Student Art Project
The Child Mind Institute believes the arts are critical to child development and academic success. They promote self-esteem and provide opportunities for self-expression. This is why we launched the Child Mind Institute Student Art Project.
We invite schools to prepare an exhibition for our gallery based on a theme chosen by one of their own art teachers. Student pieces are displayed prominently and each exhibition launches with an opening reception for student artists, their families, and the entire school community, hosted by the Child Mind Institute.
About the Student Art Project
Four times a year the Child Mind Institute invites public and independent schools to participate in our Student Art Project, a gallery program dedicated to displaying works of art created by student artists.
Our non-juried gallery program presents 26-34 student works of art to be displayed in designated gallery space on the second floor of the Child Mind Institute. Our resident curator, Angela Gage, works directly with schools to facilitate all aspects of the exhibition process—from providing permission slips to framing and mounting artwork to printing exhibition invitations.
Student work exhibited in our gallery program is also available for public viewing online in the virtual gallery on our website. The virtual collection goes up when the exhibition opens and remains online after the exhibit closes. Exhibiting schools also have the opportunity to link their website to our online gallery.
Call for Submissions
We invite you to learn more about opportunities for your school to participate in our Student Art Project and consider submitting works for a future exhibition. For more information and submission guidelines, contact Angela Gage, the Child Mind Institute Student Art Project Curator at 646.625.4281 or email@example.com.
The Child Mind Institute Student Art Project is an expression of our commitment to community outreach. We want all kids to feel welcome in our home—and have the chance to share their talents with others.
About the Art at the Child Mind Institute
We believe that our surroundings matter. Our headquarters were designed to be child- and family-friendly, with public spaces that are bright and spacious and play areas that are interesting and engaging. The art on our walls is part of that experience. We want the children and families who visit us to be comfortable—and we also want them to be inspired.
Thanks to the generosity of friends of the Child Mind Institute, a wonderful private collection of contemporary art is on loan and displayed at our headquarters. Whimsical pieces by a number of important contemporary artists are juxtaposed with the fantastic rotating gallery of works by student artists.
