The Colby College Museum of Art is pleased to announce a pilot program, Young Curators, designed to offer Waterville and Winslow high school students immersion in museum practice through arts-centered learning and production. This installation will showcase the student’s research and art-making skills that directly relate to works on art in the Museum’s permanent collection. As part of this program students have both created and curated the works in this exhibition.
This exhibition can be found in the Harrimann Student Lounge on the second floor of the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion.
