It’s the most wonderful time of the year when we celebrate women all around the world!
And what better way to celebrate than to appreciate female artists throughout the month of March at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami?
All month long, the museum at 770 NE 125th St. is offering free public programming for the community to enjoy.
If you head to MOCA this month, you’ll find the “My Name is Maryan” exhibition on display by ground-breaking Polish-born artist Maryan. The exhibit features four decades of paintings, sculptures, drawings and film by the iconoclast and runs through March 20, 2022.
If you’re interested in the robust programming happening at the museum in honor of Women’s Month, here’s what is going on! Best of all it’s all free. For more information, click here.
