MOCA - Art + Lectures + Drinks

  • Jul 28, 2013 · 1:00 PM















Hello All,


The July Art History Channel Museum Meetup is going to be at MOCA in dtla and I hope you can join us.


The schedule:

12:30: meet outside at the café

1:00-1:30: Talk outside on the patio on the post war shift of modern art from Europe to NY and the works that we will see inside.

1:30-3:30: Discussions continue inside, stay the group as long as you like, ask questions meet people.

After MOCA, be sure and go down to check out the Geffen Contemporary and bring you MOCA ticket stub to get in for free. Also, there is free and metered parking at the Geffen.

In detail:
This lecture will include Abstract Expressionism, Color Field painting and the New York School, Existential figurative sculpture, Neo-Dada and much more. Artist includes Rothko, Jackson Pollack, Claes Oldenburg, Franz Kline, Robert Rauschenberg and many more. This particular collection really speaks to the shift during WWll when the artists fled Hitler’s Europe and relocated to New York starting in 1939.

Is there free parking? No, the meters are $4 an hour and parking at the Disney Center across the street costs $8 or $10. Tickets to get in are $10 or $5 with student ID. This also includes free access to the Geffen Contemporary down the street.

    What a great lecture. I had so much fun listening to Sharon's lecture and viewing all the amazing abstract expressionist paintings inside MOCA.

    I am really looking forward to Sunday! Topics of in-between the Wars and Post-War art is a special interest of mine and I hope you will all like it. Please note the schedule:
    12:30 - meet & greet outside
    1:00 - lecture starts.
    If you park across the street at the Disney Center, plan on about 15 minutes to get over and buy tickets etc.

    Great, see you then, and look out for Meetup signage.
