ADMISSION: Free for teens

The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s Teen Art Connect (TAC) is excited to introduce the TAC Squad, a new program designed to provide teens with a deeper connection to the CJM. Members of the TAC Squad will gain unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to The Museum – a world-class art institution – through workshops, artist talks, screenings, special teen programs, and more while simultaneously exploring contemporary art, identity, and Jewish culture with a community of like-minded peers.

Join Our Squad
