MoCCA Arts Festival Has New Location
The beloved MoCCA Arts Festival, to be held this year on April 11 and 12, is moving to a new location. Center 548 is located on West 22nd Street near 11th Avenue and the Chelsea Piers. Programming will be held in two rooms at the High Line Hotel on West 20th Street and 10th Avenue, “a mere two blocks away”. The event will include three exhibit floors, a gallery of original art showcasing the work of special guests, and a rooftop café. Although there will be fewer tables in the new space, admission remains $5 a day.
The Guests of Honor are Aline Kominsky-Crumb, Scott McCloud, Raina Telgemeier, and J.H. Williams, an excellent selection. I had a blast at last year’s show, where they exhibited the Charlie Brown parade balloon — I’m curious to see what they come up with this year.
