In 2021, the museum inaugurated Art on the Plaza, a series of temporary public art installations on MOCA’s Plaza, that invites artists to activate the space. The 2023 series features South Florida artists: Edison Peñafiel, LIZN’BOW (Liz Ferrer and Bow Ty), Sterling Rook and Chris Friday. Starting March 2023, site-specific works from a different artist will be highlighted for three months at a time.
Open Call for Art on the Plaza 2024 Artist Submissions
Calling all South Florida-based artists: submit your proposal for the 2024 Art on the Plaza series by 11:59 p.m. on December 29, 2023.
The Art on the Plaza program invites artists to activate MOCA’s Plaza with temporary public installations of site-specific art works, engaging and connecting the community with their unique and inspiring works of art.
This year, three artists will be selected for installations that will remain on view for four months. Each selected artist will be supported by MOCA through the fabrication, installation, and programming for their project.
Across the plaza, artworks could incorporate the building’s façade, architecture, the central fountain and include free-standing elements or light-based projections. Alongside the installations, the museum will host relevant programming to coincide with each artist’s occupation of the space throughout the year.
Interested artists can submit their qualifying materials electronically through the application portal. The deadline for submission of art project proposals is 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 29, 2023. Submissions will be reviewed by a MOCA-appointed committee and selections will be announced on January 27, 2024.
