First established in 1968, Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art features the work of national and international modern artists, including special exhibitions and the showcasing of work by local talents. But MOCA isn’t only a museum for visual art enthusiasts – it is a great gathering place for people who like to participate in a wide variety of activities. Lectures, film screenings, family events, readings, receptions, tours, and concerts of jazz, classical, experimental, and world music are the kinds of regular offerings that make MOCA a haven for culture vultures. Note that MOCA’s new building, at the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Mayfield Road, is under construction as of September 2011.
