The New York Academy of Art: Responding to COVID-19 and Receiving Full Support

No contributor

Since 1982, the New York Academy of Art has welcomed both students and art patrons to unique programming—both in the classroom and in its eminent collection. For decades, the not-for-profit university has also held an annual Tribeca Ball benefit these programs, with all proceeds supporting scholarships and public programming. This year, the Tribeca Ball has been cancelled due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus.

Scheduled to occur on April 6, the night was set to be a special celebration—the annual benefit’s 25th anniversary, honoring American artist and longtime trustee and faculty member Eric Fischl.

This year also marks 10 years of partnership with Van Cleef & Arpels—the Academy’s longtime title sponsor who. Despite the cancellation, the luxury jewelry brand is still donating the same amount, continuing its unwavering support of the Academy and its community during this difficult time.

“Van Cleef & Arpels will continue its support of the New York Academy of Arts, now going on its tenth year, not despite of the current situation unfolding around the world, but indeed because of it,” said Nicolas Bos, President and CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels. “The survival of the arts and education becomes even more vital especially in the face of such unprecedented crises, and the Maison will stand by its commitment to the Academy and its students in these challenging times.”

The Standard High Line

Instead of the traditional gala, the New York Academy of Art is offering special tours and exclusive previews to ticket holders in April. It has also announced that its Open Studios, scheduled to take place on April 17, is suspended, and upcoming speakers for this season’s Talks at the Academy will be rescheduled.  Until then, we’ll be following along on its Instagram—a platform that despite the pandemic is an outlet full of inspiration.
