The Art Connection Annual Student Exhibition
For nearly 80 years, studio art classes for kids at Carnegie Museum of Art have nurtured budding artists. Among the museum’s distinguished student alumni are artists Andy Warhol, Philip Pearlstein, Raymond Saunders, and Duane Michals. Students in the current Art Connection program develop their artistic skills through gallery sketching, sharing ideas about original artwork in the museum’s galleries, behind-the-scenes sessions with museum staff, and art-making using a variety of materials. This exhibition showcases the work produced by fifth- through ninth-grade students inspired by the creative environment of the museum and its collections.
General support for the museum’s exhibition program is provided by The Heinz Endowments and Allegheny Regional Asset District. Carnegie Museum of Art receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
