CMA & Schools

Pop-Up Museum Project

CMA launched a series of three Pop-Up Museum exhibitions that were supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The goal of the Pop-Up Museum Series was to broaden exposure and access to the arts by sharing the diversity of CMA’s permanent collection of children’s artwork with the NYC community through a traveling collection of children’s artwork along with art-making workshops. Exhibitions of the Pop-Up Museum celebrated the cultural diversity of CMA’s collection dating back 80 years with art from over 50 countries that showcase a range of historical subjects, mediums and narratives. We invite you to explore each of these projects and download a corresponding curriculum guide that can be used at home or in the classroom. The guide contains images and sample project activities to help the children in your life explore CMA’s collection of children’s artwork in these three focus areas.

This project was made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) MA-04-12-0074.
