Friends Seminary's unique history connects it to the art culture of New York City; the School has educated the children of renowned artists, many of whom live in the surrounding neighborhoods. A robust arts program has always been a part of a Friends education, and we continue to encourage parents in the creative community to apply for admission to the School. In our dedication to making Friends affordable for all families, proceeds from this sale will create Artists for Artists, a fund that will contribute specifically to financial aid packages for the children of practicing artists.
