“Places in Cleveland, OH”
The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, better known by its acronym, MOCA, is a contemporary art museum located in Cleveland, Ohio. Founded in 1968 by Marjorie Talalay, Agnes Gund, and Nina Castelli Sundell as The New Gallery, the museum was renamed the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art in 1984. In order to expand its exhibition space, in 1990 the museum moved to a former Sears store on Carnegie Avenue that is now part of the Cleveland Play House complex which was renovated by Richard Fleischman + Partners Architects, Inc. to retrofit the space. In 2002, CCCA changed its name to Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland. On October 8, 2012 the new $27.2 million home for MOCA opened to the public at the corner of Mayfield Road and Euclid Avenue. The new building was designed by world-famous Iranian born London architect Farshid Moussavi.
