MOCA Cleveland is bolstered by the many varieties of support. Becoming a member, making a donation, training to be a docent or volunteering your time helps MOCA to remain a Cleveland institution that will continue to grow and, in turn, help Cleveland to continue to grow. 


Membership at MOCA connects you to Northeast Ohio’s only contemporary art museum, and exclusive member privileges such as first and free access to MOCA exhibitions and artists; education, performance, and social programs; and tours designed just for you. With a MOCA Membership, art, music, dance, film, Curator + Artist Talks, and more are at your fingertips. 


For 45 years, MOCA, Northeast Ohio’s only contemporary art museum, has brought the art and ideas of our time to Cleveland and beyond. MOCA was the first in the region to exhibit the works of vanguard artists like Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Laurie Anderson, Roy Lichtenstein, and Christo; and we continue to bring the work of emerging and established regional, national, and international artists to our area.  
Unrestricted gifts to MOCA’s Annual Fund not only help us bring the best contemporary art and artists to our community, but also help us underwrite daily museum functions and behind-the-scenes necessities such as building maintenance, helping ensure that each visitor has a top-notch visit.  Annual Fund gifts support all museum activities, including educational school programs and a variety of public programs for people of all ages and walks of life. 
Your unrestricted Annual Fund gift will be applied where it is needed most, and will stand as a vote of confidence for MOCA, a cultural leader and respected resource for the region.

Gifts to the Annual Fund and Comprehensive Campaign are 100% tax-deductible and do not qualify as a membership gift or renewal.
