Children’s Museum of the Arts partners with New Art Dealers Alliance to present the second iteration of Our First Art Fair, an experiential exhibition of new artworks created, priced, and sold entirely by children, on view at NADA Miami. Central to CMA’s belief that all children are artists, and adults have as much to learn from them as they do from us, the exhibition aims to give young artists the agency to participate in the wider world of art at every level.

For the exhibition, kids around Miami-Dade County are invited via an open call to create their own masterpieces, drop off their artworks prior to the fair, set their price, and showcase their work at NADA Miami. Children will receive all proceeds from works sold at NADA; any artworks that are not sold will become part of CMA’s one-of-a-kind permanent collection of art made by children from around the globe.
