Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) is pleased to announce it has been approved by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to receive a Grants for Arts Projects award of $45,000 to support the Residency for Experimental Arts Education. This grant is one of 1,251 Grants for Arts Projects awards totaling nearly $28.8 million that were announced by the NEA as part of its first round of fiscal year 2023 grants.
“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support arts projects in communities nationwide,” said NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson, PhD. “Projects such as this one with Children’s Museum of the Arts strengthen arts and cultural ecosystems, provide equitable opportunities for arts participation and practice, and contribute to the health of our communities and our economy.”
Built out of Children’s Museum of the Arts’ 34 years of service to the community, the Residency for Experimental Arts Education invites individuals to reflect on the efficacy of arts education today while designing & implementing alternative futures through studio intensives, community-based programs, and online exposure. The 2022-2023 Artists-in-Residence are Miguel Braceli, Ingrid Romero, and Clare Kambhu.
