The North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) hosts ArtScene, an annual free event for North Carolina teens. This year’s theme is “Zoned Out,” and the event features live music and performances, art-making activities, a pop-up teen exhibition, and food. ArtScene will be held in the Museum’s West Building with a focus on the permanent collection.
Participants have the opportunity to work with Durham-based artist and NCMA artist-in-residence Jaclyn Bowie to create improvisational animations. Bowie is a visual artist interested in hybridizing mediums and holding physical creative space for conversation in times of change and imbalance. She develops personal mythologies and translates them to the public through performance art, moving image, and objects.
