Art in the Making follows works created by teachers and students of three New York City art institutions along with their counter parts from noteable Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. schools of art.

In a time of constant change and advances in the methods of “making,” this exhibition aims to provide a lens into time-honored art institutions. The exhibition marks, in part, the recent anniversaries of New York City art schools: the 50th anniversary of the New York Studio School, the 125th anniversary of the Pratt Institute, and the 140th anniversary of The Art Students League of New York. The exhibit explores approaches to teaching, learning and making art—as relevant today as in decades and centuries gone by.

Art in the Making includes works by many of the most recognizable painters who have studied or taught at these long-standing teaching institutions. The artist alumni included in the exhibition are: Edna Andrade, Milton Avery, Thomas Hart Benton, Lee Bontecou, Peter Busa, Helen Frankenthaler, Stephen Greene, Chaim Gross, Hans Hofmann, John Marin, Reuben Nakian, Jackson Pollock, Richard Pousette-Dart, and Paul Reed, among others. For those artists who continue to actively make art as well as commit to the teaching of it, the exhibition features works by Diane Burko, Peter Cox, Bill Jensen, Knox Martin, Graham Nickson, Elizabeth Osborne, Larry Poons, William Scharf and Kit White, among others.
