The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP) is a stimulating and innovative forum for the collection, creation, and examination of contemporary imagemaking in its camera tradition and in its expanded vocabulary of digital processes. Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the museum considers all elements of our mission to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of the artistic, cultural and political implication of the image in our world today, within the context of public service and responsibility to the community and museum profession.

The Museum is committed to broadening the visual arts by constantly searching for new national and international talent to exhibit rather than simply following suit established by larger institutions. To this end, the museum’s programming guides the public to a greater understanding of thought-provoking contemporary photography as well as an appreciation for traditional work that has not yet received critical acclaim.

The Museum of Contemporary Photography’s permanent collection focuses on American and U.S. resident photography since 1936. More than 7,000 photographs and photographically related objects reflect the craft’s diverse capacities for artistic expression, documentation, and communication. They include gelatin-silver prints, color work, digital pieces, photograms, and a host of alternative processes. Likewise, a spectrum of three-dimensional objects informed by and incorporating photography are also represented in the collection, from lightboxes to sculpture. The work of international artists and sample works from the nineteenth century complement and complete the collection.
