Failure Lab is a museum-led leadership program for sixteen Denver-area high school students. Participants work with artists, museum staff, and their peers to organize exhibitions, plan events, and develop programming. Rather than focusing on achievement, Failure Lab is dedicated to developing creativity, becoming a place where the risk of failure is always a possibility.


“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place, where colors are brighter, the air is softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” - Elizabeth Lawrence  

Young Hearts is an immersive installation that reflects the innocence, wonder, and joy of being young. As a collective expression of wild imaginations, this exhibition is a playful display of creativity and identity.  

Created in collaboration by Artist in Residence Cami Galofre and Failure Lab Teens, Young Hearts invites you to reconnect with your inner child and escape into a world of magic.
