    February 8, 2022
    Black excellence, the celebration of triumph and ascendancy in the Black community, is a mentality backed by actions of leadership and perseverance. As part of OMCA's reimagination of the collection-building process from one that was largely passive to one that actively engages and prioritizes individuals who are often marginalized and excluded from cultural institutions, we present four recent acquisitions that exemplify Black excellence along with two pieces from OMCA's collection.

    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.
