In 1995, Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) became a collecting institution at a time when no other museum in Miami-Dade County was assembling a collection that documented contemporary art. MOCA’s reputation for discerning curatorial vision immediately attracted the support of South Florida’s community leaders.

Through generous donations provided by long-time supporters such as Mr. Richard and Mrs. Ruth Shack, Mr. Marvin and Mrs. Ruth Sackner, and Dr. Arturo and Mrs. Liza Mosquera, as well as museum purchases, MOCA has built a strong collection of sculptures, paintings, and works on paper.

MOCA is home to a collection of over 400 works by local, national, and international contemporary artists including Pablo Cano, Teresita Fernandez, Keith Haring, Alex Katz, Edward Ruscha, and George Segal. 

The collection’s importance is evidenced by extensive loans to London’s Tate Modern, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Barcelona’s Contemporary Art Museum among others, and inclusion in scholarly publications.
