Pence Gallery seeks teens interested in public art

The Pence Gallery announces Teens Take Charge, a free, teen-driven program designed to explore, create and celebrate community through public art.

Over the course of four months, participants will learn about the diversity within public art and how it contributes to a community, while developing strong skills in leadership, public speaking and collaborative event planning. At the end of the program, participants will create a free-standing public art piece and organize a one-day community celebration of the arts.

The Pence Gallery is looking for 15 to 20 teens to participate in this program. Participation is free and all Davis teens with an interest in the arts are eligible. Applications are due by Sunday, Feb. 9, at midnight. Participants will be announced by Friday, Feb. 14.

Teens Take Charge participants will:
* Plan and execute a one-day arts festival, celebrating local art;
* Meet with public artists and visit their studios;
* Create a free-standing public art piece;
* Visit public art sites and community art centers in various communities;
* Meet with staff from local museums, arts centers and arts commissions;
* Explore how public art contributes to community, transforms space and communicates messages;
* Create a unique digital record through video, blogging and images;
* Socialize, collaborate and get to know other teens interested in the arts;
* Learn how social, environmental and political issues can influence artists;
* Gain leadership skills, develop résumés and strengthen college applications.

* Davis teens ages 15 to 17 with an interest in public art;
* Teens with experience or interest in art (music, painting, sculpture, fashion, website development, photography, graphic design, video, drawing, etc.);
