The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual celebration of student artwork is back!

From June 12–October 21, 2018, attendees can check out the Met’s P.S. Art 2018 exhibition, the museum’s yearly showcase of artwork created by talented young artists from the City’s public schools.

Organized in partnership with the Met, the DOE, and Studio in a SchoolP.S. Art 2018 features artwork created by 123 students across all grade levels (pre-k – grade 12) and all five boroughs. Each work on display at P.S. Art 2018 has been selected by a jury of distinguished members of the City’s arts community, including staff members from the Met, and arts specialists from the DOE and Studio in a School. The works on display include paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, mixed-media works, collages, and drawings. Each work demonstrates personal expression, imagination, and an understanding of artistic processes.
