ART STUDENTS LEAGUE EXPANSION
The Art Students League, founded by and for artists over 130 years ago, emphasizes the importance of artistic creativity and provides high quality education and instruction in painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture including welding and bronze castings. The League is rich in tradition that includes among past teachers and students some of the best artists of past generations including George Bellows, Alexander Calder, Georgia O’Keefe and Norman Rockwell.
The League has outgrown its present facilities and is in need of additional studio space and a reorganization of its existing configuration of spaces. It is the intention of the Art Students League to move forward with the needed renovation as quickly as possible. Towards that objective, the League has retained JLGA to undertake a feasibility study to establish a design and determine the cost and phasing schedule for implementing the redesign.
