Happy New Year from the TeenTix Newsroom! This year, we challenge you to explore new artistic mediums, genres, and subjects, all for $5 with your TeenTix pass.

If you’re interested in branching into the visual arts, the Henry Art Gallery has more engrossing, novel exhibitions coming through 2024. Raúl de Nieves’s A window to the see, a spirit star chiming in the wind of wonder… opened at the Henry in September of 2023 and will continue well into summer. We suggest opening your year with the one-of-a-kind multimedia experience to set the tone for many more explosive experiences to come. Music’s rich but often-unexplored history is getting a spotlight at the Northwest African American Museum through their Positive Frequencies exhibit. Check it out to learn more about how music plays a role in Black History.

The thrills of live performance are like no other, and the Seattle Baroque Orchestra, with Early Music Seattle, is looking to highlight the unexplored musical depths of Czech musicians from the Baroque era. If you’re seeking new musical experiences in Western art music, make sure to keep Party Bohemienne on your radar for January.

If you would like to support more local students, check out UW Drama’s rendition of A Thick Description of Harry Smith (Vol. 1), which utilizes a variety of storytelling styles to portray true and imagined stories from Smith’s life. Keep your eyes peeled for an interview with director Nick O’Leary, coming soon to the TeenTix Blog!

Film buff? Check out The Hole at Northwest Film Forum, Tsai Ming-liang’s hilarious, poignant pandemic story released 20 years before… well, you know. The film center has highlighted Ming-liang’s work this month, showing his feature debut Rebels of the Neon God in early January.

Regardless of what art you choose to consume this month and this year, we hope you put your TeenTix passes to use and consider what kind of art you want to surround yourself with.
