From the Archives… Work from our Permanent Collection

  • Dec 25 2023 - Dec 25 2023


The Museum of Northern California Art (monca) is proud to present a unique and captivating exhibition: “From the Archives… Work from our Permanent Collection.” Available for just one month, this exhibit is a rare chance to dive deep into the heart of our art collection.

A Journey Through Artistic Innovation

Our special exhibit brings to light the remarkable pieces from the Reed Applegate Collection, showcasing a rich tapestry of art that spans various styles and periods. But that’s not all. We’re also thrilled to introduce our newest acquisitions, adding fresh vibrancy to our already diverse collection.

The star of the show? The interactive, steel, magnetic sculptures by the visionary artist Alice Hutchins. Known for her groundbreaking approach in the art world, Hutchins’ sculptures are more than just visually stunning; they invite you to interact and engage with them, creating a dynamic experience that changes with each viewing.

Art That Moves You

Hutchins’ works are a testament to the power of kinetic art — art that involves movement and participation. These pieces are not just to be seen but to be experienced, making you an active participant in the art itself. This interactive nature of Hutchins’ sculptures is what makes this exhibit truly engaging.

A Limited-Time Opportunity

“From the Archives… Work from our Permanent Collection” is an exhibit that promises to enchant, engage, and educate. It’s a unique convergence of art, motion, and history, offering insights into both the past and the future of artistic expression.

But remember, this showcase is here until January 21st, 2024. Mark your calendars and make plans to visit monca now. This is an opportunity you won’t want to miss — a chance to immerse yourself in the evolving world of art and to see firsthand how the classics mingle with the new to tell the ever-unfolding story of human creativity.
