See contemporary artwork from 1960 to the present! MOCA Jacksonville’s collections include painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and video, and the work of artists such Robert Rauschenberg and Paul Jenkins. Guided tours offer a great way for your group to learn about modern art with hands-on activities. Some topics include how to talk about modern art, the role that science and math play in printing and photography, and how to render a still life subject in different styles of art. Younger visitors can create their own art while learning basic art principles, and why modern artists use them in unconventional ways.
