teens take the metIf you’re 13 years or older and live in the New York City area, be sure to crash the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art this Friday, October 17th from 5:00pm – 8:00pm for the “Teens Take the Met” event! Middle and High School students are encouraged to join in for teen-only activities across the Museum including art making, performances, gallery activities ‘for teens by teens’, music, dancing, and more! This fun and enriching event is co-organized with over 40 community partners, including the New York Film Academy.

If you’re coming out, please use the ground-level entrance at Fifth Avenue and 81st Street on the Upper East Side. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m.

“Teens Take the Met” is free and open to all teens 13+ with a middle or high school ID. No need to RSVP―just show up!

The New York Film has partnered with the MET in other activities, including our “Art and Film” workshop, which has taken place for the past three years. Headed up by Documentary Chair, Andrea Swift, NYFA students learn the fundamentals of documentary filmmaking. Through the workshop, students create short documentary pieces about the Metropolitan Museum’s exceptional art.

Hope to see you there this Friday!
