Children’s Museum of the Arts partners with public art organization ArtBridge to present Moon Folk: Passages Toward Greater Understanding, a new mural by multimedia artist Tomashi Jackson located in Manhattan’s Hudson Square. The mural is accompanied by artistic responses to Tomashi’s work by NYC youth ages 3-12. The final exhibition is presented outside Google's new campus at St. John’s Terminal, located at 550 Washington Street, developed by Oxford Properties.
The exhibition is meant to suggest the possibility of outpourings of radiant and peace-filled communication, and to provoke discourse, documentation, and new designs on the subject of peace for and by children. The partnership between CMA and ArtBridge highlights the Museum’s continued commitment to inspiring global conversations and fostering meaningful ties between the children of New York and the greater artistic community.
The installation is produced by ArtBridge with support from Google and Oxford Properties. Made possible by City Canvas, an initiative of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs that transforms the city’s temporary protective structures into sites for the display of art driven by collaboration between local artists and communities.
Programs at Children’s Museum of the Arts are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
