One of the four permanent galleries at Young At Art Museum, STOMP is a creative fusion of art and music in a bodily kinesthetic space filled with unexpected, non-traditional objects such as corrugated metal panels, rolling shutters, street signs, wheel rims, dust bins, pipes, garbage cans and lids, bedsprings and buckets. STOMP’s interactive educational experience encourages children and their families to find music in the ordinary while engaging in hands-on artistic, historical, multicultural, environmental and social experiences.
Joining presenting sponsor the Hudson Family Foundation are additional sponsors including BankUnited, Craig Zinn Automotive, IKEA Sunrise, the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation, David and Jodi Epstein Family Foundation, the Leo Goodwin Foundation and GL Homes.
