Heidi Macdonald has more on the surprise closure of MoCCA’s physical space, including a statement from the organization:
While the physical space is closing, plans are afoot to continueMoCCA in a new and exciting incarnation. An announcement of MoCCA’s future arrangements will be forthcoming by the end of July.
Current memberships will be honored at the new venue, as will table renewals forMoCCA Fest 2013.
That the space was closed effective immediately with little warning remains more than a little troubling, but Macdonald notes that “MoCCA president Ellen Abramowitz has a background in real estate and brokered the museum’s past deal, so she’s the right person for the job of finding a new spot for the museum.” Hopefully, more on this story will come out either during or, more likely, after San Diego Comic-Con.
