Winter 2017 Exhibition flyer

The Outreach Art Program Winter 2017 Exhibition consists of the work of 33 high school students divided into six teams that created individual drawings, plates, photos, text-based graphic designs and poetry The result is an accordion-style book per group.  These books are hand bound and in small editions, so all students will have their own original with additional sets for display.  On view will be the books and some other support material. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Located in the 2nd floor lobby of the Foundation Building. Opening reception is Tuesday, February 7 at 6 p.m.

The Saturday Outreach Pre-College Program is profoundly grateful to the Jacques & Natasha Gelman Foundation for its major support.

We gratefully acknowledge our other generous donors: The Altman Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Hyde and Watson Foundation, The Bay & Paul Foundations, and The Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation.

Outreach is happy to welcome back Ava’s Smile for a special post-Outreach poetry project with guest artist Alex Velozo.

  • 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.
