Hudson Valley MOCA

HVMOCA is closed for installation in July and August 2024. They will be reopening with 2 new exhibitions in September 2024.

Our mission is to be a leading art center and resource for the Hudson Valley and beyond through the presentation of challenging exhibitions and programs that spark dialogue, enrich lives, and deepen our understanding of contemporary art.

Hudson Valley MOCA opened its doors to the public in March 2004, in Peekskill, New York, a multicultural Hudson River town struggling economically. The goal of HVMOCA was to use the language of art to help build cross-cultural dialogue and invigorate the community by helping to grow it as a Mecca for the arts. Since then, Peekskill has dramatically changed. In 2004 the crime rate in Peekskill was high, shops closed and only 35% of Peekskill students went on to college. Now businesses are bustling, crime is low and 85% of students go on to college, many to ivies and prestigious universities. There is a sense of open dialogue and reverence for diversity.
