Before & After

We're mounting a new social media campaign centered around artistic growth & we need your help. We're collecting before & after shots of artwork showing artistic development after spending some time studying at the Art Students League. 

Please send us a work sample from when you first started taking classes here and another photo that clearly demonstrates your progress.

If selected, your submissions will be paired in any potential social media posts. We are accepting works in all media. See samples below.

Exhibition Outreach Application

Open Enrollment

For more than 141 years, the Art Students League of New York has been committed to promoting the art of its emerging artists and members. To further our mission, in July 2006 the League initiated the new Exhibition Outreach program bringing the work of our emerging artists to exhibitions in various venues throughout the New York metropolitan region.

 

In our thirteenth year the Exhibition Outreach program continues to reach out to new venues and students. So far we have provided more than 500 students with over 95 exhibition opportunities to display their work and allowed the public to see and appreciate the quality of these talented painters, sculptors, printmakers, and draftsmen.

Once students submit their images and documents, their information will be added to the Exhibition Outreach Database. Throughout the year, the Exhibition Outreach Program mounts exhibitions in NYC-area corporate, medical and public spaces. Each exhibition lasts anywhere from 3, 6, to 9 months. Once the Outreach team finds the right match for a venue, we send digital albums of the submitted students' work as a proposal.  Upon  approval by the venue partners, we will contact the chosen artists and walk them through the process of participating in an exhibition. 

Students will experience preparing their work, including photographing, framing , wrapping in sufficient protection and delivering their artwork to the location, keeping a record of their artwork, submitting their latest biography, resume and artist statement. We ask students to present themselves and their work on a professional level. The Exhibition Outreach program not only allows students to experience and understand how to be a professional  but also helps students to build their resume.   

The Art Students League of New York and its venue partners are not insured to cover more than $5,000.

Eligibility:

• Open to Art Students League students CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN CLASSES.

• Previously accepted exhibitors are eligible to re-apply but must fill out the "update" application and submit new artwork with this link: https://theartstudentsleagueofny.submittable.com/submit/57853/exhibition-outreach-program-portfolio-...
