P.S. Art is an annual celebration of achievement in the arts in New York City public schools. This juried exhibition of work created during the 2019–20 school year by talented young artists showcases the creativity of 122 prekindergarten through grade 12 students from all five boroughs, including students from District 75, a citywide district serving students with disabilities. The exhibition consists of paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, mixed-media works, collages, and drawings. Each work of art demonstrates personal expression, imaginative use of media, the results of close observation, and an understanding of artistic processes.
Dedicated art teachers encourage students to look closely at their worlds and respond creatively through art making. As students take art classes from one year to the next, they increase their understanding of art, sharpen their skills, and learn to harness their imaginations for artistic expression.
A panel of arts specialists from the New York City Department of Education and Studio in a School selected 348 semifinalists from more than 1,100 submissions. A jury of distinguished members of the City's arts community, including staff of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, chose the works on display in P.S. Art 2020. This exhibition celebrates the students' journeys and discoveries from early childhood to young adulthood.
Interspersed among the actual works on view are a number of labels with reproductions of works—a poignant reminder of the challenges faced in the creation of this year's exhibition due to the global pandemic. We will place the missing works on view as we receive them.
