David Quammen, the Owner/Executive Director of MOCA DC, is an amazing guy. He lives art and supports all artists all the time. One of my first shows was at MOCA DC and I have had many more there since.
David originally came to Washington DC as a political activist on the issue of homelessness in America and the topic of political activism is very dear to his heart.
From the MOCADC.org website: “Our mission is to be Open to All Artists All the Time; we strive to recognize and give voice to a wide variety of unrepresented artists. We are one of the few figurative galleries in the country with a progressive attitude toward the nude figure.
Our policy is unique in the art world, for it is literally Your gallery, too:You who become members; You who exhibit art; You who come to gallery functions; You who participate in gallery events; and You who take the lead on an exhibit, a function, a service, a – – – it’s literally Your Gallery to use or direct as you will.”
Open: Wednesday to Friday 1 to 6 pm. Saturday 1 to 5 pm.
