The NYSATA Legislative Exhibit is co-sponsored by the New York State Alliance for the Arts in Education (NYSSAE). This student art exhibit is held in the Legislative Well in the Capitol Building in Albany each spring. Legislators from across the state are invited to share the artistic accomplishments of their aspiring artist constituents at a reception for students, parents and teachers. The work for this year's show must be submitted by Wednesday, January 16, 2013. A committee of dedicated art educators makes all of the arrangements and notifies legislators of participants in their electoral districts. Each student receives a certificate from NYSATA and many receive letters and/or photographs from their elected representatives.
