PAST EXHIBITION – Christie’s New York 

Digital Exhibition 

In 2021, vibrant city scenes were displayed in We  New York: Cityscapes by the Children of New York City, a digital exhibition featuring drawings, collages, paintings, and prints created by children and teens in Studio NYC’s art programs. The show, hosted by Christie’s New York, offered a multifaceted portrait of New York City, from quiet neighborhood streets to panoramic views of the city’s storied skyline. It was accompanied by We  New York: Let’s Draw, a digital activity book conceived as a guide for exploratory art activities inspired by city life.

Studio NYC’s staff selected 35 artworks that capture the character of a place so close to students’ hearts. The visual stories of New York City are thematically presented in sections—Big Apple Classics, Big City Big Dreams, My City Up Close, and My Lady Liberty. With the support of Studio NYC’s dedicated artists instructors, students learned to observe their surroundings through an artist’s eye, reflect on their relationship with the city and see it in new ways.
