CMA Stories

Visit Us for One More Week at the Union Square Holiday Market!

It’s our last week at the Union Square Holiday Market presented by Citi, and what a wonderful season we’ve had out in our community! Join us this week to make snowy skyscrapers, winter trees, and bundled up city dwellers in Collaborative Winter Cityscapes until December 24.

Our booth this year was outfitted in an art nouveau-inspired cathedral imagined by CMA Teaching Artist Hayley McCulloch. We kicked off mid-November with a lantern-making project using cardboard and tissue paper to add more magic to our space.

Our December CIVICKIDS project inspired us to create a giant social spinner to put in the booth. 

Check out more photos on our Flickr page! Share your creations and follow along with #CMACIVICKIDS!


Thanks to the generous support of Citi and Urbanspace!
