Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase public awareness and knowledge of our underrepresented immigrant and native artists and their cultures by providing bilingual access to their art, history, music, poetry and film to visitors of all ages, including through national and international touring exhibits. The Intern/Volunteer staff is a pioneer museum and grouping of the American mosaic and the long role of immigrants in the struggle for freedom for a more adequate representation of freedom and the gifts of culture and arts to each other. Internships are commonly for a semester but may be renewed for exceptional candidates. The MOCHA museum is now a 501c educational and cultural institution. Its programs offer educational exchanges between the states. If interested please call or contact MOCHA either by phone (202) 483-2777 or by email at Mochamuseum@gmail.com

Description

MOCHA (pronounced MOKA) is located in Washington D.C. We exhibit the artistic gifts to America of Hispanic and Latino (including Hispano, Chicano, Puerto Rican) artists, and immigrant artists, alongside the contributions of Native- and African American artists. Our planned galleries, called the "7 Portals to Freedom", will be connecting different immigrant cultures by the shared concept of seeking freedom within America. This is a unique, nonprofit museum being started in order to exhibit the contemporary and ancestral work of both immigrant and Native Born artists of those who do not often get representation in the art and museum world. Under some circumstances interns may receive college credit through essays and professional examination of the arts.

We currently are a small staff who are trying to reach out to the public as well as raise money in order to secure ownership of our museum space.
