Learning Through Art, the pioneering arts-education program of the Guggenheim Museum, presents A Year with Children 2013, an exhibition that showcases selected artworks by New York City public-school students in grades two through six. These students participated in a yearlong artist-residency program that partners professional teaching artists with classroom teachers in each of the city's five boroughs to design collaborative projects that explore art and ideas related to the classroom curriculum. Approximately one hundred creative and imaginative works, including drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, paintings, and collage, will be on display during this six-week installation.
Learning Through Art and A Year with Children 2013 are generously supported by Gail May Engelberg and The Engelberg Foundation, as well as The Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation. Support is also provided by The Edmond de Rothschild Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
Additional funding is provided by the Sidney E. Frank Foundation; Guggenheim Partners, LLC; the National Endowment for the Arts; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; the Gap Foundation; The BRIM Fund; the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Inc.; and the Office of the Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer.
