Our mission is to provide inspiring, interactive experiences in which art is central to shaping young minds and enriching our community. Young At Art is a place where art has been woven into every hands-on experience and where artists have come together to provide inspiration for our children and ourselves.
Young At Art features four innovative Exhibition Galleries: ArtScapes, a thematic journey of art history where art crosses time, place and culture; CultureScapes, a celebration and understanding of our culturally diverse world through the eyes and art of contemporary artists from Africa, Latin America, Cuba, Asia and Native America; GreenScapes, encouraging children and adults to reconnect with nature by discovering the potential of art to call attention to environmental issues; and WonderScapes, a world of Alice in Wonderland imagery dedicated to childhood development through art, literacy and play. The museum’s Young At Art Institute features cutting edge equipment, studios and instruction in painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, photography and digital arts. The museum also includes a YAA Preschool using an arts-based curriculum to prepare young children for kindergarten; National Traveling Exhibition Gallery, Workshop Classrooms; Teen Center and Leadership Program for 500+ teens in grades 9-12; and offers Field Trip Experiences for students and teachers in grades PreK-8. Renowned Artists – painters, sculptors, animators, filmmakers, textile, graffiti, woodblock, multimedia, muralists, fiber, mosaic, composers, photographers and lighting/industrial – have infused their creative voice into YAA through installations, guest appearances and instruction in the YAA Institute. Artists include Leonel Matheu, Pablo Cano, Edouard Duval Carrie, Chisseko Kondowe, Kenichi Yokono, Pedro Zapeda, Tom Luckey, Rachael Elwell, Kenny Scharf, Jillian Mayer, DeLoss McGraw, Aleandro Romero, Taryn Boyd – plus the first interactive installation by world famous performance artists, STOMP.
Women of Vision, Friends of YAA
Young At Art Museum has been at the forefront of arts education in Broward County, population 1.8 million, since 1989. Our mission: to provide inspiring, interactive experiences in which art is central to shaping young minds and enriching our community. Our dedication to championing the arts as part of a complete education has resulted in extraordinary accomplishments including: Designation by County Commissioners as a Broward Major Cultural Institution; Inclusion in PNC’s Grow Up Great initiative for early childhood education with partners Family Central, South Florida Science Museum and Palm Beach State College and; Accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums, making Young At Art one of only 776 of the nation’s 17,500 museums recognized for excellence and leadership in the field. On May 5, 2012 Young At Art embarked upon a new stage in its history. Through a public/private partnership with Broward County, Young At Art opened a groundbreaking new 55,000 sq. ft., Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) museum and public library, named by the Knight Foundation “as one of the most transformative arts initiatives in South Florida.” The new YAA is a holistic approach to artistic learning where exhibit galleries, art studios and public library coalesce into a singular and enriching arts-based learning experience. It is a place where art has been woven into every hands-on experience and where artists have come together to provide inspiration for our children and ourselves.
