The Morean Arts Center (MAC) has joined Museums for All, a signature access program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the Association of Children’s Museums, to encourage people of all backgrounds to build a lifelong affinity to the arts and culture.
The program will enable low-income families to visit the Chihuly Collection, presented by MAC, for a minimal admission rate of $3 per person when they present an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, or a Women, Infant and Children (WIC) benefit card.
And, all children younger than age 5 are free.
Admission includes the Morean Glass Studio, and non-ticketed exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center and Morean Center for Clay, all for one minimal fee.
Partnering with the Juvenile Welfare Board on this initiative, MAC wants to ensure that families who can benefit from the program know about it and have ways to actively engage.
The Morean also offers two free weekly programs for families — ‘Saturdays at the Morean’ and ‘Sundays at the Morean’ — as well as non-ticketed exhibitions year-round.
Museums for All provides access to museums and encourages families of all backgrounds to visit regularly.
By offering this resource and teaming up with the Juvenile Welfare Board, MAC hopes to inspire creativity and a love for the arts, for all.
The Morean Arts Center is at 719 Central Ave, in St. Petersburg. For information and events, visit MoreansArtsCenter.org.
