RECAP: YoungArts New York Gala | April 16, 2019
On April 16, the National YoungArts Foundation held its fourth annual New York Gala inside the beautiful Temple of Dendur at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Thanks to your generosity, we raised $800,000 to support YoungArts programs and emerging artists nationwide. During the program, alumna and YoungArts trustee Ms. Szadkowski (1997 Winner in Theater & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts) announced an extended partnership between YoungArts and the gala’s Presenting Partner Baccarat that will provide YoungArts alumni with a unique opportunity to work closely with acclaimed artisans at Baccarat’s factory in France.
UPCOMING: Can We Be as Brave Alumni Exhibition Opening Reception | May 9, 2019
With “Can we be as brave?” the National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) presents the organization’s second annual alumni exhibition dedicated solely to photography. Featuring the works of 13 YoungArts alumni in Cinematic Arts, Photography and Visual Arts, the show is curated by acclaimed director, photographer and YoungArts Vice President of Artistic Programs Lisa Leone.
The works in the exhibition bravely investigate a variety of topics that are connected through multifaceted conversations about family, home and community. The artists examine cultural and historical contexts, self-love, intimacy and humanity, spirituality, and physical and psychological boundaries, and explore personal ideologies and intricacies of representation while championing the idea of multiple stories in lieu of singular viewpoints.
