“When you arise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love”. – Marcus Aurelius
The New Children’s Museum is an arts-based children’s museum focused on early learning through exposure to art and play. The Museum incorporates research from developmental psychology, early childhood learning, brain development, arts education, play and the visual arts to build impactful programming that provide joy and wonder while also developing critical 21st century skills.
Cami Rosso, wife of the Museum’s board chair, is co-chairing this year’s gala. All proceeds from the “Studio 200 on Island” Gala, will go toward funding the Museum’s many access programs, which enable them to bring over 25% of their annual visitors to the Museum for free or very little cost because the Museum believes that all children should have access to art and the creative process.”
