Permanent Collection Gets Permanent Exhibition

For decades, Miami Dade College has collected works by prominent artists of the past and present for its Permanent Art Collection. They grace the grounds of the College’s seven campuses and make periodic appearances at campus galleries and the MDC Museum of Art + Design (MOA+D) at the Freedom Tower – a structure formidable in itself for its architectural beauty and National Historic Landmark status. This fall, long-held pieces and new additions alike will claim a permanent place in two new, dedicated spaces at MOA+D.

These long-format installations will include works by Alex Katz, Ana Mendieta, Andres Serrano, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Pat Lipsky, Louise Nevelson, Roy Lichtenstein and William Wegman, as well as recently acquired works by William Cordova, Lynne Golob Gelfman, Richard Haas, Elena Sisto, Duane Hanson, Arnold Mesches, Robert Thiele and Jaimie Warren, among others.“It is timely in nature that the Museum presents a formal exhibition of its extensive collection and holdings through dedicated collection galleries,” said Jeremy Mikolajczak, MOA+D executive director and chief curator.
“Miami Dade College has been collecting art for over 50 years and has a long tradition of acquiring engaging and important works of art and design. As an actively collecting institution, we are excited to bring this important aspect of the Museum to the public.”
