MOCA Cleveland presents programs throughout the year, geared toward all audiences. Artist talks, gallery tours and programs like One Hour | One Work make learning about current exhibitions exciting. The MOCA ArtSquad's Beauregard and Cherry are here to help our newest and youngest art lovers to LOOK. THINK. SHARE. MOCA also knows how to throw a party from time to time. Bring your friends and enjoy a night on the town in the iconic MOCA building with innovations on nightlife inspired by the art in the galleries.
