National Youth Art Month
Empire State Plaza South Concourse

This one-of-a-kind exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza Art Collection, the Capital Area Art Supervisors, and the New York State Art Teachers Association. The exhibit, held each year during National Youth Art Month, features works of art created by students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Through special tours and educational resources, the program introduces the Plaza Art Collection into the curriculum of local elementary and middle schools where the students are invited to create their own works of art by interpreting the Plaza Art Collection.
