Spare Parts founded the MINI ART MUSEUM (MAM) to bring the fine arts museum experience to schools and the community. This opportunity for schools seeks to eliminate bus fees & complicated scheduling & simply brings the fine art museum experience to classrooms and events, like yours!

  • magnifying glasses and gallery guides for visitors to view artwork
