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.

Pay what you can ($5 suggested donation, free for members)

8:30pm Films begin

You provide the film, we provide the projector, and the audience provides the cheers, jeers, or curious silence. Open Projector Night brings experts and novices together to share and review a diverse range of original short films, open mic-style. All genres are welcome from experimental pieces to animated narratives, so there’s no telling where the night will go. Films must be 10-minutes or less and are added to the line-up on a first-come, first-served basis until we reach a 60-minute program.
