SMoCA’s mission is to collect, preserve and exhibit works of modern and contemporary art, architecture and design.

The Museum’s collection includes works of art donated to the Museum or purchased for the Museum since its inception as well as historically significant, museum-quality works dating back to early donations of art made to the City of Scottsdale since 1967. The collection includes the archives of Segura Publishing Company (a mainstay of the local and international artistic community) and selected works from exhibitions organized by SMoCA. The Museum is dedicated to building a strong collection of regional, national and international significance, thus providing a legacy of art and culture for visitors.
