“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
― Winston Churchill

This year the theme of the Zimmer’s show&tell exhibit is the “art of giving.”  For 9 years, a community of artists and humanitarians have been giving to show&tell. They give sculpture, paintings, photographs, mixed media masterpieces, and they give of themselves. These artists give generously and enthusiastically each year, donating art to benefit the Zimmer’s youth development program, youTHink.

The Zimmer Children’s Museum uses art and creativity to help young minds explore new ideas and develop their own. The Zimmer  empowers youth, through youTHink, to find their voice and make a positive impact on their communities. The Zimmer inspires young people to cultivate a social conscience and embrace their responsibility to help make the world a better place.

Every day in the Zimmer Children’s Museum, children give of their time, talent, and treasure. Through our youTHink lessons and leadership training, youth empower themselves to become active in the communal global issues that will shape their future.  At the Zimmer, we bring children and families from a diverse cultural community together for interactive purposeful play to explore shared values such as respect, compassion, rescue, tolerance and helping those in need- inspiring them with the power to give. This year’s theme of “the art of giving” allows our artists to explore and respond to the many ways we give to one another, through charity, volunteerism, support, advice, and love.
