Spanish Artist Dora García Asks You to Participate in Her Latest Project: I Remember Miami
During this time of social distancing in our homes, the vibrancy of Miami can feel like a distant memory. Join us in celebrating the place we love by helping to create a work of art.
The Museum of Art and Design at Miami Dade College (MOAD MDC), in collaboration with the Miami Book Fair, invites everyone to take part in the great Spanish artist Dora García’s new public artwork I Remember Miami, a participatory work that invites the public to come together in a virtual collective space of memory and connection to celebrate the experience of living in our city. Produced by the people of Miami themselves, this work records intimate memories of a vital place temporarily stilled. Read more about the project.
Share Your Memories
While we remain in our homes, I Remember Miami asks us to recall small, specific details of spaces in the city that have made lasting impressions on us and to record ourselves as we narrate our memories of being in those spaces. Participants may also submit photographs that relate to their memories. The artist will collect the audio files and photographs to compile a polyvocal archive of memories describing the expansive, richly varied, and indelible place where we live. I Remember Miami represents a hopeful gesture of solidarity and togetherness at a time of individual isolation.

When complete, the archive will be accessible on these websites: MOAD, Miami Book Fair, Dora Garcia.
