Beacon High School - Manhattan - assume vivid astro focus


Public Art for Public Schools (PAPS), a unit within the New York City School Construction Authority, was established in 1989 to oversee the Department of Education’s collection of permanent artwork in the city’s schools. The program’s mission is to commission new projects for new schools, and to maintain and preserve artwork in existing schools. Our ultimate goal is for every school in the city to possess at least one professional artwork, thereby visually, artistically, and educationally enhancing school learning environments.
