Go inside the landmarked American Fine Arts Society building to see where famous artists like Jackson Pollock, Georgia O’Keefe and Robert Smithson learned their craft at the Arts Student League. Led by the league’s Digital Communications Manager, Rudy Bravo, Untapped Cities Insiders will tour the historic building, which was constructed in 1892, see inside galleries and studios, and learn the storied history of the art school. The Arts Student League was founded in 1875 to explore and express ideas outside the artistic norms of the time and over the past nearly 150 years has turned out some of the most renowned names in American art history. Today, over 5,000 students a year take a wide range of affordable art classes at the Arts Students League under the direction of world class artists and teachers.
