The Exhibition Outreach Program

About the Program

The Exhibition Outreach Program (EOP) places the work of emerging League artists in front of hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers each year. Artists in the program gain professional experience by entering their work in competitions, preparing it for public display, and marketing their work for sale. Exhibition venues include AT Kearney, Squire Patton Boggs, the Affordable Art Fair in addition to traditionally under served communities. Since its inception in 2006, EOP has placed works by more than 600 artists in more than 200 exhibitions. Exhibition Outreach is led by Leah McCloskey, a professional, exhibiting artist, curator, and former League student. EOP is open to all students currently enrolled in League classes, and some exhibitions may be open to members of the League, not enrolled in classes.

Become a Part of Exhibition Outreach

Throughout the year, EOP mounts exhibitions with our venue partners in corporate, medical and public spaces in the New York area. League students currently enrolled in classes are encouraged to submit their work to the EOP image database. When the Exhibition Outreach team finds the right match for a venue, we will contact the chosen artists and walk them through the process of participating in an exhibition.
