A growing collection 

March 5–april 9, 2022

As OMA commences their 25th anniversary year, exhibition staff have selected some of the most noteworthy works donated to the collection in the last five years, providing visitors a fresh and exciting visual experience that explores the art and stories of Southern California artists.

“OMA has emerged as a vital gathering place for creativity and art since that landmark moment 25 years ago—providing a much-needed platform for artists in Southern California to share their voice with community members and art lovers along the cultural corridor from Los Angeles to Tijuana.” –Executive Director Maria Mingalone
