Why are you called the Museum of Outdoor Arts, if you have indoor galleries?
Outdoor sculptures and installations comprise of about 85% of the permanent collection. Our indoor exhibitions are often inspired by or relate to the outdoors.
When the organization was founded in 1981, MOA had only a small collection of sculptures located outdoors. The organization has since grown to include an indoor gallery, where we curate temporary exhibitions and host an array of events, workshops and other educational offerings.
Today, the Museum of Outdoor Arts is often referred to as “MOA.” This is because the organization has grown in its near 40 year history to offer so much more than just outdoor art.
There is free street and lot parking near Marjorie Park and the park and Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre are also accessible via the Arapahoe Light Rail Station.
