MOCRA follows the guidance of Saint Louis University concerning the wearing of masks and other COVID-19 measures.
MOCRA is closed to the public as we prepare for our upcoming exhibition (see below).
Double Vision: Art from Jesuit University Collections
Art plays a unique role in Jesuit teaching as an instrument for finding meaning in life through imagination, feelings, and reflection. “Double Vision” features work from collections of MOCRA, the Haggerty Museum of Art (Marquette University), and the Loyola University Museum of Art (Loyola University Chicago). The exhibition pairs works of art from the three collections to explore fourteen themes expressive of the human condition to encourage an imaginative, contemplative space for personal reflection. Opens in mid-February.
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.
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.
