The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is a dynamic venue dedicated to the presentation of significant art of our time. Through an innovative program of regional, national and international exhibition and performance, the museum inspires and educates its communities and visitors from around the world to explore the forefront and evolution of contemporary art.
BMoCA was originally called the Boulder Arts Center. It was founded in 1972 by a group of local artists as a venue to showcase and promote the visual arts in Boulder. The group moved to its current space, a warehouse-style historic landmark building, in 1976. In 1995, the organization was renamed and a series of renovation efforts expanded the facilities to include three galleries and a 100-seat black box theater. Along with the growth of the facilities, BMoCA expanded its mission to include the presentation of national and international contemporary art. The museum is committed to providing local and regional artists with a significant venue, as well as, artists who are recognized both nationally and internationally.
