Founded in 1875 by students breaking away from the National Academy of Design, The Art Students League Of New York has been instrumental in shaping America’s legacy in the fine arts. Located on 57th Street in Midtown, Manhattan, the organization teaches more than 2,500 students of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels each month. Learn more about it in this short episode of CBS New York's excellent The Dig series with host Elle McLogan.
"Art Students League is the most important art academy in the world for the last 150 years, roughly," executive director Michael Rips told CBS2's Elle McLogan.
