The Museum Shop at MOCA Jacksonville
Shopping at the Museum Shop creates a connection with the Museum and with the world of art. Named Best Museum Shop by Jacksonville Magazine, the store is considered a premier destination for those seeking unique, hand-crafted gifts and jewelry, as well as a comprehensive selection of contemporary art books—all inspired by the works of art in the collections and from past and current exhibitions.
We just received two wonderful books about Jacksonville. The first, Reclaiming Jacksonville by Ennis Davis and Robert Mann, shares stories behind some of our historic landmarks. Dorothy K. Fletcher’s Growing Up in Jacksonville: A ’50s & ’60s River City Childhood recounts the adventures and memories of those who grew up in Jacksonville at that time.

High Fashion Crime Scenes by Melanie Pullen
Melanie Pullen’s long-awaited first monograph, High Fashion Crime Scenes, presents her breathtakingly beautiful works based on vintage crime scene images, first-hand accounts, and documents Pullen mined from the files of the LAPD. In 2002, drawn to the rich details and compelling stories preserved in the criminal records, Melanie Pullen began restaging the events, outfitting the “victims” (her selected models) in current haute couture, and photographing them in her staged settings. To create this work, Pullen at times enlisted the help of up to sixty people per shoot: set builders, makeup artists, models, stylists and stunt crews, among others. Her models have included the actresses Rachel Miner and Juliet Lewis. The collection of more than one hundred images has received considerable critical acclaim in the national and international press. High Fashion Crime Scenes is presented in an oversized format, richly printed and machine varnished on matt art paper. Texts by Luke Crisell, Robert Enright and Colin Westerbeck.
There are a limited number of signed copies available.
