The Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling is always looking for new talents! We review proposals for performances, programs and exhibitions on an ongoing basis. Due to the overwhelming number of applications we receive, we can only contact applicants whose programs match our needs. Please contact Cinzia Meneghello at email@example.com if you have any questions.
The Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling is a contemporary art museum for children rooted in principles of social justice. We strive to strengthen our culturally rich neighborhood with a space where children and their families grow and learn about Sugar Hill, and the world at large, through dialogue with artists, art and storytelling. Designed by internationally acclaimed architect David Adjaye, the Museum opened in October of 2015 as the cultural capstone of the Sugar Hill Project, a multi-use building developed by Broadway Housing Communities (BHC) which includes permanent affordable housing for individuals and families, and the Sugar Hill Museum Preschool.
We curate programs that aim to provide children with a meaningful, interactive and fun art experience. Our target audience is three- to eight-year-old children and their families. Grounded in our curatorial mission to share stories through theater, music, dance and visual art, as well as oral and literary forms, our programs include tales, fables, histories, and myths that genuinely reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural milieu of our surroundings and also leverage the Museum's own art exhibitions to foster richer engagement with, and a deeper understanding of, public art already on view.
