The Los Ageles County Museum of Art Bids to Take Over Los Angeles’ Imploding Museum of Contemprary Art

mocaPerhaps forming the Los Angeles County Museum of Contemporary Art, LACMOCA, and saving two letters!? Talk about merging the two institutions has bobbed to the surface before, most recently in 2008, just before MOCA was rescued by billionaire Eli broad, but this time the idea was initiated by the MOCA board itself.
