The National Academy Museum & School is pleased to announce the opening of the 6th annual exhibition Creative Mischief.

Conceived and curated by Maurizio Pellegrin, National Academy School Dean, in 2012, Creative Mischief began as a one-day exhibition. It has evolved into a month-long exhibition featuring a diverse roster of National Academicians, faculty members, and emerging artists and students who are honing their talents at the Academy. Little Mischief, a week-long subset exhibition by children of the Young Artists program, will be on exhibit from May 18 to May 31.

Creative Mischief will debut over 100 works representing a broad spectrum of artistic disciplines: abstract and figurative painting, site-specific installation, sculpture, photography, prints, video, animation, and performance. Subjects range from enduring concepts of beauty, transformation, and truth to temporal issues of social injustice, and the political turmoil of today.

The exhibition will take place throughout the museum, a turn of the century Beaux-Arts townhouse, on Museum Mile, one of the few remaining mansions on 5th Avenue that is open to the public, and the Sonia Gechtoff Gallery in the School. Admission will be free.

“Creative Mischief is the National Academy’s largest, most diverse, and inclusive consortium of artistic voices who are making art at the Academy. Daring, playful, and poetic works by artists from dozens of countries around the globe will be on view to the public”, said Pellegrin. “Featured artists are profoundly committed to expressing the creative powers of their life force.

About the National Academy Founded in 1825, the National Academy is the only institution of its kind that integrates a museum, art school and association of artists and architects dedicated to creating and preserving a living history of American art and architecture.
