Children’s Museum of the Arts unites children and artists to create and share ambitious works of art with their communities and the world.
Born out of an artist’s SoHo studio in 1988, Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) has built a living collection of over 2,000 works by children from over fifty countries dating back nearly a century, while connecting young New Yorkers to art and artists. In 2021, CMA Executive Director Seth Cameron established The Look Make Show, the first digital commons specifically designed for child-artist-centered learning.
Children’s Museum of the Arts serves 135,000 visitors each year in a wide variety of programs. Learn more about our audience and programs!Read more
