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!


The MINI ART MUSEUM fine arts experience at your school, event or location includes:

  • installation of the MINI ART MUSEUM
  • docent-led tour of the MINI ART MUSEUM
  • magnifying glasses and gallery guides for visitors to view artwork
  • art-making workshop inspired by the exhibition(s)
  • mini gift shop with items on sale between $1-$5 to benefit museum operations (optional)

The MINI ART MUSEUM curriculum, for grades 1-12, help meet the Perception, Creative Expression/Performance, Historical/Cultural Heritage & Critical Evaluation TEKS for Art; Levels K-12. This curriculum can be adapted for use in other content areas to enhance and improve critical, divergent and analytical thinking.

After four years, eleven exhibitions, and thousands of visitors worldwide, the MINI ART MUSEUM continues to serves as a platform for artists and curators to activate dialogue about topics they value.

We love to keep you updated with the careers of our Mini Art Museum artists so periodically we'll spotlight them. Here's an article about #MAMartist Lisette Chavez and #MAMartist Audrya Flores. AND Lady Base Gallery collaborated with us on an exhibition plus its founder, Sarah Castillo, is a #MAMartist, too!

"The resulting installation, Angel Baby, is a room the viewer enters, bathed in red light, with a bed in the center. A video projection follows the dramatic story of the Camaroncito to its startling conclusion. Shown first at Lady Base Gallery in San Antonio, the work was included in Dean Daderko’s exhibition Right Here Right Now: San Antonio at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston in 2018. It was a major moment for the two artists who were collaborating and making video for the first time," Arts and Culture Texas.
