The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (NMOCA) has one of the top internationally acclaimed collections of emerging and established artists today. Public Art Review magazine named JCCC as one of the top 10 university/college campuses for public art in America, citing the sculptures, paintings, ceramics, photography and works on paper installed throughout the campus. The museum presents many of the region’s most important exhibitions of leading-edge contemporary art, as well as dynamic and diverse educational programming.

The museum has received national and international acclaim for its architecture, exhibitions, educational programming and collection, including both the JCCC Collection and the Oppenheimer Collection, since opening in fall 2007. With more than 100,000 visitors annually, the museum is regarded as one of the region’s most significant cultural destinations.

The mission of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and its campuswide art installation program is to be an interdisciplinary academic resource for students and faculty, and a cultural center for exhibiting, interpreting, collecting and preserving works of contemporary art in a wide range of media.

With a commitment to serving both this and future generations, the Nerman Museum’s primary roles are to:

  • Educate students, the college community and the public about the art of their time by maintaining an art acquisition and exhibition program, and related educational programming focused on contemporary art.
  • Provide a campuswide art installation program that incorporates art into the daily lives of students, serves as a readily accessible resource for academic instruction and community engagement, and accommodates the growing collection.
