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.


Call & Response: A Retrospective Exhibition
September 2017-August 2018

In this retrospective exhibition are selected works from the MINI ART MUSEUM’s permanent collection. 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. By visiting the museum, you are called to join the conversation. What will be your response?
