Description
Exterior view of the Museum of Contemporary Art, with a view of the Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen sculpture titled "Knife/Ship II". This sculpture was created in 1986 with wood, steel, and aluminum and was painted with polyurethane enamel. It measures 35 1/2 x 83 x 31 3/4 feet. The Museum of Contemporary Art, or MOCA, was founded in the spring of 1979. It is the only museum in Los Angeles devoted exclusively to contemporary art, and has developed one of the nation's most renowned permanent collections, now numbering over 5,000 works. The museum has three separate facilities: MOCA Grand Avenue (pictured here) located in the California Plaza at 250 South Grand Avenue; The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA; and MOCA at The Pacific Design Center. The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, located in the Little Tokyo district, is the largest of the three.
