MOCRA presents a free public opening reception for its exhibition "Jordan Eagles: BLOOD / SPIRIT." For over a decade, artist Jordan Eagles has garnered public and critical attention for his unique, signature use of animal blood in his works. Through an experimental, self-invented process, the artist combines blood with Plexiglas, UV resin, copper, gauze, and other media to produce arresting works that both fascinate and challenge audiences. Highly textural and dimensional works, most incorporating copper, will be presented in MOCRA's side chapel galleries, while a site-specific installation of "blood illumination" pieces will be projected onto the walls and ceiling of MOCRA's balcony gallery. The centerpiece is the massive nine-panel, 32-foot-wide installation, BAR 1–9, on display in MOCRA's central nave gallery.
