More than just photography, the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) seeks to inspire and empower audiences by promoting critical thought and cultivating the meaningful exchange of ideas. One of only three museums in the nation dedicated solely to lens-based medium, they serve over 100,000 visitors annually. By teaching visual literacy through programs designed to engage and inspire audiences of all ages, MOPA expands their participants’ abilities to see, discuss and create images with a critical perspective. They offer an annual calendar of relevant, thought-provoking and engaging exhibitions, film festivals and lifespan-learning opportunities.
