Free Opening Night Party + Concert with Mark Mothersbaugh
Free + open to all
Myopia Mania is coming! Kick off MOCA’s summer season with a free outdoor party and concert - with Mark Mothersbaugh in person - to celebrate the opening of two exhibitions with Ohio roots: Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia and Richard Myers: Aberrations.
Meet Mark Mothersbaugh: myope, singer, visual artist, art rock revolutionary, tinkerer, songwriter, polymath, visionary. Born in Akron and best known as co-founder of DEVO, Mothersbaugh has been making raucous art since before the band’s inception, collapsing visual and musical boundaries. A fellow Ohioan, independent filmmaker Richard Myers’ Aberrations includes four dream-like films shot around Cleveland from the 1960s-80s.
- 7:00PM OPENING of Summer exhibitions
- 7:30–10PM PARTY + CONCERT on Toby’s Plaza in front of MOCA featuring a band, a performance on Mothersbaugh’s signature 6-sided keyboard, and a DJ set by Mothersbaugh himself.
Six-sided keyboard musicians: Chris Auerbach Brown, Cutty Calhoun, Megan Cox, Rob Kovacs, Peggy Latkovich, and Geoff Peterson.
Myopia Band: Ariel Clayton Karas (Violin), Cynthia Warren (Oboe/English Horn), Jennifer Ellis (harp), Geoff Peterson (keyboard), Joel Negus (double bass), and Mell Csicsila (percussion).
DJ: Mark Mothersbaugh
