MOCA STAY GOLD Spring 2020

Stay Gold: An Intergenerational Arts Program at MOCA

This event has been canceled. Message from Director Eli Burke follows:

Stay Gold will be postponed until the COVID-19 risk has diminished. We WILL RESUME once things settle and perhaps even add more sessions to ensure we can all finish our projects.

MOCA Tucson values the safety of our visitors, program participants and the community, above all else. Due to growing concerns over the spread of COVID-19, recent travel restrictions put into place and global health advisories, MOCA Tucson will suspend all education programming until we can reassess the status of this health crisis.

Stay tuned for future communication about when our regular programming will resume. And please feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concerns over these recent changes at 520-269-6119 or

I will miss seeing you all this week! Please keep in touch and check in. I will send out another email once we work out a date for programming to resume. If any of you want to pick-up your projects to continue working on them you are welcome to. Just let me know. Otherwise they are safe in the education space at MOCA.

This 10-week intergenerational arts program invites LGBTQIA+ individuals age 13-99 into the museum space to connect and create through current themes explored in contemporary art. This spring we are creating mixed media portraits inspired by the paintings of Amir Fallah. Stay Gold is aimed at creating an equitable and inclusive environment that fosters deeper connections within the LGBTQIA+ community by bringing youth, seniors, and ages in between together to make art. You do not need to have any previous art experience to participate. Spring 2020 facilitators: Harrison Orr and Eli Burke
