The Teen Ambassadors will conclude their summer programming this week with the final five performances of “Portraits Alive!” As with previous years, program coordinator Geri Provost-Lyons has been immensely pleased with the program results. Provost-Lyons states, "It has been an awesome summer. As the students perform over time, their work gets better and better. Some visitors have returned to view the performances a second time, and we have also enjoyed the tremendous support of many former Teen Ambassadors—the program's alumni."
The visitor experience has been a positive one also. One patron commented, “What a fun program, not just for the audience but for the students who participate. These actors embraced their characters and made me want to know more about them. I hope I’m in the D.C. area next summer to see it again.” Another visitor said, “What a wonderful program! The kids obviously worked very hard and deserve some special recognition. I applaud the museum for sponsoring this.”
