The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is a nonprofit institution founded in 1952 to foster awareness, exploration and understanding of the significant art of our time. Regularly changing exhibitions feature painting, sculpture, photography, glass, video and other visual media from internationally acclaimed artists as well as artists of national and regional renown. By balancing its four primary activities--gallery exhibitions, studio art classes, educational outreach programs and outdoor art shows--MOCA seeks to involve a diverse regional public in the rich and active language of contemporary visual art. MOCA's nationally-ranked Boardwalk Art Show is the City of Virginia Beach's oldest event, taking place annually on Father's Day Weekend. By operating at a National Standard, MOCA received accreditation from American Alliance of Museums in 2010. Certified "Virginia Green."
