MOCA presents programs throughout the year, geared toward all audiences: educational programs for students, parents and teachers to social, nightlife events for adults.

If you're looking for deep insight into the latest MOCA exhibitions, keep an eye out for artist talks and gallery tours. One Hour | One Work is an opportunity to focus, with the guidance of MOCA's curator of education, on one piece in an exhibition for (as the name suggests) one hour. Discover what can be learned from an open conversation based on observations!

The MOCA ArtSquad's Beauregard and Cherry are here to help MOCA's newest and youngest art lovers to LOOK. THINK. SHARE. Preschool playdates are a chance to start imaginations thriving from the very start.

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.

Contemporary art may move quickly, but there are great benefits to slowing down to interpret it. This adult educational program invites participants to intentionally reduce their “speed reading” and spend considerable time with a single work on view.
