About the Student Art Project

The Child Mind Institute believes the arts are critical to child development and academic success. They promote self-esteem and provide opportunities for self-expression. The Child Mind Institute invites public and independent schools to participate in our Student Art Project, a gallery program dedicated to displaying works of art created by student artists. We invite schools to prepare an exhibition for our gallery based on a theme chosen by their art teachers. Student pieces are displayed prominently and each exhibition launches with an opening reception for student artists, their families, and the entire school community, hosted by the Child Mind Institute.

If your child’s school would like to participate in a future gallery show, please contact Angela Gage, the CMI Student Art Project Curator, at 646.625.4281 or angela.gage@childmind.org. Art teachers are also welcome to contact us on behalf of their students.
