Through regularly scheduled events for children, teens, and adults, MOCA offers exciting programs that foster awareness of the significant art of our time. 

All programs, activities, and resources are designed to encourage discussion, transforming galleries into laboratories of ideas.

Whether bringing a student group, listening to an audio tour, or joining in an informal gallery conversation, our range of offerings allow for visitors to choose and tailor their experience.
