Arts education was essentially eliminated in New York City public schools amidst the financial crisis in the 1970s. But on Monday, a handful of lucky youngsters will not only have art class, but a very special instructor, too: Jeff Koons. It’s part of the inaugural Visual Arts Appreciation Week, a project of the thirty-five-year-old non-profit Studio in a School. The organization, which was founded by philanthropist and MoMA President Emerita Agnes Gund, partners with area artists and teachers to bring art to public schools in all five boroughs. Koons, along with Fred Wilson, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Claudia Demonte, will participate in the initiative, held exclusively at New York City Title I classrooms (which have the greatest percentage of students from low-income households). For a sector of schools that has had next to zero art resources in the past, this is a special, and sadly anomalous, occasion.
