About the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA)
The Museum of Photographic Arts, or MOPA, is a vibrant center for visual learning located in Balboa Park. Since its founding in 1983, the museum’s endeavors consistently address cultural, historical and social issues through its exhibitions and educational programs. The venue for the U.S. premiere, MOPA selected 7 billion Others as its leading exhibition for Balboa Park’s Centennial that commemorates the 1915 Panama-California Exposition.
More Than An Exhibition
MOPA and the GoodPlanet Foundation have come together around a common initiative: to raise awareness of the richness of life and the need to live together in peace. The enthusiasm and professionalism of the museum teams is allied to an unwavering desire to be part of their environment, to involve surrounding communities and to help the least advantaged. Interactive and educational activities resulting from in-depth consideration and a humanist vision of the world further enrich the exhibition experience.
