History:
The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) was founded in 1901 as the Madison Art Association.  The organization grew steadily over the years and, in 1980, moved into the Madison Civic Center to accommodate its growing collection and programs.  In 1998, the organization began a major period of expansion, becoming a founding member of Overture Center for the Arts.  In 2006, this period culminated in the newly-renamed MMoCA moving into its present 51,500 square foot facility in the Overture Center.  Since opening at Overture, MMoCA has welcomed over one million visitors.
