Enjoy these videos of East Harlem School students reading original poems inspired by works of art in the galleries! The East Harlem School is an independent middle school enrolling children from families with low income. The school’s mission is to challenge students to develop a balanced physical, moral, and intellectual strength that they will use to adapt to change.
This afternoon program for high school students promotes close looking and the free exchange of ideas. Forum members study great works of art from the permanent collection and special exhibitions on selected Friday afternoons between January and May. The program is free, but application is required.
Museum admission and gallery programs are free from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the first Friday evening of the month (except January and September). Visitors have access to the permanent collection and special exhibition galleries, and enjoy talks and lectures by museum educators and curators, as well as music and dance performances and open sketching in the Garden Court (complimentary materials provided by the Frick).
