Logo for NexGen Mint. The words are encased in a Mint Teal hexagon.

The Mint Museum welcomes you and the next generation of museum-goers to find yourself at the Mint. We want you to look at, talk about, and make art. You are invited to connect with the collection, share ideas, and explore your creative potential. Additionally, we want to share with you the power of the creative process to help relax, reflect, and recharge.

NexGen empowers young adults ages 14-18 to create and cultivate artistic experiences in response to The Mint Museum’s engaging collection and exciting special exhibitions. The program responds to focus group NexGen’s expressed desire to be part of the museum and learn more about art, museum careers, and the creative process from inspiring artists.

To help facilitate this, we are offering FREE access to both Mint Museum locations for you and a friend, exclusive opportunities to interact with local and international artists and designers, and parking compensation at Mint Museum Uptown.

COVID19 Update: Although we are uncertain of the museum’s reopening date, we are working on ways for you to connect virtually with the Mint’s collection, share ideas, and explore your creative potential. Check out our Covid-19 Updates page for more information on our current opening schedule. In the meantime, explore our Museum From Home offerings for inspiration.
