The young artists of the 2020 Summer Art Intensive (CUSAI) rose to the challenge of learning remotely with creative spirit and determination. Taught entirely online this year, students worked remotely, turning their homes into artists' studios where productive energies flowed and amazing artworks were produced. The digital 2020 Summer Art Intensive Exhibition features student drawing, animation, graphic design, and digital photography. See all the galleries at the CUSAI site.

  • 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.
