MOCA GA is located within the split-level MOCA GA/TULA complex at 75 Bennett Street. The upper floor is located at street level, and the lower floor at terrace level. The museum consists of two separate exhibition spaces, one on each floor.
The gallery space on the Upper Level is reserved for rotating solo and group exhibitions. Visitors will find shows highlighting local Georgia artists, including new works by Working Artist Project Fellows, retrospectives, group shows, and much more!
The Lower Level is primarily dedicated to the permanent collection and Education / Research Center of MOCA GA. Within each rotating exhibition, MOCA GA prominently features Georgia artists at various stages of their careers.
Education / Research Center (E/RC)
In addition to acquisition of works of art and promotion of artists, MOCA GA is also dedicated to education. The Education/Resource Center (E/RC) has been a central element to the museum since its establishment in 2002, which was made possible through the generous funding from the Forward Arts Foundation. Annette Cone-Skelton envisioned the E/RC as an accessible space to preserve and the rich legacy of Georgia arts. Following a 2014 capital campaign, the museum expanded the E/RC to create a permanent collection exhibition space, digital resource bank for scholarly research, expanded art library, video installation room, and increased storage space for the growing collection.
The space is also available for community meetings of all types, which promotes the museum’s the vision that the E/RC continue to expand as a destination for students, scholars, and the community to experience and study the history of art in Georgia. MOCA GA houses a digital historical archive on an online platform, containing over 150,000 items documenting the history of Georgia artists and arts organizations.
