The 2024 Student Art Festival, Eco vs Ego, explores our symbiotic relationship with nature. Inspired by guest thought-leader Edwina von Gal, the festival asks students, schoolteachers, and artists to delve into topics such as needs and survival, infrastructure, and growth; anthropomorphism and symbolism, and biophilia through the practices of art, design, horticulture, and performance.

Core to the festival is the Student Art Festival (SAF) In-School Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program. The program has engaged 20 artists working within 15 participating schools to create new works over two academic years, culminating in exhibitions and performances.

SAF AiRs & Participating Schools include Pamella Allen & Springs School; Keren Anavy & Amagansett School; Darlene Charneco & Bridgehampton School; Viv Corringham & Springs School; Andrea Cote & The Bridgehampton Childcare & Recreation Center; Lionel Cruet & the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council; Mare Dianora & Bridgehampton School; Denise Silva-Dennis & Pierson Middle-High School; Jeremy Dennis & East Hampton High School; Brianna Hernandez & East Hampton High School; Liz Joyce with Wainscott & Sagaponack Schools; Laurie Lambrecht and Westhampton Beach Elementary School; Brett Loving & Project Most; Anthony Madonna & John Marshall Elementary School; Cheryl Molnar & Shelter Island School; Jody Oberfelder & Our Fabulous Variety Show; Beau Bree Rhee & East Hampton High School; Steven Sergiovanni & the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council; Alexandra Talty & Bridgehampton School; Rosario Varela & East Hampton Middle School.
