MOCA Education and Visitor Engagement sparks and deepens connections between visitors and contemporary art through welcoming front-of-house operations; stimulating conversations; and sustained, enrollment-based programs designed to create lasting, transformative impact.
MOCA Education and Visitor Engagement works:
- to create a welcoming museum experience that encourages personal meaning making
- to make education more collaborative, inclusive, and learner-centered
- to nurture intellectual growth through experiences with art
- for everyone to have access to the transformative power of art
