Organized by The Bronx Museum of the Arts Teen Council, The Mind’s Abstraction features artwork created by New York City-based teen artists. Young people were invited to submit artworks expressing their personal perspectives on mental health, though an open call. From the submissions, Teen Council selected the artworks on display in this gallery for their annual exhibition.
