Art Exhibits

Free First Saturday

When: Sat., Nov. 4 2017

Have you recently visited MOCA Cleveland to view its Fall 2017 Exhibitions yet? If not, never fear. Thanks to a generous gift from PNC, admission is free to all on the first Saturday of each month. Stop in today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to explore MOCA Cleveland’s current exhibitions: the first U.S. museum solo show by British artist Phil Collins (not the musician) and A Poet*hical Wager, a group exhibition of contemporary abstract artists from around the world who use abstraction to convey complex feelings and ethical concepts that can’t be depicted through representational imagery. For Collin’s first US museum exhibition, the artist has created six listening booths, each with a 7-inch vinyl recording of original songs created in collaboration with guests of a homeless shelter in Cologne, Germany. Collins installed a phone booth with a free line at the shelter, available for unlimited local and international calls, with the understanding that the conversations would be recorded anonymously. Collins offered selected recording to his musician-friends, who used the recordings to create new songs for the recording booths. MOCA Cleveland’s Fall 2017 Exhibitions remain on view through January 28, 2018. (Usmani)
