Located in the Heart of Downtown New York, NYU Steinhardt's Department of Art and Art Professions is shaped by the intensity and innovation of the international art world. A home for artists, who are celebrated for their dedication, creativity, and skill in exploring unconventional ideas, New York City has long been a place where art truly matters.
The cityâ€™s galleries, museums, schools, studios and performance spaces, from Chelsea to Brooklyn and the Lower East Side, are an integral part of our department, as are the universityâ€™s vast intellectual and academic resources. New York University is one of the nationâ€™s leading research universities, with 48,000 students enrolled in 14 colleges, schools, and divisions. NYU is ideally situated to bring together the worldâ€™s most accomplished artists, performers, and musicians, with computer programmers, scientists, theorists, and philosophers to explore the frontiers of creative practice.
