Project led by artist Bea Schlingelhoff, ABACA staff


For the third year, apexart partners with at risk high school students from Satellite Academy to present a group exhibition of contemporary artists. The student curators organize all aspects of the project including developing interpretations of artists' works, writing publicity materials, and developing the exhibition theme.

Satellite Academy is an alternative public high school created to help young people who have not been successful in traditional NYC public high schools, or are returning to study after a long absence. Founded in 1979, the school is comprised of 200 students, approximately 60% of them are African American and 40% Latino and works with disenfranchised students from all five boroughs. ABACA (Arts Benefit All Coalition) works directly with Satellite Academy's young adults, exposing them to the significant art resources and the cultural environment of NYC, a new experience for them. ABACA provides the students with the experience and tools to have a significant interaction with this unfamiliar universe by having experienced artists as educators, bringing professional art experts to the school, and partnering with well known art institutions.
