This spring the Youth Advisory Board explores the intersection between art, science and technology. Working closely with the artists and projects in the upcoming exhibition, Intimate Science, YAB participants will conduct experiments, research, and collaborate with exhibiting artists to investigate the unconventional application of science and technology to visual art. YAB gives young people the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and participate in their community by exploring relevant social and personal issues through visual arts. YAB is organized by Southern Exposure’s Artists in Education Program in collaboration with local community-based youth organizations. The program bridges neighborhoods and cultures by pairing local artists with teens, who may not otherwise have access to the arts.
