Message from Principal Re-Sugiura *Updated Week of 6/4/2020*

Hello Art and Design Community,

The High School of Art and Design is proud to present “The 2020 Virtual Spring Arts Festival”, the first fully digitized exhibition of student work in the history of Art and Design, on view from June 4, 2020 to May 30, 2021. The site goes live at 4 PM on June 4 and can be found at

Over the past eighty three years, Art and Design has evolved its showcase to represent its major areas in visual arts as part of a year-end showcase. Normally, this would run two weeks in the spring and be taken down prior to the close of June classes. We are fortunate to celebrate the same level of professional-level execution in a virtual space.

This exhibition will bring together a selection of new and recent student work across the practical to experimental oeuvres. A lens of creation and innovation from the beginning of this school year produces a dichotomy between work on our students' culture, lived experiences versus their isolation brought about through a pandemic.

The exhibition will also feature testimonials from seniors, a section dedicated entirely to the art developed in response to the pandemic and a student PSA competition supported by our institutional partners at NYU Tisch’s Kanbar School of Film and Television. We invite all to attend and revel in the culture of creation and innovation that makes Art and Design the premier visual arts secondary school in NYC.

  • A&D SEL Newsletter #1

    One way Art and Design is evolving to fit the remote learning landscape is through social and emotional learning (SEL) supports. Our guidance department has assembled this weekly SEL update in conjunction with the Community Revitalization Partnership to help all community members refocus and reflect with practices and supports for mental health.
