ED-venture: Walk on the Wild Side at MOCA Jacksonville    NEW!

Explore the crazy, wonderful world described in Lou Reed’s famous song of the same title. Begin with lunch and a presentation by Ylva Rouse, MOCA Jacksonville’s senior curator, about the museum’s Norman E. Fisher collection of objects from the vibrant, revolutionary 1970s New York art scene. Immersed in that era’s cultural scene, Fisher befriended many luminaries whose radical creative experiments transformed the visual, literary and performing arts. Barriers defining different art forms were transcended and rejected. Collaboration fostered imaginative innovations. Works exhibited are drawn from a treasure trove of nearly 700 works in all media donated in 1979 by the Jacksonville native’s family. The collection encompasses works by Vito Acconci, Richard Artschwager, Louise Bourgeois, Dan Flavin, Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Brice Marden, Gordon Matta-Clark, Claes Oldenberg, Yoko Ono, Richard Serra, Frank Stella, Hannah Wilke and, of course, Andy Warhol among many others. Stop in the Atrium gallery to enjoy Stella’s “Jacksonville Stacked Stars”. Venue is fully accessible. Transportation and parking are on your own.
