In a new partnership with the Arango Design Foundation, MOA+D is boosting its design programming with a dedicated gallery scheduled to open in spring 2016.

MOA+D’s Permanent Art Collection contains more than 2,000 objects and artifacts, including a diverse collection of design objects that will get a spot in the limelight at the new design gallery.

“Miami Dade College is consistently on the forefront of innovative public education programs and this new initiative will engage the College’s existing programs in art, architecture and design, in addition to supporting the important role design plays in South Florida,” said MOA+D Executive Director and Chief Curator Jeremy Mikolajczak. “The College and Museum could not ask for better partners in establishing a design collection and exhibitions program than David and Marianne Russell,” who are former foundation board members and franchise owners  now serving as leaders of the foundation.
