Museo de Culturas y Herencias Americanas
MOCHA (pronounced MOKA) is a unique, new museum that is launching in the historic Dupont Circle museum and gallery corridor in Washington, D.C. It is, itself, the great American dream of its founding board of directors, advisory board, staff and interns — for a museum that will serve todays’ America. The impetus has been a desire to aid talented, culturally diverse artists, who are underrepresented in our larger museums (especially in the permanent collections), by presenting more exhibition opportunities (in their lifetime) across color lines, with mixed focus on older and newer American cultures, and with a special focus on works that reflect a search for the great American dream of freedom, equality and of having full opportunities to improve one’s life. Visit our website mochamuseum.org to learn more about us and to read our great American dream essay series!
We are a “start up” nonprofit, currently with a small, dedicated volunteer and interns staff, but with a wealth of experience — including a board of directors and national advisory board made up of artists, educators, and museum-field professionals.
We will present exhibits and programs for the greater DC/MD/VA area, but are also a national museum — serving and exhibiting artists from across the nation. In addition, we’ll have an international presence through our unique “Gateways” exchange program for artists, scholars and interns, and toured exhibitions across America and abroad.
In this American mosaic, our nonprofit museum is needed and unique.
