In its 41st year, Learning Through Art (LTA), the pioneering arts education program of the Guggenheim Museum, presents A Year with Children 2012, an exhibition organized by the Sackler Center for Arts Education at the Guggenheim Museum and on view at the museum from May 11 to June 13, 2012. This annual exhibition showcases select artworks by students in grades two through six from eleven public schools who participated in LTA during the 2011–12 school year, representing New York City’s five boroughs.
Approximately one hundred creative and imaginative works, including drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, paintings, assemblage, and outdoor site-specific art, will be on display during this five-week installation. This year, in addition to works being shown in the Annex Level 3 Gallery, the exhibition will use interstitial spaces in the museum to display projects. Two site-specific installations designed and built by third graders at PS 48 in Staten Island will be shown on the museum’s terrace and will be visible to visitors from the Monitor 3 gallery.
Works by third grade students from PS 9 in Brooklyn—transparencies that show multiple layers of their identity—will also be installed on the gallery’s windows.
Suitable for all ages.
