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 50 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.
Gifts to MOCA 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. Visit our donate page to learn more about supporting MOCA.


Sponsorships are critical to MOCA Cleveland’s ability to present outstanding exhibitions and public programs, and to provide art education to school children and their families. Through a variety of social and marketing opportunities, sponsors have the ability to share their message with culturally-engaged audiences, while providing vital financial support to the only museum in Northeast Ohio dedicated solely to contemporary art. MOCA Cleveland thanks its current sponsors.

MOCA Cleveland invites individuals and businesses to partner with the Museum through numerous sponsorship opportunities. To explore sponsorship opportunities, contact the Development Office at 216.421.8671.
