Target Free Thursdays at MOCA

The Skint is one of my fave deal sources on Twitter. Today, they retweeted Target Free Thursdays at the Museum of Chinese in the Americas, or MOCA in NYC, not to be confused with the MoCA in LA (Museum of Contemporary Art). I’m especially intrigued by the “With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America” exhibit in the space designed by Maya Lin, the artist/architect who designed the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial.

With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America, MOCA’s new core exhibit, will bring to life the Museum’s unique historical content and birth a compelling art work by fusing itself with the architectural heart of its new home designed by Maya Linon Centre Street.  Metaphorically and literally, this “heart” will ground visitors, and be the focal point of the “new MOCA experience.”  This presentation is an innovative approach to museum and exhibition design.  It will facilitate a new way of interacting with content: through the evocative use of space that stirs visitors’ emotions and breaks down barriers to deeper learning and understanding.

This looks like it’ll be a great space, and an informative and interesting exhibit on Asian American history. I’ve never been, so I think I’ll check it out tonight. If you want to join and grab a bite afterwards, let me know!

Go: MOCA NYC (Chinatown) 215 Centre Street between Howard and Grand, New York, NY 10013. Free Thursday 11 am to 9 pm.
