We create experiences that connect people to art, ideas, and one another. At CMOA, we believe creativity is a defining human characteristic to which everyone should have access. CMOA collects, preserves, and presents artworks from around the world to inspire, sustain, and provoke discussion, and to engage and reflect multiple audiences.Our collection of more than 30,000 objects features a broad spectrum of visual arts, including painting and sculpture; prints and drawings; photographs; architectural casts, renderings, and models; decorative arts and design; and film, video, and digital imagery.

Just drop in for this all-ages printmaking workshop inspired by the masterwork Japanese woodblock prints in Hiroshige’s Tōkaidō Road

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? What would it look like? Would there be buildings and people? Animals and trees? Take a journey through 53 views of Japan’s southern coastal highway in the exhibition Hiroshige’s Tōkaidō Road. Created using Japanese wood blocks, these 19th century prints captured the landscapes, towns, people, and souvenirs along the route. Replicate the style and process of a wood block print using scratch foam. Our teaching artists will guide you to create a series of small prints about your favorite journey.
