Agnes Gund’s NYC–Based Art Education Program Plans New National Scope

Studio in a School will have a new national scope, according to Robin Pogrebin in the New York Times. The New York City nonprofit gives public school students classes with professional artists. It will grow with the help of a new Studio Institute.

The organization’s founder and chairwoman, Agnes Gund, said “These are programs that can be replicated.” Thomas Cahill, the current president and chief executive, will serve as the institute’s director.

The program has worked with nearly 800,000 students, many from low-income households, since its founding in 1977.
