Children's Art Museum - Present and Future  

 

Our permanent collection contains drawings, paintings, and collages by artists ages 4-18 from USA and other countries, dating back to 1990's. At the moment we are a "traveling museum" without permanent premises. We actively seek and find opportunities to exhibit parts of our collection at local venues to promote children's art and enhance wellbeing of those who see it.
 

Art for Your Walls

 
We can bring vibrant and uplifting children's art to a bank, a coffee shop or a hospital. Our exhibits can be organized by a theme, for example, Fairy Tales, Magical Creatures, Cats&Dogs, Horses. Contact us if you own or manage a business in the Eugene/Springfield area and you are interested in hosting our exhibit.

 

Digital Art Gallery

 
One of the Museum's major projects is digitizing the art collection, which is ongoing. This is a tedious and time consuming process as we have hundrends of art-works stored in several locations in Oregon. New images are continually added to the Gallery pages.

 

Capital Campaign for Museum & Center Building           

 

The goal of the capital campaign is to collect the funds necessary to acquire a building in the Eugene/Springfield area in Oregon that can house art collection of the Children's Art Museum as well as serve as a public Multicultural Education Center.


Pleas step forward and join our Advisory Committee to work on the strategic plan to bring about this goal.
 

Your donations on this page go directly to our Pacific Continental bank account dedicated to this campaign.

Why We Are Doing It

 

After many years teaching visual arts to children and participating in national and international events, we have accumulated a world-class collection of amazing art created by artists ages 4 to 18. The breadth and depth of these works defy any notion of children's art being in any way less than "the real thing". Art collectors around the world, as well as psychologists and educators, have come to recognize the importance and appreciate the fine artistic qualities of children's creations. We have exhibited parts of our collection at various temporary locations, but we are convinced that this art and the viewing public deserve more. Our desire is to share masterpieces in our collection with local audience, and to bring in international art exhibits. We would like to give Eugene a permanent museum of children's art that will grow and become the focal point of a variety of artictic and educational activities in the city. It will be the first children's art museum in Oregon, one of very few in the country. The museum will compliment the rich cultural scene of Eugene, at the same time widening its cosmopolitan qualitty with multicultural art exhibits and exchanges.

Our Vision

 

We would like to buy a building in the Eugene/Springfield area that can serve as home to:
  • Children's Art Museum
  • Children's Art Studio
  • Multicultural Education Center
 
The Museum will house a permanent collection of children's art from Oregon and from around the world. It will also provide exhibit spaces for the on-going events and contests.
 
Art studio will provide visual art classes for children ages 4 to 18.
 
The Center will support multilingual theater and language arts projects run by our organization. It will also function as a community center open to other educational and cultural programs. It will be an inviting place where budding non-profits and established organizations may try out their ideas.
