Monday, February 3, 2020 by Tai Moses
The Totally Cool Totally Art program is having a reception to display its collection of totally cool artworks to the public. TCTA is a free Parks and Rec program for Austin teens in grades 7-12 in which teens work in various mediums and learn from professional artists. As the parks department description says, the nearly 25-year-old program is intended “to help give teens new experiences, build respect and trust, keep them out of trouble during high-risk after school hours and improve their skills in creative expression, communication, teamwork and arts appreciation.” The reception features light refreshments, short film screenings, an awards ceremony, and a chance to get your own shirt or tote bag screen-printed. Wednesday, Feb. 19, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Mexic-Arte Museum, 419 Congress Ave. The gallery show closes on March 1.
