Statement of Support

CCMA is an arts organization with the word community as part of its name. And so we grieve with communities of color in our city, our country and the world, for the death of George Floyd and all the others before him who have been disadvantaged, suffered and died because of the color of their skin.
 
As we have seen over the past few weeks, collective grief can be channeled into positive actions that change institutions and systems to create a more just society. CCMA intends to be part of that change.
 

 Events at the Museum

No events are currently scheduled.
