        Goodbye.Hello! was the theme of this year’s fundraiser for the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (MOCA). Nearly 300 supporters gathered for the final benefit at MOCA’s Carnegie Avenue location, which has been its home for 20 years.  The space, a former Sears store that was ingeniously redesigned by architect Richard Fleischman, was included in the sale of the Cleveland Play House to the Cleveland Clinic. The evening was a tribute to MOCA’s past four decades, its previous locations and to its exciting future at University Circle.
    The site of MOCA’s new permanent home, at the southeast corner of Euclid Avenue and Mayfield Road, is under construction and is projected to open in the fall of next year. Designed by Farshid Moussavi of London-based Foreign Office Architects, the black stainless steel and tinted glass building resembles a faceted gem.  
    Known for its outstanding art auction, this year’s event featured nine works of art. Deborah J. Gray, president of Gray’s Auctioneers, handled the live auction. The event raised $176,000.
