MOCA’s South Florida Cultural Consortium Exhibition Opening Reception



The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) celebrated the opening of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Exhibition, which presents works by artists exclusively from South Florida. MOCA enlisted Amy Galpin, chief curator of the Frost Art Museum, to curate this dynamic exhibition that was made possible in cooperation with Miami-Dade County’s Department of Cultural Affairs. MOCA was packed with art aficionados who browsed the exhibition while enjoying cocktails and canapés. Guests had the opportunity to meet and greet with Collection Focus: Works on Paper from the 1960s – 1980s curator Elizabeth Shannon, South Florida Cultural Consortium Exhibition curator Amy Galpin as well as the South Florida Cultural Consortium’s exhibiting artists. MOCA Executive Director Chana Sheldon was joined by MOCA Chairman William Lehman Jr. and his wife, Shirley Lehman, MOCA’s Board of Trustees Clark Reynolds, Marc Napolitano and Ruby Moise, Vice Mayor Carol Keys, the Green Family Foundation’s Executive Director Mireille Louis Charles, Kathryn Mikesell, Gary Ressler, Suzanne Delehanty, Perez Art Museum Curator Rene Morales, Art in Public Places curator Amanda Sanfilippo and Rosie Gordon Wallace.
