Children's Museum of the Arts
New York, United States

Founded in Lower Manhattan in 1988, Children’s Museum of the Arts’ unique curatorial program introduces children and families to world-class contemporary art exhibitions and art-making workshops taught by professional artists. The central Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery displays a rotating series of contemporary artwork by emerging and established artists from New York City and around the world. In addition, CMA’s dual-level Bridge hosts a rotating series of interactive site-specific installations that are thematically linked to the main exhibition in the gallery.

CMA’s programming consists of four distinct initiatives: thematic exhibitions of artwork by contemporary artists; on-site public programming, studio workshops, and art classes taught by professional working artists; school and community outreach programs that provide free art education to underserved children throughout New York City; and a permanent collection of over 2,000 pieces of children’s art from around the world.
