“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place, where colors are brighter, the air is softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” – Elizabeth Lawrence
Young Hearts is an immersive installation that reflects the innocence, wonder and joy of being young. As a collective expression of wild imaginations, this exhibition is a playful display of creativity and identity.
Created in collaboration by Artist in Residence Cami Galofre and Failure Lab Teens, Young Hearts invites you to reconnect with your inner child and escape into a world of magic.
Failure Lab is a museum-led leadership program for Denver-area high school students. Students work with artists, museum staff, and their peers to organize exhibitions, plan events and develop programming. Rather than focusing on achievement, Failure Lab is dedicated to developing creativity and building community, becoming a place where the risk of failure is always a possibility. Students in Failure Lab earn up to $300/semester for their participation.
Young Hearts is currently on view through March 1, 2022. More more information on the exihibtion and how to apply for the spring semester visit mcadenver.org/teens/failure-lab and check out MCA Denver Teens Instagram Account to stay in the loop with events and other happenings.
