Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling
The cultural capstone of BHC’s Sugar Hill Project, the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling brings remarkable access to the arts to children and families in a neighborhood that has suffered years of neglect despite an important history as the home of the Harlem Renaissance.
The museum’s natural light-filled galleries and gathering spaces are an inspiring environment where children and families can celebrate, create and share a world of art and stories.
Since opening to the public in the fall of 2015, the Museum has welcomed more than 7,000 visitors with intergenerational exhibition and education programs designed to support the cognitive and creative development of children ages 3-8.
In the 17,000sf David Adjaye-designed Museum, three exhibition galleries, art and storytelling programs, regular opportunities to engage with working artists, and well-equipped art making facilities create pathways for learning. A curriculum for young children developed in close collaboration with the onsite Sugar Hill Museum Preschool brings students from neighborhood schools to the Museum on a weekly basis for intensive, hands-on experiences working with art and artists.
