Urban Arts Subway Car Design Competition (2016) - at High School of Art & Design in NYC
The Urban Arts Subway Car Design Competition and Exhibition is a program at the High School of Art & Design in Manhattan. Organized by the Alumni Association, this program invites all students at the school to submit their designs on our Training Pages. Those designs are judged and the top picks are awarded with All City Style trains to paint and/or sculpt, following the designs they submitted on paper. The day the student winners receive their blank ACS trains to work on, they participate in a workshop where various graffiti artists mentor the students as they begin to work on their trains. The school then hosts an exhibit of the trains, coupled with a panel discussion and silent auction of alumni-painted trains. After the panel discussion, student winners are announced out of those 20 trains in the show. This year, each student winner received prizes like graffiti-related art books and documentaries.

This program is significant for All City Style because Klim Kozinevich came up with the idea of the All City Style train while he was a student at the High School of Art & Design. The Art & Design Urban Arts event brings the All City Style train back around full circle to the exact place where it began.
