Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art (FMCA), the museum’s oldest auxiliary, supports and enhances the DIA’s James Pearson Duffy Department of ​Modern and Contemporary Art by promoting a better understanding of modern and contemporary art. FMCA also creates fundraising initiatives that contribute to the purchases of important new works of art in diverse mediums. 

The FMCA has commissioned several works from leading contemporary artists, including Yoko Ono and Robert Morris.
