Our Children’s Museum of Art and Social Justice (CMASJ) is a critical piece of the arts programming at KIPP Chicago.

Donate Today

The museum offers a meaningful curriculum for our visual arts teachers and provides a space for students, families, staff, and the larger Chicago community to engage in critical discourse around topics of social justice.

By partnering with CMASJ and KIPP Chicago, individuals like you are making a difference in the changing the lives of Chicago’s hardest working students, proving what is possible in public education, and setting an example for thousands more.

How to book a group tour

A one hour tour includes a conversation around each art exhibit, short video, and an activist button making activity. We are a small, one room museum inside the KIPP Chicago regional office so we can only accommodate groups of 25 people or fewer. Students in grades K-12 welcome! Email jvillalpando@kippchicago.org to schedule a tour.
