The GOCA Vision

We can see the future: GOCA will be the leader in producing and providing access to significant contemporary art experiences of national and international relevance in the region.

Most importantly, GOCA is a social place. We're an institution that's about you, our friends and visitors. When we think about upcoming exhibitions and lectures, we're thinking about you and what you might think is cool/fun/challenging/exciting/new. We're a place for the people, where exhibitions are free, refreshments are plentiful and humor is welcome.
 

Our Goals

  1. Offer

    Diverse opportunities for visitors to engage with new ideas, aesthetics and cultural perspectives through exhibitions, programs, lectures

  2. Promote

    And exhibit excellent work in contemporary visual art

  3. Emphasize

    Work outside the gallery through site-­specific installations, performances and happenings

  4. Increase

    Public awareness and support for GOCA

  5. Collect

    And analyze visitor feedback
