New for Teens!

For any teen whose response to a work of contemporary art has been “I don’t get it” or “Why is this art?” we’re offering something new.

This program is an informal discussion for teens who want to learn some basic tools for engaging, interpreting, and experiencing contemporary and modern artworks. “How to Look at Contemporary Art” will teach teens about strategies and tactics for looking at contemporary art as well as about its art historical context.

Mark your calendars for:
March 12, 2–3 p.m.
March 23, 2–3 p.m.

Meet MFAH Education Staff in the Audrey Jones Beck Building Lobby (5601 Main Street)
at 2 p.m.

Want to get more involved?

HANG@MFAH is a group of motivated area teens who are interested in the visual arts and digital media. Guided by a local mentor artist, HANG@MFAH experiments with new digital tools to develop and organize innovative programming at the museum. Teens also have the opportunity to learn about careers in the arts while connecting to their peers, museum staff, and local arts community.

Interested teens can e-mail for more information.


In an effort to more fully understand pre-teens and teens at the museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, is conducting a research study with select pre-teens and teens. Your input can help us discover how teens use technology at the museum as well as attitudes on informal learning in the museum. Your participation will help us create the best experience for you and your peers. This survey will only take a few moments of your time.

Simply click here to complete the survey.

HANG@MFAH receives generous support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Special funds have been provided by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
