Launched by the Whitney Museum of American Art in collaboration with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the multi-year research project “Room to Rise” found improved personal growth, life skills, community engagement and career horizons among the long-terms benefits of teen programming at art museums.
