GOCAIA, the Gallery of Contemporary And Indigenous Art, brings people to downtown Tucson. The
gallery, which has non-profit status, raises money for the community. Its first season showcases works by artists from diverse backgrounds, including Native American, African American, and Hispanic. A portion of GOCAIAs revenue is donated to community organizations. They are hosting a juried exhibition April 28 through May 20, 2001. The show is themed Mish, Mosh and More - an exploration of modern multi- and mixed- media artwork.
