“…The Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling is a vivid example of what happens when arts, education and affordable housing come together in a planned and integrated fashion. The museum will serve as a cultural anchor for the community – a thriving space for children and families to share the pleasure of personal expression through art making and storytelling, all grounded in Sugar Hill’s rich history and culture.
We have set ourselves the challenge of changing the social and economic prospects for the community by positively engaging the children, adults and neighborhood institutions that are responsible for the community’s future. We know from our other integrated affordable housing sites that this model works, and our scaled-up ambitions for the Sugar Hill development are only outdistanced by the prospects for success.”
