Exhibition Description

The Wonder Room is an experimental gallery in the JPMorgan Chase Center for Creativity, designed as a place for intergenerational exploration, play, connection, and discovery. Art is displayed in unexpected ways, and custom, hands-on activities are featured prominently near great works of art to inspire creativity in this family-friendly space.

This iteration of the Wonder Room is the latest manifestation of CMA’s Center for Art and Social Engagement. It is an initiative that fosters nuanced consideration of complex social issues through engagement with art, artists, and one another. The space carefully considers the power of wonder and curiosity to see the world not as it is but as it could be.

The art, games, and participatory stations will take visitors on a journey filled with surprises, challenges, and new ways to connect to one another. What to expect? Shelter building, wildly weird materials for creation, and participatory methods for sharing and hearing stories. But, most importantly, this gallery empowers museum-goers to exercise their courageous imagination. A kind of imagination that builds confidence, trust, and hope.

The Center for Art and Social Engagement is supported through a Museums for America grant of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
