Future Tenant’s Arts Marketing Project (AMP’d) is now accepting visual and performance submissions from artists aged 13-19 in the Pittsburgh area. We are sending out a call for artwork about the transition of growing up. AMP'd students will be curating the exhibit, and selected work will be part of the “Transformation Generation” show at Future Tenant Gallery, up from May 14-18 during the Pittsburgh International Children's Festival. An open reception with student performances will also be on May 17 from 6-9pm.

About The Transformation Generation:
The Transformation Generation is a show being produced by AMP'd, Future Tenant's educational collaboration with students from Urban Pathways and CAPA. The Transformation Generation is a chance for artists between the ages of 13-19 to showcase work that talks about life's transitions through the eyes of teenagers. The work will be complex and varied, and will underline teenage perspective while conveying various aspects of the teenage years to children and adults. Through its display, the community may see both positive hopes/ dreams of childhood, as well as a harsh touch of reality, and real world expectations. The show is meant to inspire and cause the audience to rethink their understanding of teen years.
Future Tenant’s AMP’d (Arts Marketing Project) is a partnership with a group of twenty dedicated high school students from Urban Pathways and CAPA. AMP’d students are working together with Future Tenant staff to learn about arts management concepts through a series of afternoon workshops, and in turn are producing a student-run show. Workshops include multimedia activities, projects, and guest speakers all dedicated to different arts management concepts.
