For over 10 years, MoMA’s Community Partnership Program has worked with organizations across a variety of fields in order to make the Museum as accessible as possible for all members of New York City’s population, regardless of educational, economic, or other logistical constraints. Representing a wide range of creative experiences, communities, and artistic points of view, this exhibition gathers a selection of artworks created over the past two years of the program.

MoMA’s 2016–17 Community Partners are The Ali Forney Center, Artistic Noise, Bronx-Lebanon Highbridge Woodycrest Center, The Children’s Village, Cool Culture, The Family Center, The Fortune Society, Friends of Island Academy, Girls Educational & Mentoring Services, Harlem Center for Education, Housing Works, International Rescue Committee, LaGuardia Community College, Lantern Community Services, Literacy Partners, Local Project, Midtown Community Court, National Domestic Workers Alliance, New York Restoration Project, Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation, Passages Academy, Project Luz, Project Reach Youth, Queens Adult Learning Center, and Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE).

Education at MoMA is made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America.

Community Programs are made possible by the Werner and Elaine Dannheisser Fund for Older Adults, The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, Inc., and The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art. Generous support is provided by the Elroy and Terry Krumholz Foundation and by the Merrill G. and Emita E. Hastings Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Annual Education Fund.
