Highlights

Ed Ruscha | "Golden Gardens"
Available for Purchase via @artsy on October 23
πŸ πŸ› 
β€œI knew I wanted to be some kind of artist from about 12. I met a neighbor who drew cartoons, and I had an idea I wanted to be a cartoonist."
β€” #EdRuscha
πŸ πŸ› 
Ruscha's work defies boundaries across all media, often using the daily overlooked places and objects in #LosAngeles, where he resides, as a guide. Ruscha has often discussed how he is inspired by the visual culture in the United States, highlighting how we can all see and create works of art our from our everyday environments.
πŸ πŸ› 
CMA is dedicated to exposing young people to new art forms and encouraging them to see creative possibility all around them, regardless of their age, previous exposure to art, or anything else that might stand in the way. We are honored to have Ruscha’s work donated to our Art Auction and Gala to support art education for all children in NYC! #SupportCMA

"My hope is that children will become aware of this invisible ceiling and also see how I constructed it, so that they can imagine disassembling it and removing it piece by piece. The tension is held in place with interlocking eye and hook hardware components that can be detached by hand."

It's the final month to view E.V. Day's Breaking the Glass Ceiling exhibition! Head to our blog to read E.V.'s thoughts on honoring her feminist heroes, how children can dismantle the glass ceiling, and the challenges and rewards of shattering glass in her studio.

Founded in 2016 by artists @hankwillisthomas and @ericgottesman, @forfreedoms is a platform for creative civic engagement, discourse, and direct action. As part of For Freedoms' #50StateInitiative, CMA hosted a kid-led Town Hall last October that addressed how children can leverage the power of art to allow their voices to be heard.

While our #CMACIVICKIDS campaign is coming to an end, the values it stands for have always been and always will remain central to our programming. Just like our 2019 Gala honoree #ForFreedoms, we believe in art’s ability to change lives, one person or community at a time. This is why our Community Programs provide free arts education to vulnerable families throughout New York City. Our annual Gala is one of the biggest sources of revenue to keep these important programs running!
