You can enjoy another "Pop Up" museum by The Museum of Northern California Art in Chico, through the end of October.
This one is about Engaging Challenged Communities, and it's located at 215 Main Street.
With this Pop Up MONCA asks the community to observe how a museum can address and interact with autism, blindness and physical and mentally challenged individuals.
You can watch artists from the ARC art program, under the guidance of Alan Carrier, create their art from feelings, emotions, past experiences and just pure pleasure each Wednesday morning from 9 a.m. until noon.
There is also a room built as a space to capture the feelings and emotions of the autistic population.
Through a retrospective exhibition of the works of artist and educator Richard Hornaday, visitors will see the transition through his early sighted career and ending as he continued to paint after losing his sight.
A reconstruction of his studio will lead the public on the journey of sightless painting every day.
The pop up hours are 9-6 p.m. On Wednesdays, and 12-6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
A panel discussion is planned for Thursday, October 29th at 7 p.m., where individuals who work with people with disabilities will talk about supporting resources.
