Join MOCA’s Art on the Plaza series in this unique activation celebrating the artist Najja Moon. In her work “Reading Reflections,” Moon explores themes of reflection and self-empowerment through a human-scale intervention jutting out from MOCA’s Plaza. Participants are invited to add their own interventions and reflections in this collaborative movement and drawing-based activation as they learn how to communicate through their own enigmatic symbolism.
Led by Moon, participants will draw on rolls of canvas around the “Reading Reflections” installation using black markers to add their own symbols and reflections on life, memories, poetry, hopes and dreams, activating the work in new ways. From 6 – 10 p.m., guests can also enjoy a block party with a conversation with the artist, food from food trucks, and free lemonade from Paradise Bistro. Vendors and music will also be on the MOCA plaza. Guests are invited to stay for Jazz at MOCA, the monthly free community jazz concert. MOCA Members can register for a free drink ticket and 10% food discount.
