Hello MOA friends! We have a special announcement that we’d like to share with you. It’s a new era for the Museum of Outdoor Arts! We have made timely programming and mission-related changes that now make it necessary for MOA to be headquartered nearer to its primary asset, Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, and to its outdoor programming base at Marjorie Park.
So, what does this all mean? It means that this spring we will be relocating our headquarters from Englewood to new offices within Marjorie Park at Fiddler’s Green in Greenwood Village. Our indoor exhibitions program will come to an end and our artist in residence and Design and Build programs will be reestablished in a new way in the near future. The museum will be curating pop-up exhibitions from time to time in a variety of locations and will be placing a greater focus on outdoor exhibitions in the future.
It also means that MOA is working with the City of Englewood to reimagine our partnership. We have submitted a proposal for much of our outdoor collection to remain on display in Englewood. Currently, MOA has nearly 40 artworks on public view within the downtown Englewood area. Continued efforts in the city will likely include arts outreach support and community placemaking projects.
We would like to thank the City of Englewood for providing a home to MOA’s offices, galleries, and studios for the past 22 years. Without their support, we would not have been able to produce the over 200 indoor art exhibitions and installations, multi-media performances, hundreds of youth art classes, artists in residence, youth arts education opportunities, community placemaking projects, and more!
While it’s bittersweet to close our Englewood facilities, we are excited at the possibility of continuing to serve Englewood in a reimagined way and to bring new and exciting programming to our patrons at Marjorie Park and beyond.
