In 2016, the Museum adopted a new thematic collecting strategy to chart the permanent collection’s ongoing growth and interpretation. Rather than discuss the collection in chronological terms, the six broad themes are:
Art as Social Commentary
The Evolution of Mark-making
Material as Meaning
Process and Object Relationship
Many artists and their works fall within multiple categories and highlight the depth and range of their artistic practices. These themes will grow in tandem with the growth of the permanent collection.
Featured exhibitions are an ongoing part of the offerings here. With a deep commitment to enhance an understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art these exhibitions highlight parallels between the collection and the the art and artists of our present moment. See MOCA Jacksonville
Choose from a regularly scheduled 15 minute mindful moment with one work of art (during the lunch hour), or a 60 minute tour focused on one aspect of the collection. Thursday is Go Art's MOCA Jacksonville Day. However, public tours can be scheduled most days.
