Making the World a Better Place

MOCAH or rather the Museum of Cultural Arts – Houston is a museum without walls whose mission is to use art and creativity for community development and social awareness. They bring the arts to public venues in the form of murals and mosaics to be enjoyed by those that typically don’t visit the many galleries and museums that abound within Houston.

Utilizing local community leaders, volunteers and students of all ages, MOCAH gives them all a hand in creating a piece and then making it a permanent display within the community.

The Kashmere Multi Service Center in the Fifth Ward displays just one of the over 80 projects already completed within the city.
