The New York Academy of Art was founded in 1982 by artists and collectors, including early trustees Andy Warhol and Tom Wolfe. The Academy’s MFA program promotes the development of an artist’s personal vision and the creation of vital contemporary art by building on the enduring traditions of figurative painting, drawing and sculpture. The Academy is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational and cultural institution.
