Galleries for American Arts and Popular Culture

Planning for a permanent exhibition, related changing exhibition space, programming, and educational resources about the ways that American popular culture has influenced and has been influenced by the public.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis proposes to plan a new family learning initiative focusing on American popular culture—the Galleries for American Arts and Popular Culture. The goal of the Galleries will be to help intergenerational families understand the role of popular culture in their own lives by examining questions about its origins, reasons for popularity, and effects on society’s values and behaviors. In consultation with humanities scholars, the Museum will refine humanities themes for a permanent introductory exhibit space on popular culture, as well as a changing exhibit space for a more in-depth exploration. Content and artifact selection will be developed and tested to prompt families to examine and discuss popular culture together.
