Artist Resource Fair


The Artist Resource Fair is intended to teach students and alumni about not-for-profit organizations and resources that will support their professional practices. It also seeks to encourage the development of new professional relationships.

This partnership program with NYU Tisch School of the Arts's Office of Career Development is part of ongoing strategy by Cooper Union’s Center for Career Development to create and foster positive external relationships, attract more participants through shared contacts, and to effectively use its resources.

Stay tuned for the Fall 2021 date.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
