About the Program

The Art Students League is committed to offering exhibition opportunities to our student/member artists. The League’s Exhibition Outreach Program (EOP) displays the work of League artists in venues throughout the tristate area for viewing by hundreds of thousands of people. Students gain experience entering their work in competition, preparing their work for display, and marketing their work for sale.

Since its inception in 2006, EOP has placed works by more than 800 artists in more than 200 exhibitions. League artists have exhibited at major venues and fairs, including the Affordable Art Fair (2008–2017), the Governors Island Art Fair (2012–2014), League artists have also participated in EOP public art events, including Sketch in the Park. Other regular exhibition venues include AT Kearney, Squire Patton Boggs, and the Conference Board.

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.
