Local architect, Frank Gehry, converted the former warehouse.Both MOCA buildings are home to one of the country's finest permanent collections of art since 1940, ranging from abstract expressionist and pop art to recent works by young artists.Each year the museum presents more than 20 exhibitions, including historical and thematic shows, one-person retrospectives, newly commissioned projects and works by emerging and established artists. These feature not only painting, sculpture and drawing, but also video, photography, film, music, dance, performance, design, architecture and new forms that combine various disciplines.
