    • Since 2005, the AAM’s Young Curators of the Roaring Fork (YCRF) has engaged high school students in a six-month program that builds aesthetic valuation, leadership, organizational, and critical thinking skills. After participants identify an exhibition theme, lead a call for submissions, and assemble the exhibition, an opening is held to celebrate this student-driven initiative.

    • As part of the rising “Generation Z,” the Young Curators of the Roaring Fork seek to challenge the stereotypes that portray them and capture unique voices that can be tools for social change. YCRF participants have also organized a movie night on Friday, April 15, at 6 p.m., to share short films that bring the exhibition’s themes to the screen.

      Generation Now runs April 10–24, 2016 in the Education Workshop of the AAM.
