In 2019, MOS is celebrating a vibrant partnership with Canal Alliance and Storek Studio/Architecture.
Ten local artists have created panels for a 240 square foot mural installed in the lobby entitled “You are Home”/“Sientete en Casa.” This unique collaborative work expresses the challenges inherent in the immigration experience, while celebrating the strength, vitality and aspirations of Marin’s immigrant communities.
Visit the mural during Marin Open Studios as well as the mural artists' studios located on the MOS map found in our Tour Guide.

To bridge the gap between the world we perceive and the reality that prompts it, we engage in a process of abstraction. Abstract art uses a visual language of shape, form, color, tone, line, and texture to construct a composition which exists with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstraction creates a world made of images that express emotion, feeling, or other concepts.
