Alice Mao, a 17 year old student at the League, teamed up with her 15 year old classmate Taylor Wang, to mastermind “Student Art Spaces” a venue for young artists like themselves to show their work. The League is mentoring Student Art Spaces (SAS), and will showcase their curations. We are proud to support SAS in their endeavor to support young artists. “We want to give underprivileged artists a chance to shine, without having to worry about the costs. It’s going to be exciting to curate all the artwork. …This [show] is a non-profit event, and we are working as volunteers to put on this show because we know, as young artists ourselves, that we would really appreciate this sort of show. It’s often events like these early in artists’ careers that give them confidence and propel them forwards.” – Alice Mao and Taylor Wang, Student Art Spaces Mao and Wang want this show to be accessible for all young artists, including some overseas artists without funds to frame and ship their work. Overseas artists?!?? I can’t wait to see what they bring in! Mao and Wang are tackling all the steps for a successful show: statement, plan, website, grant funding, press releases, and even a kickstarter page (with a cool video about the project). Non-Prof rock stars! Just between you and me, if you want to see something truly impressive, check out Alice Mao’s Instagram art page. Whoa. Girl’s got talent, education, and focus. Trifecta! I loved having her in my classes. She even told me what a meme was. Impressed with these girls? We are! The League are proud to support the Student Art Spaces project. We invite you to check out their website, and consider making a small donation to the SAS Kickstarter page to show your support. Do you know a teen who would like to make some work to show with us? Check out Summer Art Camps at the League. Drawing, painting, and printmaking will all make great submission potentials!
