We mourn the loss of Noah Davis. In all of his work he brought into form the complex beauty of life.

In response to inquiries from friends and supporters at the news of artist Noah Davis’ passing this weekend:
Noah’s wife Karon plans to complete the Underground Museum’s community garden in his honor. For the moment, the family requests that donations be sent to - or dropped off at - the following address:

The Underground Museum
3508 W. Washington Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90018

Noah Davis, 32, was an L.A.-based artist and founder of artists space The Underground Museum. MOCA is honored to have had the opportunity to work with Noah in his lifetime. Please spread this message and consider donating to the Underground Museum. Despite his passing, Noah’s vision lives on. He will be missed dearly.
