The city of Miami stands out as an epicenter for artistic prowess and cultural initiatives for art and musical expression. Being one of the cultural pillars of the city, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is back with two events to unravel a new artistic sense for residents of the Magic City.
A new project is being added to MOCA’s “Art on the Plaza” series, Autumn Casey’s “Clint and April.” The sculptural installation, illuminated within via solar-powered lights, encapsulates the themes of love and human connection via two swans together as a metaphor since swans mate for life. Drawing on the ambiguity of personal memory and reflections on the world, her work creates a tender space for personal reflection.
A native-born Floridian, Casey’s work has been featured in exhibits in various museums and galleries including the Pérez Art Museum Miami, MOCA, Vox Populi, Practice Gallery at Philadelphia and many more.
Her art will be placed for public viewing between July 29 to Oct. 7 as part of the "Art of the Plaza" series.

Another event that's on the horizon is the Jazz at MOCA concert series held on the last Friday of every month. On July 29, The French Horn Collective is paying a visit to perform a myriad of amazing music from their catalogs ranging in genres such as Gypsy jazz, swing and modern original French music.
Led by Vincent Raffard, you can count on having a night to remember this Friday. For more information on the upcoming outdoor concert, visit the website to set a reservation.
