LANCASTER – The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) this week announced its 10th Anniversary exhibition, which celebrates 10 years of operation at its central location on The BLVD. Residents are invited to attend the exhibition’s opening reception on Saturday, May 14, at 4 p.m. The 10th Anniversary exhibition will remain open to the public until Aug. 21.
MOAH (previously Lancaster Museum and Art Gallery) opened in 1986, and has since expanded to four sites within the city of Lancaster. The 10th anniversary exhibition celebrates the 2012 opening of the museum’s primary location on The BLVD. MOAH has been host to several large-scale curatorial initiatives. These art initiatives are done in-part by MOAH’s connection with other art organizations such as the Local Access partnership with Art Bridges and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to bring special exhibitions created from artworks in LACMA’s collection to the Antelope Valley community.
MOAH holds a collection of 10,000 artworks and historical artifacts to engage with diverse audience members from the Antelope Valley and the greater Southern California region. MOAH’s 10th-anniversary exhibition includes over 50 select works from its permanent collection, including pieces from Ali Smith, Lezlye Saar, Alex Anderson, Melanie Walker, and many more notable Southern California artists. The public will also find four solo exhibitions from contemporary artists Super A, Sam Comen, Chris Engman, and Debra Scacco.
MOAH is open Tuesday to Friday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with extended hours on Thursdays until 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.lancastermoah.org.
