Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego
Founded in 1941, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego's mission is to preserve, collect, and interpret art created since 1950. It has two branches, one in La Jolla and the other in downtown San Diego. The museum contains a collection of 4,700 works consisting of paintings, photographs, video, installations, sculpture, and works on paper. It is strong in minimalism and pop art from the 1960s to today, installation art, and from California and the San Diego/Tijuana region. In addition to its collection, the museum offers a wide variety of educational and public programming for visitors of all ages. As of 2018, the La Jolla location is undergoing a major expansion project and is closed.
