Did you know that the building that houses the Children’s Museum of the Arts was once an industrial loading dock? For this project, young artists will be encouraged to look closely at the facade of 180 E 88th Street as they use up-cycled materials and art supplies to create a fabulous building facade from their imagination! Will you create a cast-iron model, or a contemporary stucco masterpiece? Museum guests will have the option of sketching out their fantasy floor plans or jumping right into building their facades.
