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.
