Experience the Visual Arts This Summer in New York City


Riverdale, N.Y. – Studio and art history majors around the country are invited to apply to ART|NYC at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, an exciting and affordable way to experience the visual arts in a global cultural capital this summer. Art majors have the opportunity to learn and to grow—intellectually, creatively, professionally, and personally—in a welcoming academic environment.

Each student pursues individual creative, academic and career interests through directed study with faculty and mentors. Seminars and field trips bring students face to face with current developments in contemporary art and innovative approaches to interpreting the art of the past. Express bus service and the subway provide easy access to the center of New York City. From the application process to the selection of courses and the completion of final projects, individual advising encourages the right choices for creative and academic achievement.

Housing for ART|NYC participants is provided on the College’s wooded campus overlooking the Hudson River, just 12 miles from midtown Manhattan. In short, ART|NYC is the premier gateway to a lively, multifaceted and enduring engagement with the visual arts.

Last year, Katherine Wallace, a student at Kansas State University, participated in ART|NYC. “I had never been to New York City before, let alone spent more than a few hours with famous or well-known works of art,” Katherine recalls. “The program was a total immersion of study and discussion, of being drawn into pieces of art history and city life.” Katherine credits ART|NYC with transforming her commitment to her major and to a career in art.
