The Outreach Winter Pre-College Program offers a 5-week Mixed-Media Guest Artist Series to thirty-two outstanding New York City area high school students. This year students were introduced to the theme "Index" with a trip to the Museum of Natural History. The students collaborated in eight teams of four, creating idiosyncratic categories to index their images as information. The student groups were responsible to print and bind an artist book of relief prints in an edition of five, with one all-inclusive Cooper Union held volume, recording the 32 individual entries.
The Saturday Outreach Program is profoundly grateful to the Jaques & Natasha Gelman Trust for its support, and gratefully acknowledges its other donors: Altman Foundation, Richard & Jeane Coyne Family Foundation, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
