About Nationwide Museum Mascot Project
The Nationwide Museum Mascot Project (NWMMP) promotes art museums and venues across the nation by creating custom-made mascots that engage with visitors and the general public. Waving, giving high-fives, blowing kisses to visitors, passing out homemade buttons, stickers, and flyers, producing theme songs, offering unexpected promotions with the price of admission are among the mascot’s activities. Depending on the institution, NWMMP activities range from outdoor picketing with pro-venue signs and engaging street and sidewalk traffic to working closely with museum education and programming, museum guards, volunteers, docents, and community members. Since 2005, NWMMP has mascoted art venues across the United States, including San Diego, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
