Art Future NYC aims to expand access for underrepresented NYC students to tools, resources and information which increase understanding of art & design career and educational opportunities. We recognize the brilliance of communities who are historically underrepresented and underrecognized in fields of art & design (people of color, people from low-income backgrounds, first generation college students, immigrants, etc), and are committed to bridging the gap to college and career resources.

Community partners include Ashcan Studio of Art, Joan Mitchell Foundation, Parsons Precollege Programs, and Parsons Scholars Program.
