These works depict our community’s myriad experiences with the destabilizing events of this year – differing in medium and style but sharing themes like isolation, resistance, resilience and hope.

MoCA Mural

MOCA is pleased to announce a new, outdoor commission from artist and writer Jibade-Khalil Huffman, on view at the Museum starting at 7pm on Friday, August 14

This large-scale, public work will be visible from the street, and can be experienced by walking or driving by MOCA on McCormick Street anytime, though optimal viewing times are at or just after sunset. Click here for directions and parking information

Action Painting is a multimedia artwork installed on MOCA’s facade that includes a bold vinyl collage, multi-channel video projections and sound composition. This commission enabled the crystallization of an image and set of ideas Huffman has been building over the past year. The piece presents an open-ended exploration of the layers of violence, disenfranchisement and joy that mark the history of racism and resistance leading up to this time of mass protest against police violence and white supremacy culture in the United States.
