Early in our history, CMA put out a worldwide call to ask children for artwork. As a result, CMA now holds one of the largest collections of children’s artwork in the world. See it here.

In 2019, CMA celebrated 30 years of art-making. Now embracing the digital age, CMA proposed a second call for children to make art worldwide with CIVICKIDS, and to begin a dialogue by sharing their art online. Each month throughout the year, CMA issued a digital challenge to create a project based on themes of civic engagement including leadership, sustainability, and kindness.

Join us on Sunday, October 20, 2019, during general admission hours as we celebrate a year of CIVICKIDS! Along with our partner For Freedoms, we will present interactive workshops inspired by a year of amplifying children’s voices and catching them in action. Highlights include Story Time with Senator Julia Salazar, documentary screenings with filmmaker Pablo Herrera, a digital quilt with For Freedoms, and much more!
