    Due to extraordinary weather conditions on Sunday, October 24, OMCA experienced some water damage to our campus. Leaking occurred from the upper level of the Museum, entering the Great Hall gallery below where our special exhibition Mothership: Voyage Into Afrofuturism is on view and where our upcoming exhibition Edith Heath: A Life in Clay is being installed. There has been no damage to any of the artifacts or artworks in the galleries and no impact on visitor or staff safety.

For these reasons, our extraordinary OMCA Safety Team has been hard at work putting in place the greatest possible safety precautions to ensure your safety and the safety of all those around us.
