The EXHIBITION OUTREACH PROGRAM: Showcasing work of emerging artists in public spaces


The League’s Exhibition Outreach Program (EOP) provides emerging League artists with experience entering their work in competition, preparing their work for public display, and marketing their work for sale. It puts their art in front of hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers each year, increasing appreciation for art among the general public. EOP also brings art to traditionally underserved communities. Venues for artists in EOP include Grace Institute, ING Direct Cafe, and the Affordable Art Fair.

Since its inception in 2006, the EOP—led by former League student, and current professional exhibiting artist and curator Leah McCloskey—has placed works by more than 500 artists in 100 exhibitions. EOP has also represented League artists at the 2008 through 2013 Affordable Art Fairs and other major New York City Fairs.
Become a Venue Partner

EOP is always looking for new sites to host exhibitions. When our partners host an exhibit of diverse and powerful work by League artists, they enhance their everyday environment and demonstrate their support for the arts and for the community to their employees, clients and other visitors.  If you're interested exploring being a venue partner, please call Leah McCloskey at 212-247-4510, x. 160.
