MOCA Jacksonville Expects Big Weekend Crowd During One Spark

Apr 11, 2014

With an estimated 85,000 people in downtown Jacksonville over just the first two days of the 2014 One Spark festival, the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville expects an influx of visitors this weekend.

MOCA isn't worried about the numbers, because there will be plenty happening at the museum.

One of many exhibits at the museum is the Jacksonville-based artist Shaun Thurston’s "Project Atrium: One Spark."

He had been working behind a giant curtain, which was dropped on Wednesday. The exhibit is the culmination of his 2013 One Spark project, the goal of which was to paint 20 murals in one year.

MOCA spokeswoman Denise Reagan and curator Ben Thompson joined Melissa Ross with more on everything going on this week at the museum.
