Pablo Center Partners with Children’s Museum of Eau Claire on Access


(EAU CLAIRE, WIS. January 7, 2020) - Pablo Center at the Confluence is pleased to join the ‘Play-For-All’ membership program with Children’s Museum of Eau Claire, offering access to families with children who have special needs, families on WIC or the Free and Reduced Lunch program, and military families throughout the Chippewa Valley.

Pablo Center grants each Play-For-All family a Supporter Membership, which includes advance alerts and ticket presales, in addition to access to reduced-cost tickets. Pablo Center is focused on Possibilities, Access and Partnerships.

“This partnership with the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire is a true mission-driven win for both organizations that ultimately benefits the whole community,” says Jason Jon Anderson, Pablo Center’s Executive Director. “I look forward to seeing this program benefit the children and families of our region.”

Children’s Museum of Eau Claire started the Play-For-All program in 2004, offering discounted memberships to those who need it most. Currently there are 699 families with an average enrollment of between 700-800 families.

The initiative is sustained by the Dan Clumpner Tribute Fund, with an endowment supporting access for all to literary, visual and performance art. This correlates and fulfills one of Pablo Center’s primary missions: ensuring expanded access to Pablo Center experiences for our community.

“The Children’s Museum of Eau Claire is honored to be the pilot partner in this initiative,” said Michael McHorney, CMEC Executive Director. “It’s easy to imagine a child visiting a place as special as Pablo Center, being inspired through this experience, and finding a passion for creativity later in life. The arts are powerful, inspirational and can transform lives, which is exactly the vision for CMEC’s Play for All Program.”
