The Boston Children’s Museum has a new permanent exhibit: You, Me, We.
Through the Museum’s playful learning activities, visitors will be encouraged to consider the many influences on identity development, including community, traditions, religion, food, culture, and belonging.
Thoughtful discussion prompts will invite visitors to reflect on their similarities and differences, and practice empathy and kindness toward one another. It is hoped that the exhibit will also lead visitors to consider the role of bias in determining how our differences are perceived, and how it can lead to racism and discrimination.
Ultimately, by supporting engagement and conversation between and amongst families, friends, and even visitor groups meeting for the first time, this exhibit encourages visitors to celebrate their own uniqueness and develop respect and empathy for others.
The mural paintings featured in the You, Me, We exhibit were created by Silvia López Chavez and Chanel Thervil. Boston Globe Media Partners is the exhibit Media Partner. Special thanks to the many community members and Boston Children’s Museum staff (past, present, and future) who contributed to this exhibit.
