A flat, geometric, somewhat abstract painting in shades of gray and brown features a narrow skyscraper dappled with golden circles suggesting sunlight. At the uppermost tier of the building, slightly to its right and partially hidden behind the building itself, a bright white circle suggesting the sun blasts a radius of white light onto and around the building, creating a halo-like effect. Streams of fog or steam descend down around the structure.

Teens are invited to draw from their own experiences to paint a personal interpretation of a particular place or landscape, inspired by the works of Georgia O’Keeffe and the current exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe: “My New Yorks.”

Because this program includes a visit to the galleries, museum admission is required. Museum admission is free to Chicago teens under 18 and all children under 14.

Participants are encouraged to return on Friday or Saturday during Teen Open Studio, 11:00–3:00 in Studio C, to continue exploring landscapes and finish any artworks still in progress from this session.
