Kids Club is part of an experimental exhibition that brings together one hundred artists for an extended exploration of collaboration in creation. This exhibition is organized by BAM/PFA Director of Engagement Aimee Chang.

More workshops and programs will continue throughout the year, check the Kids Club BAM page for the latest meet-ups.

Visit Kids Club to create a one-of-a-kind felt rug with fiber artist Ashley Helvey, play with one hundred pounds of clay and display your sculpture as part of an interactive artwork by Charles Long, climb into an art-viewing clubhouse designed by sculptor Jay Nelson, and get inspired by an ever-growing display of drawings and sculptures created by fellow visitors. Come explore and create in the Kids Club, a special gallery created dedicated to involving elementary-school-age children in creative work.
