  Art Students League of New York - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Art Students League of New York is an art school founded in 1875.
Its creation came in response to both an anticipated gap in the program of the National Academy of Design's program of classes for that year, and longer-term desires for more variety and flexibility in education for artists.
As of 2004, the League remains an important force in New York City art life.

 Yeachin Tsai
A desire to open to the rest of the world prompted her to move to New York City in 1993, where she enrolled at CUNY Brooklyn College and received a MFA in 1995.
Working constantly through new shapes and forms, Yeachin sees the world as an energy field with all kinds of patterns interacting with each other, where nothing is fixed, nothing ever stays in one place, and describes her body of work as one continuous dance, a dance of life, a dance of energy.
After moving to New York City, her new life brought her to switch from the rigid and austere form of Zen Buddhism to the more gregarious Tibetan Buddhism, which is much more down to earth.

The Art Students League of New York, founded in 1875, boasts an alumni list that is a veritable Who's Who in American art, from Winslow Homer and Georgia O'Keeffe to Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Louise Nevelson.
By the mid-1870s, however, artists and art students in New York increasingly realized that the Academy was no longer adequate to serve the needs of their growing profession.
Since there were no alternative means by which art students could engage in any formal course of study from live models, the students were particularly eager to deal with this dire situation before it was too late.

Perhaps the quality and the depth and the power of the universal river of feeling that is expressed in great painting and sculpture depends upon the level of candid and personal revelation that an artist is willing to expose.
Modernism in The Twentieth-Century ushered in through spiritual epiphany the means for artists to metaphorically transcend the materiality of existence and express through abstraction or any means necessary the urgency of their visions and the character of their insights.
New eyes saw new visions, new ears heard new songs, new tongues spoke new words.
