Selections from the MOCRA Collection
Amid so much that afflicts and overwhelms us, it is tempting to step away from the path of life and wall ourselves off for self-protection. These artworks, in varied ways, suggest the value of journeying on, open to others and the world, and to our deepest selves.
Featured Work: Michael Tracy, The Romero Cross
“Cruz to Bishop Oscar Romero, Martyr of El Salvador” is a major work by artist Michael Tracy, dedicated to the Archbishop of El Salvador who was assassinated in 1980 and canonized a saint in the Roman Catholic Church in 2018. The Romero Cross has been seen worldwide in prominent venues including the 1982 Venice Biennale, and became part of MOCRA’s permanent collection in 2016. It is now on display after a major conservation and cleaning project that lasted more than half a year.
Jordan Eagles: VIRAL\VALUE
The 2017 auction sale of a purported Leonardo da Vinci painting prompts a consideration of the value systems of art, religion and health care. Whose lives, experiences and stories are acknowledged and valued, in what contexts, and by whom?
MOCRA has presented a wide array of exhibitions, including solo and group shows, encompassing painting, photography, prints, sculpture, video, digital art and more.
MOCRA is proud to show the work of artists of regional, national and international stature, representing a diverse cross-section of backgrounds.
