The best way to ensure year-round access to arts education for children throughout New York City is to commit to monthly donations. Your commitment to CMA is a commitment to joy!
Making art is more than just a pleasant activity — art can play a role in developing a child’s confidence, awareness, and expression. Young artists learn to value their individuality and the identity that they express through their art. Collaborative art projects encourage children to develop their language and social skills, conflict resolution, and their sense of community. And making art as a family increases parent-child bonds and provides parents a change from the standard role of disciplinarian.
Yet arts activities are not a given for every family, and visits to museums such as ours can be a luxury.
Transform a life today!
Your gift allows CMA to offer free admission, class scholarships, and free public programming in the museum and off-site. We believe that every child should have access to high quality, hands-on art- making with trained teaching artists.
Your contribution also supports specialized programs that serve children with physical and developmental disabilities; families navigating the NYC child welfare system; and many, many more. We served 57,000 children and families through our Community Programs last year.

The Artistic Director’s Circle is a group of like-minded art lovers who commit to an annual donation of $1,000 in support of CMA’s programs. Members enjoy visits to artists' studios, meetups for art fairs and gallery openings, and visits to other collector's homes to view significant collections. Each year, the Executive Director and Curator arrange three to five special visits for Director's Circle members that provide privileged access that an individual might not otherwise have. Past visits have included the studios of Louise Bourgeois, Donald Judd, the JPMorgan Collection and the Hort Collection, and the studio of Andrew Zuckerman, amongst others. Additionally, CMA works on behalf of members to obtain VIP passes to NYC art fairs, including The Armory Show, Collective Design Fair, Frieze, Pulse, NADA, and more.
