Free Arts NYC is grateful for Sotheby’s dedicated partnership in hosting our Annual Youth Showcase for the fourth year. A core pillar of our program is to address the lack of equity in the arts by providing access and opportunities into a wide variety of creative paths.
For 25 years, Free Arts NYC has worked to level the playing field by providing high-quality arts programming in New York City. Through partnerships with schools, community centers, and transitional housing facilities in underrepresented communities, Free Arts NYC works to support the self-confidence and resiliency of over 1,500 children and teens annually.
Free Arts NYC is dedicated to supporting and showcasing the next great generation of young artists. The artwork in this show was made by teens enrolled in our Portfolio Development, Creative Lab, and Free Arts Day Programs.
