Arts Education and Social Empowerment features a selection of works from proyectArte’ students and graduates. ProyectArte is a Buenos Aires and New York-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to discover, educate, and support a diverse new generation of young emerging artists. At the ProyectArte School in Buenos Aires, a diverse group of 15 to 18 year-olds receive full 18-month scholarships to study with leading visual artists. After 18 months, the most committed graduates have the opportunity to continue their studies and develop their work in a multi-year comprehensive graduate program, as well as to exhibit their work at ProyectArte's Prima Gallery.
In addition to the exhibit, a panel with ProyectArte funder, Sebatian Cwilich, and graduate student, Paloma Marquez, will be held on March 10 at 5:30pm
