Although the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA) is a world-class museum filled with a remarkable array of breathtaking art, the museum seems to be facing some difficult financial times right now. Even with that being the case, MOCA passed on the chance for a merger with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
After several weeks of exploring a merger to shore up its weak financial status, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles appears to have decided to try to go it alone, releasing a statement on Tuesday announcing its intention to stay independent.
No one from the museum was available to comment, but the statement seemed a clear sign that its board had decided not to take up a merger offer extended by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, its larger neighbor.
In the statement, the board said it was “in agreement that the best future” for the museum “would be as an independent institution.”
