MDC Sculpture Park

The recipient of numerous private donations in recent years, North Campus' sprawling grounds double as the Miami International Sculpture Park (MISP), home to 69 contemporary and modern sculptures placed throughout the campus' 243 acres and accessible free of charge to all visitors year-round.

Most visible for its spectacular size and scope is the Halegua Collection. Donated over the past five years by international sculptor Alfredo Halegua and his wife, Dr. Raquel Halegua, the collection is comprised of monumental modernist sculpture as well as smaller abstract works. MISP visitors also enjoy sculptures by Mario Almaguer and William King.

More recent additions to the campus' inventory of public art include Learning Gives You Wings, a sculptural installation by Rafael Consuegra that scales the height of Building 1; The Philosopher, a bronze by late South Florida artist Rose Alterman; Niños, a group of sculptures by international sculptor dEmo, and a collection of sculptures made by artists from around the world as part of MDC’s collaborative efforts with the nonprofit International Solidarity for Human Rights.
