Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art


Virginia MOCA is home to the vibrant art of today as well as welcome to what art can be. We’re rooted in community and we work hard to do right by it—with our eyes on a more expansive art world and compassionate culture. Here, art can be mysterious, but never exclusive. Here, art makes way for us to connect.

As a contemporary, non-collecting museum, we are what we curate. We seek out the most soulful, rigorous art and artists, adapting and reinventing our space with each exhibition, because we believe in a shared space between different perspectives. As an accredited member of the America Alliance of Museums, we will continue to work tirelessly to share what we know, what we’re learning and how best to navigate the art world. We are here to add meaning to the very idea of what a museum is. This is where art works its magic.
