Founded in 2001 by a group of arts benefactors and enthusiasts, the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art (iMOCA) began as – and still remains – Indianapolis’ only museum dedicated solely to showing and advancing contemporary art. As a non-collecting institution, iMOCA’s mission is to bring contemporary exhibitions and programs to the Indianapolis community to stimulate minds, inspire new discoveries and demonstrate the vital connections between visual culture and life.
