Following Sunday Studio, Holly Myers and Micol Hebron present a panel discussion on the myths and realities of being an artist parent. Part of Myers’ Colloquy series, this panel brings together a diverse mix of leading Los Angeles area artists to consider such questions as: How does being a parent affect or influence your creative process? What biases have you encountered as a parent in the art world? How has being a parent changed your perspective on your art and on the role of art in culture? How do kids’ perspectives influence you, as artists?

The Herbert and Dorothy Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States at MOCA
Feb 10, 2013-Mar 11, 2013

In 2005 Herb and Dorothy Vogel made an extraordinary gift of artwork to the country by donating fifty works from their collection to fifty individual institutions across the United States. The Museum of Contemporary Art was chosen as the receiving institution in California and became part of the historic Fifty Works for Fifty States project, which includes significant works by Carl Andre, Lynda Benglis, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Edda Renouf, and Richard Tuttle, among others. MOCA will showcase a selection of this gift in its Grand Avenue building as a testament to the commitment of two contemporary art collectors and their wish to share their collection with the public.
