The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia
MOCA GA was founded in 2000 out of recognition of the relative void in opportunities across Georgia to learn about and view contemporary art, and specifically contemporary art from Georgia artists. The museum opened its doors to the public in February 2002. The mission of MOCA GA is to collect and archive significant contemporary works by artists from the state of Georgia. To place our artists in a global context, the museum’s exhibitions include artists from around the world in addition to Georgia artists. The museum’s programs promote the visual arts by creating a forum for active exchange between artists and the community. MOCA GA fulfills its mission through an active exhibition schedule, a growing permanent collection and the Education/Resource Center, which houses the museum’s historical archive collection. Since its opening MOCA GA has presented 72 solo and group exhibitions focused on excellence of work, explorations of media and issues in contemporary society.
