This year's Made in New York exhibit at the Schweinfurth Art  Center will be based on a theme titled Envisioning the Future. The theme is inspired by the Peter Drucker quote, "The best way to predict the future is to create it."
This is a break from the traditional annual Made in New York exhibit, where the only requirement was that the artist reside in the state of New York. Envisioning the Future is an opportunity for artists to exhibit work that may reflect, but is not limited to, themes such as environment, community, technology, aging, globalism and more.  READ MORE

Starting in March 2017, "word, revisited" will enable participants to listen to, and then react to what they heard, what they felt, what moved them via a Q&A period with the presenter. READ MORE
