The People’s Studio is an experimental space where visitors can explore the art and ideas of our time through participatory programs. Open during regular MoMA hours, the People’s Studio encourages visitors to experiment with artists’ materials and strategies, and weekly conversations and workshops place visitors in direct contact with artists, educators, and other creative thinkers.

Beginning in October 2019, the People’s Studio occupies the Paula and James Crown Creativity Lab, a permanent space on the second floor of the Museum. Driven by an annual theme, programs connect art on view with visitors’ life experiences. Each year, artists and collaborators from diverse fields are invited to take part in the Catalyst Program as part of the People's Studio, partnering with Museum educators on innovative projects intended to expand the Museum’s public function.

Volkswagen of America is proud to be MoMA’s lead partner of education.
