We were recently invited to the Museum of Art & History {MOAH} Opening Day! We certainly aren’t ones to turn down such an offer! The museum is beautiful.  The rooftop is actually stunning.  We enjoyed, almost an entire day, of jam-packed activity. From the Native American Drum Circle, live dance, art projects for kids and live music on the rooftop – the museum did not disappoint.

 

 

The City of Lancaster adds a bit of flavour. Well done.

Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) houses a collection of post-war period and contemporary art in the areas of painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, photography, film, installations and new media.

 

The museum also houses a collection of art pertaining to the Antelope Valley region. This art was created by artists that lived in, worked in or were inspired to create by the region. Rotating art exhibitions focus on contemporary artists, as well as the art housed within the current collection.

 

In addition, the museum has a vast collection of Native American, historic artifacts and geologic specimens pertaining primarily to the Antelope Valley and its surrounding areas.

 

Many of these items will be on permanent display within the museum, while others make up some of the history themed rotating exhibits showcased throughout the year.
