Mission Statement

Teen Art Gallery (T.A.G.) was founded in 2011 by a high school senior and has been mounting shows of works by people under 20 ever since. Run by a group of high school students, Teen Art Gallery is committed to creating opportunities for young people to share their art with wider audiences. By showing teenagers’ works in professional settings, Teen Art Gallery aims to provide visibility and recognition to work that would otherwise remain unseen. Some of Teen Art Gallery’s previous venues include Creative Time, BravinLee Programs, Salon 94, and 325 West Broadway. Teen Art Gallery’s past shows have received media attention from outlets such as the New York Times, Teen Vogue, Paper and the Huffington Post. T.A.G.’s most recent show, TAG Yourself, was held March 3, 2018 to March 9,2018 at One Brooklyn Bridge Park and showcased approximately 30 works by young artists. The works were selected from a pool of more than 800 submissions from teenagers from twenty-two states and three continents. In the future, the Teen Art Gallery intends to partner up with an organization to donate a percentage of the donations to help fund art programs for teens.
