Namesake Exhibition
1625 Clay Street, Oakland CA
10:00 am-4:00 pm @ The Museum

MOCHA’s “NEA Big Read” program will be active in five library branches during October which is Family History month. MOCHA will provide one workshop at each branch every week for two hours. These workshops will combine art and literacy and include both hands-on and discussion portions as well as book giveaways. In addition to 100 copies of The Namesake for adults and older youth, MOCHA will give away 125 copies of Honoring Our Ancestors by Harriet Rohmer to younger children. At the initial sessions MOCHA teaching artists will introduce The Namesake and provide an overview of the program. Subsequent sessions will focus on predetermined themes and include dialogues about the book as well as hands-on art components. The artwork to be created will be multimedia collage portraits on canvas squares which will later be combined to form a collaborative, community quilt to be displayed at the MOCHA museum.
