Artslife is a leadership program for teenagers based on museum studies and design. Participants will be introduced to museum careers such as curatorial, education, development, PR/marketing, visitor services, security/registrar and execute projects collaboratively with museum staff.

Museum staff, local designers, and other arts professionals act as consultants on collaborative projects and mentor the participants. Artslife 2014 will focus specifically on design. In conjunction with MAD’s featured summer exhibition NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial, the incredible breadth of highly skilled local designers and possible design careers in NYC will be highlighted.
