Future of art education hangs in the balance

PS 75 3.06_18

This could be a pivotal year for art in school, with the upcoming mayoral election.  Arts to Grow joined over 30 local arts organization to engage the mayoral candidates on a conversation about the future of art education.

Eight candidates engaged in this dialogue and started on a discussion on how to concretely integrate art education in schools.  Unfortunately, not all candidates engaged in this conversation, and the future of art education still hangs in the balance.
