Tour of the New Children's Museum


The New Children’s Museum is a dynamic new model of a museum that provides inventive and engaging art experiences that are meaningful to children and families — stimulating imagination, inquisitiveness and innovative thinking by exhibiting participatory works of art by contemporary artists and providing a venue for art making and play. NCM brings families together in a rich educational environment that fosters creativity — blending elements of art museum, children’s museum, and community center. Designed by award-winning architect Rob Wellington Quigley, the 50,000-square-foot facility is one of the first green museums in California

Guests will enjoy a tour of the museum-wide exhibition, Trash, which features the work of 12 artists, with Lauren Popp (Assistant Curator of Exhibitions); participate in a hands-on art project; and learn how NCM has leveraged web and social media-based technology for its Say You Will… Campaign from Gavon Morris (Senior Manager of Marketing & Communications).
