Shifting the museum paradigm, the Young At Art Museum in Davie, Florida takes a sophisticated design approach to bridging the gap between an adult art museum and a children’s museum. The art museum for children features 22,000 SF of exhibit space designed by Architecture Is Fun, rich in branded environments, art installations and art-making opportunities.

The design of the environments is enhanced with layers of meaning and method. All throughout the museum, there is beauty and the development of aesthetic study:

  • A participatory design approach that began six years ago with a museum symposium questioning Euro-centric approaches concludes with the representation of 70 artists and creative disciplines, connecting art with making, seeing with critical thinking, art objects with art-making, with beauty and aesthetic study throughout.
  • Young artists at the museum engage in socially-transformative experiences and art-making grounded in the critique of art, architecture, design, history and culture.
  • Developed in a public/private partnership with Broward County, this art museum for children shares one responsible facility with a county library, connecting art and experience to literacy and story, while creating awareness of the built and natural environment.
  • An elegant and clever approach to enfolding experience, education, and exhibit equally, the innovative design forges thematic galleries where art-making, art installation and art-centric environments transform learning about art into using art for learning.
  • Four core galleries define learning through art: ArtScapes for discovering art’s histories and your place amongst its timeline, CultureScapes for understanding artful traditions and bridging cultures, NatureScapes for calling attention to nature’s fragility and for learning to living lightly on our earth, and WonderScapes for delighting in the joy of early learning.
  • Through hands-on experiences and acts of art-making, young artists engage in critical thinking, observation, and problem-solving, all of which nurture creativity, collaboration and innovation.
  • In addition to hosting educational and art-making galleries, the design delineates engaging public space that is adopted for a wide range of community, museum, and library use.
  • Simultaneously artful and art-filled, the design is motivation and map of a new sector of socially inventive museums – the art museum for children.
