The MOCA GA Working Artist Project is a year long program that supports metropolitan Atlanta visual artists, expands the Museum's mission, and strengthens the arts and cultural component of Atlanta. Each funded year, MOCA GA holds a metro-wide competition to select three working artists based on their talent, professionalism, and their proven ability to complete the project.
Representing our city's best and brightest; these artists will be supported with a solo exhibition, promotion, a studio assistant, catalogue, and a major stipend to create work over the course of the year. The Project encourages artists from Atlanta and other cities to see our city as a viable destination in which their careers can thrive. At the same time, the Project will help raise the recognition of metropolitan Atlanta as a major center for contemporary art.
