of Private Matching Funds Remaining
MOAD's mission is to provide open, critical, and collaborative frameworks for artistic experimentation and interdisciplinary risk-taking that explores the intersections of art, design, and other art forms with cultural action. The Museum of Art and Design advances Miami Dade College’s core values, contributing to the intellectual life of the college, engaging students and audiences from the community and the world beyond. MOAD programs and exhibitions offer South Florida’s diverse community broad and varied exhibitions and public engagement programs. Funding will directly support programming at the museum, located in the historic Freedom Tower as well as at Miami Dade College campuses and at satellite locations throughout Miami-Dade County. All exhibitions, lectures, and workshops are open to the public.

A City of the People/La Ciudad de la Gente follows up Living Together, MOAD’s acclaimed year-long 2018 series that dynamically bridged the gap in Museum programming during recent renovations. Living Together brought 17 of today’s most renowned artists, musicians, writers, and thinkers to Miami for 20 separate events at 14 different venues. Among the highlights of the Living Together series, MOAD presented the sold-out performances Past Tense by MacArthur “genius” award winner Carrie Mae Weems and Karen Finley’s political satire Unicorn Gratitude Mystery. The series also included two unprecedented and innovative exhibitions that concluded MOAD’s 2017–2018 season: Venice Biennial Gold Lion Award winner Tino Sehgal’s multidisciplinary exhibition This Situation and renowned South African artist William Kentridge’s More Sweetly Play the Dance. Living Together was realized with highly successful partnerships that greatly expanded the reach, resources, funding, and impact of the programs.
