OMCA at Home

While OMCA may be closed, we are committed to doing what we do best—staying connected with our community. We realize what a hard time this is and are keeping you in our thoughts. Here, we'll be sharing videos exploring past exhibitions and events, educational resources for students and teachers, our favorite works from our collection, and more. 

To ensure that we can continue to be a community anchor during this difficult time, please consider making a gift to support OMCA today.
