An Update from Our Executive Director:


Dear MCA Community,


I hope that you are safe and healthy.  We all know that art and creativity can flourish and inspire us during dark times.  So, we feel that supporting and cultivating artistic expression is particularly important now.


Though the MCA has lost substantial revenue and our building is closed, our staff is working from home to provide fresh programming and continue to keep our community connected.


We have changed our programming to adjust to our new reality - alone together - transforming classes to online formats, as well as creating new online visual and performing art experiences.


As Executive Director of the Mosesian Center, I continue to be inspired by the creativity, flexibility, and generosity of our artist communities, staff, and friends. I feel blessed to be a part of such a caring community. We have seen our fabric artists come to the aid of our First Responders by making masks, donors step up in unprecedented ways, and artists learn new tools while donating their time and expertise.


This global pandemic has reminded us all of the fragility and interdependency of our human community, where we have, and I continue to witness our community utilizing our gifts to help each other.


So, thank you to those of you who have volunteered, donated, and continued to stand by us at this unprecedented time. With your help, the Mosesian Center will continue to do its part.


We all look forward to the time when we can gather safely and celebrate our community together again, until then we appreciate your support of the MCA during this challenging time.
