The Underground Museum is dedicated to exhibiting museum quality art to diverse communities for free. The UM upholds the belief that art is an essential part of a vibrant, just, and healthy society. The UM’s role as a cultural hub and urban oasis serves low-to-moderate income neighborhoods and cultivates the hope that increasing access to art will inspire, educate and transform lives.
Grant funding will be used in support of the exhibition Artist of Color which will present a bold collection of color field paintings and immersive installations meant to shift viewers’ perceptions of space. It is The Underground Museums third exhibition created in collaboration with MOCA and features some of the biggest names from MOCA’s permanent collection including Josef Albers, Michael Asher, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd and more. The exhibition is scheduled for May 2017 through September 2017.
