Art Exhibits

Free First Saturday

When: Sat., Aug. 5 2017

Admission to MOCA Cleveland is free today, and on the first Saturday of every month, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This month, you can visit the open art studio, attend a one-hour discussion about one single piece of art, and check out MOCA's Summer 2017 exhibitions, including Keith Mayerson: My American Dream, the group exhibit Constant as the Sun, and Lu Yang: Delusional Mandala. Each exhibit features socially conscious artwork exploring relevant and important issues of community in contemporary society. Constant as the Sun includes work by Tyree Guyton from Detroit's famous Heidelberg Project, which utilizes art made from found materials to embellish the exteriors and lawns of vacant homes. Viewable from MOCA's staircase, a wall outside the gallery features 10 of Guyton's nonfunctional clocks, which explore the concept of time as a metaphor. At 1 p.m. today, Guyton visits the museum for a free discussion with his partner Jenenne Whitfield and a screening of the Emmy Award-winning documentary, Come Unto Me: The Faces of Tyree Guyton (1999). The exhibits remain on view through Sept. 17. (Usmani)
