Founded in 1982 by artists, scholars, and patrons of the arts, including Andy Warhol, New York Academy of Art is a not-for-profit cultural and educational institution which combines intensive technical training in the fine arts with active critical discourse. Academy students are taught traditional methods and techniques and encouraged to use these skills to make vital contemporary art. Through major exhibitions, a lively speaker series, and an ambitious educational program, the Academy serves as a creative and intellectual center for all artists dedicated to highly skilled, conceptually aware figurative and representational art.
The Academy has become one of the brightest lights in the city’s cultural landscape since it started in the 1980s. No longer just a school, it is now a center of progressive figurative art, producing some of the most compelling voices in the art world today.
