Event Information

The Children’s Museum of the Arts is proud to present the exhibition Make Art (In) Public, a survey of art in the public realm. As the inaugural show in CMA’s new, larger facility on Charlton Street, Make Art (In) Public speaks to qualities with which CMA closely identifies: the accessibility of the arts; being a product of and a contributor to the cultural fabric of New York City; and the impact of the arts on building and bettering communities. At this pivotal moment in the museum’s history, we can think of no better art form to honor in our new space and new gallery. Make Art (In) Public presents a survey of artists past and present whose work collectively demonstrates a variety of methods artists employ to stage their art in the public realm. Participating artists include Keith Haring, Swoon, Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Remed, Tranqui Yanqui and Moondog. Going above and beyond the call of duty to make art more accessible to the public, these artists affect positive change within the communities they work. They further the dialogue between artist and audience and through the immensity of their vision and talent they inspire new generations of artists to turn their dreams into reality. Through this exhibition, museum visitors will engage with ideas about how the arts can bring communities together, foster dialogue, and contribute to the beauty of daily life, as well as the ways in which early public artists continue to inform the efforts of contemporary artists.
