ART in Times Square
Peacetime: Workshops with the Children's Museum of the Arts and Tomashi Jackson
Presented by T-Mobile
Sundays at 11am | July 10, 17, 24, 31
Broadway Plaza between 45th and 46th Streets
Art with heart takes over Times Square on Sunday mornings with a new series of free public programs for children and families with artist Tomashi Jackson and Children's Museum of the Arts. Participants of all ages are encouraged to draw and talk with their neighbors, promoting deeper listening and creative connection.
In a culminating short film produced by Andrew Zuckerman of The Slowdown, thought leaders and children alike will reflect on the collective art project and their visualizations of peace through themes of sports, environmentalism, biodiversity, public art, and poetry.
Thanks to the supporters who make TSQ LIVE possible.
About Children’s Museum of the Arts
Children’s Museum of the Arts unites children and artists to create and share ambitious works of art with their communities and the world. Born out of an artist’s SoHo studio in 1988, Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) has built a living collection of over 2,000 works by children from over fifty countries dating back nearly a century, while connecting young New Yorkers to art and artists. In 2021, CMA Executive Director Seth Cameron established The Look Make Show, the first digital commons specifically designed for child-artist-centered learning. https://cmany.org
