2018 Teen Chaos Collaboration

The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department seeks teen artists to submit their artwork for the third annual“Chaos Collaboration,” an art show with music performances for teens by teens, aimed at bringing a fresh perspective to local culture.

The art exhibit will be Feb. 23 through Feb. 24 at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell St. An artist reception with musical performances will be from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23. The public is invited from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, to view the art, listen to live music, and watch live screen printing and more.

“Chaos Collaboration” empowers teen artists to create artwork for exhibition, showcasing their skills and their contribution to community culture. Research has shown that participation in the arts improves one’s physical and psychological well-being, and is a driver for the creation of social capital.

The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department Teen Programs provides social, recreational, athletic, and artistic opportunities for teens throughout the community.
