King Barnes is a rising senior at Maynard H. Jackson High School in Atlanta, Georgia.
"Hi, my name is King Barnes and I’ve been working at the High Museum of Art in the Teen Team program for just about a year. I really enjoyed my time being on the team. Along with being exposed to all of the art, culture, and people, it has helped me look at the world in a totally different way. I’ve always been really interested in art since I was very young. But, I’ve seriously showed an interest in it as I get older and further into high school."
