Dodgeball in the museum? Dancing near the installations? Turning your fear of insects into art?

Since their move to University Circle in the spring of 2012, MOCA has instituted a series of non-traditional programs to lure visitors to the museum by breaking through their fear of contemporary art.

MOCA programs The Intrepreters: Third Thursday of the month from 6:30 – 8 p.m. $20 for MOCA Members; $30 for non-members. Individual Classes: $8 for MOCA Members; $10 for non-members .Ticket price includes materials and one complimentary beverage.

One Hour/One Work: Second Wednesday of the month at 1 p.m. Free with gallery admission; reservation recommended.

Phobic Drawing Class: 7 to 10 p.m. January 24. This spin on the traditional museum drawing class invites participants to capitalize on phobias to generate original works of art. Inducing conditions like acrophobia (heights), claustrophobia (confined spaces), and entomophobia (insects) will be integrated into the creative process.

Go With Me! 7 p.m. February 7. The second-annual elementary-school themed event takes participants” back to a time when meeting new people was as easy as writing a note or standing next to them in gym class.” Fan favorites from last year including Dodgeball, Parachute, and Musical Chairs. Call 216-421-8671 or to register for any event. MOCA is at 11400 Euclid Ave., Cleveland.

These include the Go With Me "elementary-school inspired mingling" – hence the dodgeball - the Phobic Drawing Class, and One Work/One Hour, in which a group contemplates one piece of art together for yes, one hour.

"In reality, contemporary art is a lot of different things, " says Megan Reich, MOCA's director of programs. "You can't box it into categories, but certainly there is an uncertainty with people as to what they're going to see. It can be mysterious."

These new adult outreach programs include The Interpreters, a Third Thursday series that begins this Thursday, Nov. 21. Like the other programs, it seeks to demystify both the museum and the concept of contemporary art.

"It's an opportunity to break down preconceptions and have fun with art, to approach the work in a way that is about a more social experience, " says Reich

This article appeared in a Las Vegas newspaper talking about Forest Park in St. Louis. Forest Park is located in the center of the St. Louis city limits-sort of like Central Park in NYC.
Compare the amenities mentioned in the article with Golden Gate Park, and compare the prices for admission between Golden Gate Park attractions and Forest Park.
And then, to round out your understanding, realize that St. Louis was settled by disenfranchised Europeans that were shut out of cultural institutions that were only offered to the wealthy elite. To prevent that, as St. Louis was established, the early citizens made a point that many cultural and artistic institutions would be provided to the public in perpetuity at no cost
