Museum of Rescued Art (MORA) was established in an effort to rescue discarded and dispossessed art due to a variety of circumstances in which one may never truly know. Throughout history, a common thread for artists is the desire to have their story told, their works loved for years to come and to maintain a legacy. Unfortunately, those opportunities are often few and far between, however, we would like to change that.
Curious about those whose legacies might not have been well documented and those that have been forgotten, we at MORA are compelled to rescue these works of art, picking up their stories where they left off and sharing them with the community. Our main passion is rescuing and preserving art that is undervalued – not by price, but by appreciation. This exhibition with showcase some of our collection!

The exhibition explores the historical and modern day definition of the classical witch. Witches are found across cultures in Spain, Africa, North America, India, etc and share the practice of, and belief in, magical skills and abilities that can be exercised individually, by designated social groups, or by persons with the necessary esoteric secret knowledge. Witchcraft shares a common ground with related concepts such as divination, sorcery, the paranormal, magic, superstition, imparting the means to foretell future events, conjuring spirits, shamanism, healing, spiritualism, nature worship, and the occult. Witchcraft often occupies a religious, divinatory, or medicinal role, and is often present within societies and groups whose cultural framework includes a magical worldview.

An exhibition focusing on unique ways that artists merge literary works into their respective mediums. Art has continuously been linked with books, as books have continually been a magnificent contribution to the arts. Infusing both of these elements, encapsulating the importance of the two ways of expression into an exhibition where each artist uses a physical book (in part or fully) and incorporates that into their final piece.
