Fallout: Collective Action Workshops

When: Sat., Aug. 26 2017

As part of MOCA Cleveland’s current exhibition, Constant as the Sun, artists Kate Sopko and Angela Beallor’s installation considers the practice of creating bomb/fallout shelters by creating one of their own inside the museum. Beginning in the 1950s, Americans built fallout shelters in response to the new concept of nuclear war. Sopko and Beallor’s installation reconsiders these structures and their purpose in our current socio-political climate. From noon to 5 p.m. today, MOCA Cleveland hosts Fallout: Collective Action Workshops. Organized by Sopko and Beallor with Deidre McPherson, these workshops are facilitated by Francis Chiappa, M. Carmen Lane and the Lake Effect Free Alternative Health Clinic. Through the installation and workshops, organizers ask, “How can we build stronger, more cohesive movements for positive change?” The workshops are free with museum admission, but registration is strongly encouraged. MOCA Cleveland admission is $9.50 for adults, $6 for seniors ages 65 and over, $5 for students with valid ID. Admission is always free for MOCA Cleveland members, children ages 5 and under, active military and veterans. A complete schedule of programs is available at MOCA Cleveland’s Summer 2017 exhibitions remain on view through Sept. 17. (Usmani)
