Children’s Museum of the Arts Presents: LITTLE ARTISTS — an exhibition by Justin Teodoro

  • 3:01 am - 12:59 pm | Tuesday August 23, 2022
  • Gallery | Ace Hotel Brooklyn

Children’s Museum of the Arts is pleased to present selected works from its Permanent Collection curated by artist, illustrator, and designer Justin Teodoro in the Gallery at Ace Hotel Brooklyn. The installation will be on view to the public July 7 – September 29.

“I’ve always been struck by Keith Haring’s famous quote, “Children know something that most people have forgotten,” said Teodoro. When Children’s Museum of the Arts approached me about this special opportunity I knew I wanted to tap into that free spirit that’s present in each and every work in their permanent collection of over 2,000 artworks created by children over the last century.” 

The presentation will include an intimate selection of artworks that aspires to encourage the public to rediscover their love and joy in making art without judgment. To celebrate the opening of the installation, CMA and Ace Hotel Brooklyn will be hosting a cocktail reception on July 7th from 6-8 pm  



Justin Teodoro is an NYC-based artist and illustrator with an illustrious career who has collaborated with such brands as Hugo Boss, Nespresso, MAC Cosmetics, ESPN and Shiseido. He sees his style as a visual diary, merging art, fashion and meaning. Teodoro has a long history of supporting access to the arts and LGBTQ+ youth.

In 2021 CMA’s Executive Director Seth Cameron established The Look Make Show, the first digital commons specifically designed for child-artist-centered learning.
