Young at Art

July 27, 2012

I haven’t had the time to work on my own art in the last couple of weeks, but I have had the chance to experience it.  Recently, I traveled to South Florida for work and was treated to a trip to Young at Art.  This organization is full of inspiration for creatives – young and well, older.

IKEA Sunrise has partnered with the very contemporary organization, furnishing their office spaces, classrooms, and lounge areas.  Of course I’m partial, but it really is a perfect pairing for The Life Improvement Store.  Just like at IKEA, visitors are meant to experience the displays and interact with the rooms.

The museum is unique in that it shares space with the public library, but it didn’t have that “talk at a whisper” vibe.  In addition to displaying artwork, it exposes children to it through summer camps.  One little girl was throwing a pot for the first time, learning how to get started with the ceramics wheel.  Preparing for an upcoming show, another little girl proudly showed us a batik fabric that she had created.  Still others were mesmerized by their animation lesson.

When the day was done, it took several calls for the children to line up for their rides.  They didn’t want to leave, and I really couldn’t blame them.  The place was amazing!

There were many other areas to the museum – including a room dedicated to marionette puppets, a sound-proof STOMP room for the practice of percussion, and a dedication to cultural art studies.  Here are some more pictures from around Young at Art. (Excuse the quality.  I was taking pictures with my phone.)
