The Nasher Teens meet with Teen Coordinator Jesse Huddleston (center)

Every meeting is like a breath of fresh air. It’s a place where I feel like all of my creativity can be expressed and accepted. I love and appreciate the respect everyone has for each other and how mature & understanding everyone is in our discussions. I can’t wait to see how the Nasher Teen Council grows even further

Bibliographic Resource

Reading Black Art: A Bibliography is an online resource that will aid in a better understanding of and engagement with work by Black artists in the Nasher Museum collection. It is a non-exhaustive bibliography on art, art history and visual culture of the African Diaspora. This curated selection presents a wide array of instructive texts and will be updated monthly. Teens who want to learn more about the arts can find exhibition catalogues, books on photography, and books on visual culture that speak to their interests.
