In the Community

At MOCA, we believe art has the power to connect people, enrich lives, and extend beyond our museum walls. By engaging with schools, senior centers, and community organizations, we aim to weave art into the fabric of our community, sparking curiosity, lively conversations, and strengthening our shared connections. Join us on an exciting journey, cultivating a lifelong love for art that reaches into the heart of our community.
