Art Forms: 75 Years of Arts Education - Children's Museum of the Arts
Add to Calendar 21-06-2012 30-09-2012 15 Art Forms: 75 Years of Arts Education The Children's Museum of the Arts will open a new exhibition of antique children's artwork on June 21 (through Sept. 30) that features, for the first time, children's works from the collections of celebrated art educators Leon Bibel, Henry Schaefer-Simmern, and Sona Kludjian. This exhibition explores art education from the 1930s to today. Approximately 30 antique works, dating from the 1930s to the 1960s, are one display, juxtaposed with more than 40 contemporary works by current New York City public school students and by the museum's teaching artists. Among the most compelling works are 10 linocut prints by Alfred Cohen, a student of noted WPA artist Leon Bibel. In 1938, at the age of eight, Cohen received significant critical acclaim for a solo exhibit of 40 paintings at the Bronx House. Public schools participating in Art Forms include: PS 347 American Sign Language and English Lower School; PS 124 The Yung Wing School; PS 130 The Hernando DeSoto School; PS 158 The Bayard Taylor School; PS 3 Charrette School; Kings Collegiate Charter School; The Renaissance Charter School; Immigrant Social Services at PS 130; Williamsburg Collegiate Charter School; PS 115 Daniel Mucatel School; PS 29 John Harrigan School; PS 243 The Weeksville School; PS 116 The Mary Lindley Murray School; The Urban Assembly New York Harbor School; and MS 413 School of the Future. This year also marks the first time that works created by teaching artists themselves will be featured alongside student artwork, thanks to more space afforded by CMA's expanded new facility and gallery on Charlton Street, which opened Fall 2011. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=112716 Children's Museum of the Arts true DD/MM/YYYY
