2019 Legislative Exhibit

The NYSATA Legislative Exhibit is the flagship event for Youth Art Month and NYSATA's largest public display of student artwork in a government building. This year's exhibit is co-sponsored by New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). Founded in 1990 by New York City Art Educator Joan Davidson, this student art exhibit is held in "Well" in the Legislative Office Building in Albany each spring, providing an exciting opportunity for students and their families to connect with their Legislators. A committee of dedicated art educator volunteers makes all of the arrangements and notifies legislators of participants in their electoral districts. Legislators from across the state are invited to recognize the artistic accomplishments of their aspiring artist constituents at a reception for students, parents and teachers held in the Well of the LOB. Families may pre-arrange a meet-and-greet with the Assemblyman and/or Senator from their local district, which may include a photo session, office tour and/or written correspondences with their Legislators. The reception concludes with an interactive and inspiring ceremony. With the return of artwork, each student entrant receives a Certificate of Participation from NYSATA and a copy of the Legislative Student Art Exhibit brochure.

The Legislative Student Art Exhibit Committee invites you to consider showcasing your students’ artwork, through this important art advocacy exhibit opportunity.
