Borough President's office events in July and August

Opening July 5 in the Maggi Peyton Gallery: The Art Students League annual show.

The venerable Art Students League of New York, a Manhattan stalwart for over 130 years, has been known for its broad appeal to both amateur and professional artists—with a tradition of offering reason¬ably priced classes on a flexible schedule to accommodate students from all walks of life. On view in my office’s Maggi Peyton Gallery this July and August is their annual group show of student paintings and drawings; this year’s theme is “Waterfront.”
