First Saturdays are a fun way to get to know MOCA Cleveland. Community art projects on the ground floor provide opportunities to try out art practices explored in the galleries. Pick-up a printed Scavenger Hunt or First Time Visit tour card at the Welcome Center to guide your visit. Connect with the Museum through afternoon Highlights Tours , shorter Target Talks, or go in depth with One Hour, One Work. Don’t miss the ArtSquad Plays Workroom, where families with kids 10 and under get creative with activities, books, and games created by MOCA’s ArtSquad characters, Beauregard and Cherry, who teach kids how to LOOK! THINK! and SHARE! First Saturdays are always free and have something for all ages to enjoy.
ONE HOUR / ONE WORK
Contemporary art may move quickly, but there are great benefits to slowing down to interpret it. This adult educational program invites participants to intentionally reduce their “speed reading” and spend considerable time with a single work on view.
Each session, a museum educator will select a different work of art for sixty minutes of focused looking, conversation, consideration, interpretation, and understanding. Flex your art endurance and find out how rewarding extended time with an artwork can be. A different artwork is selected for each month and repeated on Wednesday and the Saturday date. Artworks are not announced in advance.
