Founded as The New Gallery in 1968, and then renamed the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art in 1984, MOCA Cleveland continues to evolve in exciting new ways while producing original, compelling exhibitions. Over the past seven years, MOCA has become a major producer of exhibitions, which has fueled its reputation as a visionary leader. In addition to featuring the work of national and international artists, MOCA consistently showcases established and emerging artists living in the Cleveland area through continuing exhibition programs. As Cleveland's forum for interpreting culture through contemporary visual art, we connect our visitors to the dynamic art and ideas of our times. As a gathering place for experiencing contemporary art and culture, we push the boundaries of innovation, creativity and expression.
