MOPA Creates New Department of Visual Learning

At a time of transition within cultural organizations, the Museum of Photographic Arts re-evaluated the roles of education and exhibitions with the creation of a new department.

The Department of Visual Learning will further MOPA’s center for visual learning, established in 2014, with the merger of two traditionally separate areas. The overall goal is to strengthen the museum’s ability to provide a more integrated and vital approach to the guest experience.

“These changes support the work we have been doing in redefining the museum’s role in response to our changing demographics as well as photography’s transformation as the most important medium of contemporary communication,” said MOPA Executive Director Deborah Klochko. “There is a new future emerging that explores the power of the medium to make change and impact society.”
