Pinpoint Boston is an exhibition of work created by Urbano Youth Artists in Residence. The work in this exhibition was created during a 2021 residency led by artist Yuko Okabe that focused on illustration, storytelling, community, equity, and belonging. Teens considered how they can use illustration as a mindful method of observation and imagination to envision healthy and accessible public spaces in their communities.

This exhibition was organized by the ICA’s Teen Exhibitions Program, a group of creative teens that work together to plan, organize, and install artwork in the ICA Teen Gallery. We are excited to welcome folks to join us for a night of food, music, art viewing and making.
