The Art League’s Impending Duke Street Annex Move & Madison Annex Project
It’s official. The Art League is moving out of its Duke Street Annex location September 1, 2012 – after the completion of our school’s Summer 2012 Term. We’re replacing our space by expanding at the Madison Annex, and are excited to open a dynamic, consolidated educational facility that offers 2D and 3D classes in the same location for our school’s Fall Term 2012. Click here to learn more about the build-out and new facility. Construction will begin shortly and we need your help!


Be a “30-Something” for The Art League
& Help Us Raise Money for The Art League School Madison Annex Project
We need you to help us raise $210,000 to fund the build-out and move. We already have a significant 30-something commitment to this campaign from one of our loyal, longtime students. If every student, member, donor, instructor, volunteer, and patron donates $30, we’ll raise enough money to fund the whole project!

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
