MOCA Jacksonville primarily collects work from 1960 to the present. The Museum’s permanent collection currently consists of nearly 1,000 works of art, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, and photography. Artists represented in the collection include Hans Hofmann, Alexander Calder, Alex Katz, Robert Longo, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, Paul Jenkins, Jules Olitski, Philip Pearlstein, Jim Dine, James Rosenquist, and Joan Mitchell. MOCA Jacksonville endeavors to create a permanent collection of significant depth, scope, and quality to be used for study, scholarly research, and exhibition – all tools that foster an education, awareness and experience with contemporary visual art.

Linda Larkin-Smith Art Acquisition Fund

We are all saddened of the loss of our good friend Linda Larkin-Smith, a valued Trustee of the Museum of Contemporary Art, and a civic leader in our community. To establish a lasting tribute in her honor, MOCA has established a special acquisition fund to purchase a piece of art for the museum’s permanent collection, where it will be featured in the galleries for all to enjoy.

This purchase will help celebrate the many contributions Linda has made to the museum and the leadership she provided to other organizations in Jacksonville. Her generosity and vision touched many, and she has left a legacy of good will and service to the community she served.

Please consider a gift to the Art Acquisition Fund for the purchase of a piece of art that will memorialize her outstanding accomplishments and will celebrate her extraordinary life. You will be notified of the purchase and invited to the installation of the work upon its selection.

Thank you for your consideration of this memorial to Linda, who will be long remembered for her many contributions to the Jacksonville community.
