Mission Statement

The mission of the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit is to present art at the forefront of contemporary culture. As a non-collecting institution, MOCAD is responsive to the cultural content of our time, fueling crucial dialogue, collaboration, and public engagement.

Description

Located on Woodward and Garfield between the DSO and the DIA, Wayne State University and the College for Creative Studies, the Museum is an innovative addition to Detroit's Cultural Center, and functions as a hub for the exploration of emerging ideas in the contemporary arts. The 22,000 square foot building, a former auto dealership, has been simply renovated to maintain it's historic character. With its raw, flexible and cavernous spaces, the building is well-suited to the exhibition of contemporary art. The bookstore includes merchandise not sold in the metropolitan area, including specialized art and culture magazines, journals, books and limited edition artists t-shirts and other functional objects.
