Interview with Teen Council Member Nikky Gonzalez, Bard High School Early College ’16

This summer, the Bronx Museum is extremely pleased to sponsor one of its longtime Teen Council members, Nikky Gonzalez (Bard High School Early College ’16), at Skidmore College’s Pre-College Studio Art Program this summer. The program offers special workshops and hosts visiting artists, providing access to state of the art studio facilities, special panel discussions, and museum visits.


Before Nikky heads to Saratoga Springs for the program this month, the Bronx Museum caught up with her to learn more about her experiences with Teen Council, her advice to teens interested in pursuing arts-related careers, and her ambitious goals for the future.
