You won't find a group of people more devoted to MOCA Jacksonville than its Board of Trustees. These passionate community members give their time and donate their money to support the exhibitions, programs, and education initiatives that allow MOCA to bring the art, artists, and ideas of our time to Northeast Florida. We asked them to share some of the reasons why each says #ibelieveinMOCA.
