A small but great museum of modern art
If you want to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art you will have to go to the north of Miami. This museum opened in 1996, as an extension and expansion of the Centre of Contemporary Art which had been open since 1981. MOCA, as it is popularly known, specializes in exhibiting contemporary art, so it shows the work of up-and-coming artists as well as the work of the great masters of the discipline. Its permanent collection includes works by local and international artists, but, as well, it regularly hosts temporary exhibitions which have included such great names as Roy Lichtenstein and Louise Bourgeois. As if the delicious artistic menu weren’t enough, this gallery also has an interesting cultural programme, with talks, debates and on the last Friday of every month free, open-air jazz concerts.
