The mission of the Children’s Museum of the Arts NY is to introduce children and their families to the transformative power of the arts by providing opportunities to make art side-by-side with working artists.
CIVICKIDS: Make Art. Make A Difference. is a year-long series of exhibitions, community events, and digital art calls hosted by Children's Museum of the Arts in New York City. Rooted in the belief that art builds empathy, understanding, and respect for others, CIVICKIDS aims to foster civic engagement and shared community pride through art making.
Each month, CMA will issue a digital art-making challenge based on themes of civic engagement including environmentalism, identity, equity, leadership, sustainability, kindness, and freedom.
Partnering institutions are invited to share photos of their audiences completing the digital challenge with #CMACIVICKIDS. The photos will be added to our online exhibition at cmany.org/civickids. We are excited to partner with institutions all across the world and share art with children and their families globally.To partner, reach out to Johanne Swanson at email@example.com!
