The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami has announced an open call to South Florida-based artists to submit their work for MOCA's 2023 Art on the Plaza series.

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 in duration. Each selected artist can be awarded up to $13,000.

The museum will host a series of programming to coincide with the art installations throughout the year.

Selected art works will be displayed on MOCA's plaza, including but not limited to:

  • The building façade or architecture
  • Interventions within or incorporating the fountain
  • Free standing elements
  • Light based artworks/projections
  • Artworks adhering to social distancing guidelines
