Returning to The Met for the 11th consecutive year, the exhibition P.S. Art: Celebrating the Creative Spirit of NYC Kids features works of art in a variety of media created by public school students in New York City. The exhibition will be on view and open to the public at The Met Fifth Avenue from June 12 through October 21, 2018.
P.S. Art highlights the talent and creativity of young artists and champions art making as a way to appreciate the cultures, life experiences, and traditions across the city. The 121 works in this year’s exhibition represent 123 students in grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in public schools throughout the five boroughs. The works were chosen from over 1,200 submissions, and the final decisions were made by a jury comprised of distinguished members of the art community, including members of The Met staff.
P.S. Art 2018: Celebrating the Creative Spirit of NYC Kids is a project of the New York City Department of Education and Studio in a School Association, Inc.
