The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH), 601 W. Lancaster Blvd., has announced its 10th Anniversary exhibition, celebrating 10 years of operation at its central location on The BLVD. MOAH invites the public to the exhibition’s opening reception tomorrow, 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. Since then, the museum has continued to grow—now operating four sites within the City of Lancaster.
The 10th Anniversary exhibition celebrates the 2012 opening of the museum’s primary location. 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.
The museum has long dedicated its operations to highlighting historic traditions and artistic revolutions of the Southern California region through community-focused exhibitions, educational initiatives, and engagement programs.
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 Walke; 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.
The Lancaster Museum of Art and History is dedicated to strengthening awareness, enhancing accessibility, and igniting the appreciation of art, history, and culture in the Antelope Valley through dynamic exhibitions, innovative educational programs, creative community engagement, and a vibrant collection that celebrates the richness of the region.
MOAH is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, with extended hours on Thursdays until 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.lancastermoah.org.
