MOCA North Miami Seeks Artists for Art on the Plaza Series

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) has launched an open call to South Florida-based artists to submit their work for MOCA’s 2023 Art on the Plaza series. Art on the Plaza features a series of temporary public art installations on MOCA North Miami’s front plaza, inviting artists to enhance the space and connect the museum to the community. The 2022 series featured South Florida artists, including Onajide Shabaka, Autumn Casey and VantaBlack.

Artists are invited to make proposals for temporary public art installations spanning three to four months. Each selected artist can be awarded up to $13,000. A MOCA-appointed selection committee will review artist proposals. Selected artists will implement projects with the support of MOCA staff. The museum will host a programming series to coincide with the art installations throughout the year. 

Selected artworks will be displayed on MOCA’s plaza, including but not limited to:

  • The building façade or architecture
