MOCA Adds an Amy Sherald

More acquisition news: MOCA has added a 2017 Amy Sherald, The Lesson of Falling Leaves. Interest in Sherald has spiked since her Michelle Obama portrait, with several museums acquiring her work in the past couple of years. This appears to be the first painting by the Baltimore-based artist in a West Coast institution. MOCA's Acquisition and Collection Committee funded the purchase.
