Children’s Museum of the Arts unites children and artists to create and share ambitious works of art with their communities and the world.
Born out of an artist’s SoHo studio in 1988, Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) has built a living collection of over 2,000 works by children from over fifty countries dating back nearly a century, while connecting young New Yorkers to art and artists.
Through our Artist-Educator Residency at home, our Teaching Artist Residency in New York City schools, and the Look Make Show online, CMA has championed access to arts education for over 34 years and continues to innovate.
Your support aids in the creative, intellectual, and emotional growth of children when they need it most.
Children’s Museum of the Arts’ Corporate Circle is an exclusive patron group designed for corporate entities wishing to associate their brand with cultural, educational, and philanthropic goals.
The Director’s Circle is an elite group of art lovers whose patronage provides backstage entry to the greatest cultural organizations, private collections, exclusive receptions, and VIP art fair passes.
The Contemporaries are the junior committee of the Children’s Museum of the Arts. This group of young professionals, ages 21-40, commit to volunteering their time, talents, and energy to promote the museum’s mission and to raise crucial funds for the museum’s free Community Programs.
