The Children’s Museum, 2 West Seventh Street, Bloomsburg is excited to reveal its new logo. The logo was revealed at a breakfast for members, donors, and key stakeholders on Saturday, June 10.
Founded thirty-three years ago in May 1984, the original Children’s Museum’s logo was designed in the 1990s. Cindi Harper Hron, a professor at Penn College of Technology, challenged her students to design an appropriate logo for the Museum. The designs of the semi-finalists were submitted to the Children’s Museum and the final design was selected.
Shawna Meiser, Director of the Museum says, “The previous logo served us well for many decades. As our programs, services, and constituents have expanded, so should our visual identity. We are proud to serve a wide range of children, from infant through high school and this new logo represents that broad appeal.”
The Children’s Museum’s Marketing Committee worked with a small focus group to brainstorm specific design elements that should be incorporated into the new logo, as well as colors. The new logo, designed by freelance graphic designer Adrienne Beaver of Middleburg, features three children reaching for a lightbulb that erupts into a flurry of activity – gears, art splats, leaves, bubbles and stars are all represented in the experiential logo.
Kathy Beidler, Chair of the Museum’s Marketing Committee and Board secretary says, “The new logo is bright, engaging, and communicates the emphasis that our Museum has on hands-on learning, including science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math – all areas that are critical to the success of children of all ages.”
The Children’s Museum is a non-profit organization with a mission to enrich the lives of people in the 10-county region by fostering a lifelong love of learning through interactive programs and exhibits that bring out the imagination in every child and the child in every visitor. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
