AMOCA’s current facility is the former headquarters of Pomona First Federal Bank and Trust. The new space, acquired in 2010, increased the net assignable square footage from 5,000 to 51,000 and provided a spacious ceramics studio. Since relocating to the current facility, individuals, foundations, and government agencies have generously contributed more than $525,000 toward capital improvements to create three exhibition galleries, a museum store, and the ceramics studio, all in support of a singular organization that champions the art, history, creation, and technology of ceramics through exhibitions, collections, educational and studio programming.
