Beacon High School - Manhattan - assume vivid astro focus


Public Art for Public Schools, a unit within the New York City School Construction Authority, is the only public art program dedicated to schools in the country. Established in 1989, the program commissions site-specific projects for new school buildings and oversees the maintenance and preservation of nearly 2000 existing artworks in the New York City Department of Education’s collection throughout the five boroughs. Our goal is to provide schools with artworks that visually enhance the learning environment, serve as unique and exciting resources for teaching, and most of all, inspire students.
