MOCA Tucson believes in the power of art to connect and inspire. In this spirit, we have developed several free programs to offer during this time of social distancing that celebrate the talents of Tucson’s creative community and offer ways to stay engaged with the Museum though our doors are temporarily closed.
Though the current exhibitions are closed, MOCA will highlight our current set of artists by designing activities that take a deeper look at their unique techniques and themes. Our first at-home project gives step-by-step instructions to create your own flipbook animation, inspired by Diana Shpungin’s drawings and videos. And for inspiration watch Shpungin’s work in action, now available online, here.
This creative activity highlights the work of Amir H. Fallah and his exhibition at MOCA Tucson, Scatter My Ashes on Foreign Lands. Using Fallah’s masterful work as inspiration, this activity gives you step-by-step instructions on how to create a still life using objects found easily in your home.
