Congratulations to GEMS Member Regean for being selected to give a speech at last week's MoMA The Museum of Modern Art "In The Making" 2015 Teen Art Show! Check out some of the art work she along with her amazing classmates worked on in the Corpus Collectus: Breaking Up Bodies Using Large-Scale Stencils and Prints workshop, where they explored art techniques to get past our preconceived ideas about what a human body should look.
