It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, a cultural resource of the University of North Florida and one of the Southeast’s largest contemporary art institutions. Situated next to James Weldon Johnson Park (formerly known as Hemming Plaza) since 2003, MOCA is dedicated to presenting innovative exhibitions by the finest international, national and regional artists of our time.
Stop in and encounter MOCA’s bold Project Atrium series, featuring site-specific and site-sensitive installations by emerging and mid-career artists. The unique placement, dimensions and scale of MOCA’s Haskell Atrium Gallery provide a compelling challenge to the chosen artist—a call to reinvention and active collaboration with the architecture of the museum on a monumental scale.
The Museum’s permanent collection consists of nearly 1,000 works of art, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, and photography. Artists represented in the collection include Hans Hofmann, Alexander Calder, Alex Katz, Robert Longo, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, Paul Jenkins, Jules Olitski, Philip Pearlstein, Jim Dine, James Rosenquist, and Joan Mitchell.
MOCA Jacksonville endeavors to create a permanent collection of significant depth, scope, and quality to be used for study, scholarly research, and exhibition – all tools that foster an education, awareness and experience with contemporary visual art.
