Teen Programs support interactions with and connections to contemporary art and artists of our time. We seek to provide and co-create platforms and resources with young people to safely ask complex questions, voice ideas and opinions, and explore critical and creative potential.

Star Tribune Foundation Art Lab, 5–8 pm Free
Choose a “task,” give a “task,” or just watch the spectacle of open-ended play unfold as plastic wrap, construction paper and metallic mylar get used in a myriad of ways. A project designed by New-York based artist Oliver Herring, TASK Party is an “improvisational event with a simple structure and very few rules” where anything can happen.
Since 2002, TASK has been organized and executed in several different cities around the world and creates almost unlimited opportunities for a group of people to interact with one another and their environment.
