On December 7, 1968, three intrepid women--Marjorie Talalay, Nina Sundell, and Aggie Gund--opened The New Gallery, Cleveland’s first art gallery dedicated solely to global contemporary art. Fifty years later, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland continues to champion vanguard artists from across the globe while remaining rooted in our city.

Sustaining this legacy in the present and future would not be possible without you and your generous contribution.  What is one way your annual fund gift makes a daily impact? 

Last summer, we went free for 18 and under. Since then, we have seen a 178% increase in the number of youth visiting the Museum. Nearly 6,000 young people have benefited from their encounters with new art and ideas.  We provided free tours to over 2,000 youth through our school to museum outreach.

From our humble beginnings in a fraternity house on Bellflower Road to the recent opening of our now iconic building, our remarkable journey has touched thousands and garnered a loyal and curious community. Thank you for being part of moCa’s past, present, and future.
