YOUNG AT ART | MUSEUM BROWARD COUNTY LIBRARY
FORT LAUDERDALE – May 1, 2012 – Glavovic Studio is proud to announce the grand opening of the new Young at Art | Museum Broward County Library taking place this Saturday, May 5th, 2012.
The new 55,000 square-foot museum and library, designed by Glavovic Studio (design architect) and AECOM (architect of record), is located in Davie, South Florida and will be the first GOLD LEED-certified museum in Broward County, Florida. The project, initially envisioned in 2001, aims to provide a regional and national model for children oriented learning environments where the architecture takes careful consideration of the relationship of space to the child and the child’s experience.
Aiming at becoming the epicenter of cultural arts education for children and families in Broward County, the new museum includes four major exhibit areas in addition to an Art Institute with art studios for 2D visual arts, ceramics, 3D graphics and photography. Also included is a 10,000 square-foot children’s, adult and teen library, a reading room, a teen center, café, YAA store and conference areas. Throughout the building the Architecture is legible and through this demonstrates the mission of creativity and sustainability. Structural, mechanical and infrastructural and other systems are exposed throughout the building in a visually appealing way to enhance the space while offering opportunities to extend one’s imagination and learn about the green building practices employed. Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place at 9am, followed by the grand opening for general audience at 12pm. Address: 751 SW 121 Avenue, Davie, Florida 33325.

Young at Art | Museum and Broward County Library is a project made possible through the partnership of Young at Art, a leading not-for-profit children’s art museum, and the Broward County Libraries Division.
The new Young At Art Children's Museum and Library Complex focuses on arts and learning in Broward County and South Florida.
Located at 751 SW 121 Ave, Davie, FL.
Through an extraordinary public/private partnership with Broward County, Young At Art Museum is proud to present its new 55,000 square-foot, Gold LEED-certified permanent facility. The new YAA is a project of social inventiveness for families. The new museum has been envisioned as the first art museum experience for children – nurturing the child from birth through teens and into adulthood – creating a no-fail, arts-based learning environment that will transform the way children embrace the arts, become tomorrow’s patrons of the arts and develop into future advocates and supporters of the arts.
Years of extensive planning have gone into the visualization of the new Young At Art Museum. Experts from some of the nation’s finest museums including The Getty, Museum of Modern Art in New York, Noguchi Museum, Museum for African Art, Chicago Children’s Museum and Brooklyn Museum of Art convened in a symposium to inform the content and context of our Exhibit Master Plan. Parents, educators, artists, cultural groups, children and teens from across South Florida contributed their insights as well. A nationwide search for architects and exhibit designers resulted in the selection of an exceptional design team – AECOM of Miami and Glavovic Studios of Fort Lauderdale as architects; Architecture Is Fun of Chicago as exhibit designer; Redbox Workshop of Chicago as exhibit fabricator.
The new YAA is a place where families can gather; where children can build a sense of identity through art, architecture, history and culture; where artists can teach their aesthetics; where teachers can develop new art-integrated classroom skills; and where teens can expand their potential, whether through CD production in our Teen Center’s recording studio or through volunteer opportunities throughout the museum.
The new YAA embraces art reflective of the cultural diversity of South Florida, enabling children and adults of diverse ethnicities to build bridges of understanding. Through art children will discover themselves and their role in society.
Above all, children and teens, adults and seniors, teachers and students will have fun - exploring, experiencing, discovering and learning by creating art that explores our diverse and complicated world and helps us understand the broad range of human experience.
