We believe there is a vital need for public spaces to showcase local artists. Presenting the artwork of children is one way to encourage them to value and participate in the visual arts. The Community Gallery is where stories that live within our community are shared with our visitors, using artistic expression as the communication tool.

Each month, a different project is featured in our Community Gallery on the second floor of the Museum.

What You Learn in the Community Gallery:

  • Expression of emotions, beauty and beliefs
  • Creativity
  • Individuality
  • Perspectives

Continue the Fun at Home

Make your own community gallery on a wall of your home or on the refrigerator door, inviting friends and family to express their ideas through art.

Choose a theme: color, lines, texture, backgrounds, subject matter, technique. Then work with your child to curate their year. Choose five or six pieces to display.

New to the world of art? We have plenty of techniques for talking to your kids about art.
