Design MMoCA celebrated art and design by placing the region’s design community at center stage.  This event allowed creative professionals to create designs of unlimited vision – using works from the museum’s permanent collection as inspiration.  Design MMoCA was a unique opportunity for design professionals to develop an idea with a level of creative freedom not typically experienced in day-to-day design work.

Both a fundraiser for MMoCA and a signature event, Design MMoCA featured many activities during the nine-day showcase, include a preview gala, a series of gallery talks and panel discussions, and more. 

The Design MMoCA Showcase was open free to the public during all regular museum hours April 30-May 8, 2016.
