By raising $10,000, we will be able to create warm, positive, identity affirming school spaces with a student-made art installations at each of our 8 schools. We will also install custom murals at each campus, illustrating the joy, power, resilience, ingenuity, achievements, and activism of Black and Brown culture. With many changes happening in our buildings to ensure COVID-19 safety, these art installations will helps us create spaces that still prioritize having warm, welcoming, identity-affirming imagery.
More on our Children's Museum of Art and Social Justice : The mission of the museum is to offer a space for the voices of KIPP Chicago students to be heard and to infuse a social justice curriculum into the arts at our eight schools. Our students range in age from 5-14 and the museum offers a space to showcase and celebrate their artistic explorations of social justice themes, inspiring action toward social change.
Our art exhibits are the result of students engaging in topics such as: the effects of gun violence, geopolitics and physical borders, the forgotten history of the origins of indigo dye, architecture and urban planning, water access and rights, the aesthetic theories and philosophies of Afrofuturism, activism, food justice, and more.
We are so grateful for any amount you are able to give to help us install these important and relevant art exhibits at all of our schools.
