Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA)

Pasadena Art Alliance

Founded in 1979, MOCA collects, exhibits, and interprets art created since 1940 in all media, and is dedicated to preserving it for future generations. The museum is housed in three locations, MOCA Grand Avenue, The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and MOCA Pacific Design Center.

Funding will be used to support the exhibition, Kerry James Marshall: Mastry, a 35 year retrospective of painter Kerry James Marshall.  This artist’s first major retrospective in the US contains nearly 80 paintings, all of which contain images of Black subjects going about their daily business, presented with utter equality and humanity.  The exhibition is scheduled for March 12 through July 3, 2017.
