MOCA LATTE OR MACCHIATO

There is a place in North Miami worth making mention and it does not get enough credit, The Museum of Contemporary Art which opened its doors in February 1996.  The structure was designed by Charles Gwathmey  in collaboration with the Miami firm of Gelabert-Navia.    

The purpose of the museum was to create an incredible space for exhibiting the work of contemporary masters, discovering new artists, and learning about art and its heritage.  The museum is known for its innovative exhibitions and maintains an active schedule which can be seen in their website.

The mission of the Museum of Contemporary Art is to make contemporary art accessible to diverse audiences--especially under-served populations--by exploring the art of our time and its relationship to a broader cultural context. The museum is particularly interested in providing a forum for young and emerging artists and in presenting and collecting the works by local as well as internationally recognized artists. The Museum carries out this mission through exhibitions and acquiring works for its permanent collection as well as related symposia, publications, films, lectures, performances, and educational outreach activities, thereby providing a forum for dialogue about contemporary art in the community.”

The museum is now complimented by its satellite branch MOCA at Goldman Warehouse located in the Wynwood Arts and Entertainment district of Miami which doubles the museum’s current gallery space and adds 4,000 square feet of art storage.

 

There are many ways to support MoCa, you can join as a member or become a patron of its many benefit events, collections or educational programs.

 Hi Ines, after seeing your previous post on Art Deco and now this one on MOCA, it seems you have an eye for art so I thought I'd pass on a link to one of my favorite painters...

 Gil Bruvel at Bruvel.com He has one of the most incredible imaginations I've ever come across in the art world and an equally impressive  technique to execute his ideas. Enjoy...

Kristal - what's incredible and innovative about MoCa is the events and memberships that bring people from all over South Florida - Talking about exposing the arts!

Marti - that's the second painter you introduce me too that I did not know about.  It's funny how I've studied the classics but the contemporaries I know from exhibits I visit.  Really interesting nudes - thanks for sharing.

Rich - you rock!  what's a "grande drip with a shot in the dark?"  Coffee lovers are so funny.

Angela - I will definitely make a point to visit the Vero Beach Museum next time we go.  My kids love to boogie board because your waves are amazing.

I'm really enjoying the tour of your city through your blog. I love museums, unfortunately, my better half likes to spend her time shopping instead.

That's an idea Peter, maybe I'll do a tour of shopping in Miami.  That's really sounds like fun!

You know, if you ever get tired of real estate, you could head the Florida Dept of Tourism! Great post!
