Coming to the League May 11 and 12, 2018
The original art ST[art]UP, the Art Students League of New York was launched by artists determined to experiment with new techniques and forms of expression.
To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the League’s building we’re throwing open the doors for a two-day extravaganza of parties and open house events.
So mark your calendars NOW and plan to join us!
ABOUT THE EVENT
At ST[art]UP you can tour the studios and travel back in time with Georgia O’Keeffe, Norman Rockwell, and Jackson Pollock; marvel at the talent of Winslow Homer, Peggy Bacon, Will Barnet, and a legion of other artists, their masterpieces hanging from the walls; and spark your imagination by delighting in workshops and demos led by contemporaries of Eva Hesse, James Rosenquist, and Ai Weiwei.
RECEPTION & AUCTION
Friday, May 11, 2018 | 7:00 – 10:00 pm
In studios evoking the grandeur of the Vanderbilt Gallery, works by the League’s renowned Instructors and Alumni, Students, and Young Artists will be on display and for sale. This strolling reception will include sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, themed cocktails, and live entertainment.
OPEN HOUSE | OPEN STUDIOS
Saturday, May 12, 2018 | 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
