Description: Works of art by 76 of New York City public schools' most talented students in grades K through 12 will be displayed in the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for two months this summer through P.S. Art, a project of the New York City Department of Education and Studio in a School Association, Inc.
P.S. Art is celebrating its tenth year. The juried exhibition P.S. Art 2012: Celebrating the Creative Spirit of NYC Kids will open for special viewing by the public beginning at 6:30pm on Tuesday, June 12, for participants in the Museum Mile Festival, and will remain on view through Aug. 12.
The annual P.S. Art competition fully integrates all public school students in K through the 12th grade. The works in this year's exhibition were made by young artists with a broad spectrum of life experience: students having special needs are represented, as are those enrolled in advanced placement art classes. The exhibition shows how student creativity, artistic ability, and subject matter evolve in the journey from childhood to adulthood.
The works in the P.S. Art 2012 exhibition were chosen from 786 submissions citywide. A jury comprised of members of the art community, including staff from the Met, made the final selection.
All of the works in the exhibition will also be featured on the metmuseum.org.
