Mission Statement

Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is a catalyst for creative experiences through the exploration of significant art of our time.

Organization History

Founded in 1972 by a group of local artists, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) has grown into one of Colorado's premier contemporary art venues. Originally called the Boulder Arts Center, the museum was housed in a small Victorian house in downtown Boulder before moving to its current location in a historic landmark building on 13th Street. In 1976, the organization moved to its current location in downtown Boulder's Civic Area.

BMoCA annually serves over 114,000 people each year with 9+ exhibitions and over 500 programs presented for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. BMoCA's 7 unique education outreach programs engage audiences of all ages with creative and contemporary art experiences with a focus on ensuring participants gain knowledge about the themes and techniques of contemporary art, as well as appreciate their own unique abilities to create art. These free access programs serve over 7,500 people.


BMoCA celebrates its 47th anniversary in 2019 and provides unparalleled opportunities for the active exploration of contemporary art. With a dynamic exhibition schedule comprised of on and off-site exhibitions, outreach and education programs, and interdisciplinary public programs, BMoCA is an integral part of the Boulder arts scene and a vital community resource for enrichment and exploration!
