O Street Museum Foundation 

Mission: To empower people to do what they love — dare to be different — and have fun. We inspire creativity, diversity, and imagination through the fusion of the arts, science, and sports.

For more information, visit their website.


The creative process comes in many forms: from the wrinkles on your grandmother’s face to a refugee’s smile in Darfur. Every story has a beautiful lining that we can all learn from, and share with each other.  We seek to reshape how people see and connect with the beauty of the world around them, starting from their power, within.  Together we can achieve things beyond what we know.

Description of Education Initiatives: We believe exploration and discovery are the keys to learning. We offer a variety of experiential learning opportunities where students learn by doing as they journey through a variety of exhibits, architecture, history and more.
