Experience “Art with a Message” at OCCCA: July 6th - August 24th

July 05, 2024

Art with a Message at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Ana runs from July 6th to August 24th, 2024. Join OCCCA for drinks, food, and live music at their Art Walk Reception on Saturday, July 6th, from 6-10 p.m.

Art with a Message: The arc of history bends toward justice, and art with a message accelerates this process. Art with sharp, implied, or focused messages can afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted. 

It helps envision a future free from the tyranny of ignorance, oppression, and discrimination. As the late Carrie Fisher said, “Take your broken heart and make it into art.” In "Art with a Message," strength, beauty, and truth walk hand in hand. This exhibition showcases powerful visual inspirations and provocations in a wide range of styles covering various themes. It aims to awaken the world's conscience, celebrating diversity, tolerance, and art’s promise of happiness.

Free expression and topicality are traditions at OCCCA, an artist-run alternative space serving the contemporary art scene since 1980. Founded by artists, OCCCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-volunteer gallery located in the heart of the Santa Ana Artists Village. It presents exhibitions of contemporary art, concerts, performances, art classes, symposiums, and publications, all free to the public.

Orange County Center for Contemporary Art is at 117 N Sycamore St., Santa Ana. 714.667.1517
