Salida Children’s PopUp Museum at ArtWalk 2017!  Thank you for participating in 2017’s ArtWalk Children’s PopUp-a museum-like experience for children, families, and art lovers.  Our exhibit featured images from The Metropolitan Museum of Art and other classic collections,  hands-on art activities, mini galleries- a different theme in each room, and creative resources for families such as museum guides, and multicultural books. Thank you for visiting! This program was offered FREE to the community thanks to the City of Salida community funding program, Salida Soup contributors, & Sellars Project Space.
