I received an e-mail from my sister this morning, telling me that her daughter’s high school, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School (in Bethesda, Maryland), has a new project: a “pop-up museum” called “The Museum of Contemporary American Teenagers.” The pop-up location is an empty shell of a former suburban restaurant, and the project is meant to explain teen life and culture, including its stresses, stereotypes, struggles, humor and hopes.

The museum will open December 7th, and will be accessible on select days over a 10 day period (December 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16). The museum will include approximately 30 exhibits, 150 ceramic selfie sculptures, expansive wall murals and a stage for performances.

You can learn more at the MoCAT website or via coverage here in yesterday’s Washington Post.
