CIVICKIDS: Make Art. Make A Difference is a year-long series of exhibitions, community events, and digital art calls hosted by Children's Museum of the Arts in New York City. 

Consider the items you use every day that are often thrown out—a water bottle, a tin can, and old toys. How can you breathe new life into these items, allowing something to grow inside? After choosing your vessel, design your own planter and find out. As your plants grow, find out how easy it is to commit to the environment at home!

Rooted in the belief that art builds empathy, understanding, and respect for others, CIVICKIDS aims to foster civic engagement and shared community pride through art making. Each month, CMA will issue a digital art making challenge based on themes of civic engagement including environmentalism, identity, equity, leadership, sustainability and kindness.

Culture Pass is supported by generous funding from The New York Community Trust, Charles H. Revson Foundation, Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
