  • With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America
    Tue, Sep 1, 2009 - Thu, Dec 31, 2020

    With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America, MOCA’s new core exhibit, will bring to life the Museum’s unique historical content and birth a compelling art work by fusing itself with the architectural heart of its new home designed by Maya Lin on Centre Street.  Metaphorically and literally, this “heart” will ground visitors, and be the focal point of the “new MOCA experience.”  This presentation is an innovative approach to museum and exhibition design.  It will facilitate a new way of interacting with content: through the evocative use of space that stirs visitors’ emotions and breaks down barriers to deeper learning and understanding.
