Ogden Museum of Contemporary Art Celebrates First Show Above Ground!

On April 1, 2016 OMOCA, Weber State’s Contemporary art brain child will celebrate its third show, the first to be held outside of a basement. Ogden Museum of Contemporary Art was founded by students in the BFA class at Weber State University to create a contemporary collaborative platform for exhibiting new work off campus and in the Ogden area. Right now, OMOCA’s goal is to host shows in unusual spaces until a more permanent site can be established. OMOCA is ecstatic to collaborate with Amir Jackson and Nurture the Creative Mind (NCM).

OMOCA’s newest show, Advanced Doodles will be showcasing selected work form Weber State’s Advance Drawing class, Matthew Choberka the head of the art department as well as Scott R Horsely Weber’s newest fine art professor. These works will be presented side by side pieces form the youth of NCM. The drawings range from traditional mediums to more experimental materials and mark making. Come see a unique variety of contemporary drawings.

Advanced Doodles will have an opening reception during First Friday Art Stroll, April 1st 2016, 6-9:00pm, 2501 Wall Ave, Ogden Ut (south side of Union Station), and will run for the month of April.
