“The contemporary museum’s [MOCA] exhibitions and collections are surely among the top reasons that Los Angeles is home to several generations of important artists. Any Los Angeles museum that is currently thriving…is to some extent standing on the contemporary museum’s shoulders.”

– The New York Times

Membership Levels

Become a member today and receive enhanced access and benefits to MOCA, The Museum of Contemporary Art. Established in 1979, we house one of the most compelling collections of contemporary art in the world, comprising over 7,000 objects.  We have a diverse history of groundbreaking, historically significant exhibitions and we engage our audiences through award-winning education programs, original scholarship, and publishing.

MOCA is an independent nonprofit contemporary art museum. Over 85% of our annual funding comes from philanthropic gifts, like membership. Your membership support is critical to the museum and it's ability to make an impact.

For more information on the benefits of joining Membership, please contact Asa Hursh, Membership and Annual Fund Manager (213/621-1752).

BONUS: Last year, members received bonus benefits valued at over $190, including complimentary tickets to art fairs, dance parties, a record and music fair, guided meditations, and the opening preview party for the LA Art Book Fair.
