Kidzzcast produces regular monthly short documentaries from children, for children via a hybrid of online platforms and in-person broadcasts. Dedicated to the world of art from a young artist’s perspective, children interview artists, gallerists, curators, and other CMA creative friends; focusing on cultural events, art shows, and cultural institutions from a child’s point of view.

Our first project is Monumentary, in which children explore earthen works in the American Southwest and how they relate to monuments.

Part 1: Sustainable Design

Beginning at Rosekill performing arts park in the Hudson Valley to and continuing to Earthship Biotecture in Tres Piedras, New Mexico, students kicked off their documentary adventure by discussing the future of housing.
Part 2: What Replaces a Monument?

In conversation with scholar and Three Sisters Collective co-founder Dr. Christina M. Castro and art theorist and writer Lucy Lippard, students discussed the destruction — and perseverance — of monuments.
Part 3: Earth Art

Students paid a virtual visit to Utah to learn about two critically acclaimed examples of Land Art — Nancy Holt's Sun Tunnels and Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty.
