Who We Are



More than 10,000 students visit the MCA during an average year, but the museum reaches even more students in their classrooms because of our partnerships with teachers. We work closely with teachers through our teacher programs to develop exciting new ways of looking at and thinking about contemporary art.


The teachers profiled here are a small sample of all the teachers we are proud to work with. Please note that this section is still being developed. We encourage you to come back and check out our progress.
