Campaign For A Home

MOCA’s Capital Campaign for a Home is a generational opportunity for MOCA to boldly claim its place within the American cultural narrative and safeguard the stories, legacies, and experiences of the Chinese in America. In the wake of a three-story five alarm fire in January 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, and increased anti-Chinese bigotry, MOCA’s place within the cultural landscape is more important and urgent than ever. An updated and expanded national Museum of Chinese in America will make a defiant and celebratory statement in the fight against anti-Asian discrimination and ensure the museum’s sustainability within the New York cultural landscape.

A Historic Moment

For the first time, MOCA is uniting the visionary designs of artist and architect, Maya Lin, with the cutting-edge innovation of Ralph Applebaum Associates to revolutionize a museum that integrates the past, present, and future aspirations of the Chinese American journey. This collaboration will result in an icon in New York City and will propel MOCA to new heights as a museum of conscience that is transnational in scope and impact.
