Art Talk – MOCA

As one of Los Angeles’ biggest cultural institutions, you bet the Museum of Contemporary owns some of the best art in the city. But how do all those fantastic masterpieces get there? Well, curator Alma Ruiz can tell you. Head over to the museum February 28 at 7 p.m. for “How MOCA Acquires New Works,” a free chat about how the museum gets new pieces. Ruiz worked as a curator for the museum starting in the 1980s so she’s definitely a good person to listen in terms of the museum’s workings. Next time you swing by MOCA you can impress your friends with that new info.

Head to the opening reception February 28 at 7 p.m. and discover the joy in shapes all over again – just bring your imagination.
