About the Program

The Art Students League is committed to offering exhibition opportunities to our student/member artists. Exhibition Outreach (EO) displays the work of League artists in venues throughout the tristate area for viewing by hundreds of thousands of people.

Students gain experience entering their work in competition, preparing their work for display, and marketing their work for sale. Since its inception in 2006, EO has placed works by more than 800 artists in more than 200 exhibitions.

League artists have exhibited at major venues and fairs, including the Affordable Art Fair, the Governors Island Art Fair (2012–2014). League artists have also participated in EOP public art events, including Sketch in the Park. Other exhibition venues have included AT Kearney, Squire Patton Boggs, ​NYIAC, and the Conference Board. Most recently, EO has expanded its reach with institutional partnerships, including Riverside Park Conservancy, and a new collaboration with ChaShaMa.
