A dynamic new children’s museum under construction on W. 155th St. just won a blockbuster $350,000 arts grant to help design and build its exhibits.
The windfall brings national recognition to the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Arts & Storytelling — and a big boost to its fundraising that could attract other major donors.
Museum organizers will use the cash to train kids ages 3 to 8 in the magic of creating art, and inspire them with dazzling works by famed artists that showcase the grandeur of Harlem.
