Have you seen our Annual Open Show artist interviews?

We interviewed a few of the artists who participated in our 19th Annual Open Show.  We wanted to highlight their experience participating in the show, give you a look into their artistic process, and hear their opinions on other artists artworks in the show. Check it out :

Art Lab is a 501(c)(3) non-profit school of fine and applied art, established in 1975.  We are located on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden.



Art Lab Board and Staff is committed to supporting Racial Justice. Therefore, we want all of the children under our care to feel safe, loved, and cared for. Our goal is that our young artist students develop creativity, gain a life long love of the arts, and are encouraged to celebrate all cultures through art.  

Art Lab is committed to sharing values of diversity and inclusion in order to fulfill our mission in offering Staten Island the best possible and most professional independent school of fine and applied art. We firmly believe that we can best promote excellence by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff and by creating a climate of respect that is supportive of their success. We recognize that the responsibility for excellence, diversity, and inclusion starts with leadership, administration, faculty, staff, and students.

Further, we support, at all times, celebrating the spectrum of human diversity, and nurturing a genuine understanding of the many differences-including race, ethnicity, gender, age, socio-economic status, national origin, sexual orientation, ability, and religion that enrich the community as a whole. Each Art Lab employee and board member shall share the responsibility of creating and maintaining an environment of mutual respect and support.

A special thanks to our sponsors!
