Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Cleveland

The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, better known as MOCA, was founded in 1968 by Marjorie Talalay, Agnes Gund and Nina Castelli Sundell as the New Gallery. It was renamed the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art in 1984. In 1990 the museum moved to its present location and in 2002 got its present name. Works by such artists as Andy Warhol, Christo and Claes Oldenburg are shown regularly, and past exhibits have featured art by Jim Hodges and Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson, among others.

The museum has a special focus on artists from Greater Cleveland and Northeastern Ohio. During the course of its three annual exhibition seasons, MOCA presents works by emerging local artists through the PULSE series and works by local female artists under 30 through the Wendy L. Moore Emerging Artist Series.
