Cancellation policy

MoPA reserves the right to cancel an event if the facilities are, in the sole judgment of the Museum Director, deemed unsuitable for the event due to fire or other calamity, act of God, or any other occurrences beyond the control of the Museum. In such an event, the Renter will not be liable for payment of fees and the Museum will coordinate to provide another suitable time for rescheduling. MoPA reserves the right to cancel an event at any point if the Renter fails to comply with the Museum’s established Policies and Procedures. Such cancellation will result in the forfeiture of all fees paid and the event will not be rescheduled.

Additional information

Since its founding in 1983, the Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) has been devoted to collecting, conserving and exhibiting the entire spectrum of the photographic medium. The museum’s endeavors consistently address cultural, historical and social issues through its exhibitions and public programs (all of which are described in detail throughout this site). MoPA is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is a member-supported, private, nonprofit institution. Additional support for museum programs is provided by the City of San Diego under a program managed by its Commission for Arts and Culture, the Community Enhancement Program of the County of San Diego, as well as the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
