Museum of Art + Design
What do you give that special someone who has everything? How about an evening filled with music, art and sumptuous hors dâ€™oeuvres and cocktails. Just in time for Valentineâ€™s Day, Miami Dade Collegeâ€™s Museum of Art + Design will present the first installment of its annual fundraiser, Paper Hearts, from 8 â€“ 11 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, at MDCâ€™s historic landmark and signature venue for visual arts, the Freedom Tower.
Paper Hearts is MOADâ€™s single largest fundraiser to fuel exhibition and education programs, in addition to the continued stewardship of its historic home. Guests are invited to mingle among artists, enjoy various performances, and savor bites and cocktails from local restaurants and bars, all while moving to the beats of DJ Hottpants and a headlining live performance by Miamiâ€™s own Afrobeta.
Guests will also have the opportunity to build their arts collections by bidding on works of art curated by famed Miami Gallerist Bernice Steinbaum. More than 50 pieces by a roster of local, national and internationally-acclaimed artists will be up for auction, including works by Lynne Golob Gelfman, Enrique Gomez de Molina, Jaimie Warren, Carol Brown, and late famed Cuban artist, Manuel Carbonell. A special â€œbuy it nowâ€ price will be available, where patrons can bypass the silent auction.
General admission is $75.00 per guest and includes unlimited hors dâ€™oeuvres and cocktails. VIP admission is $200.00 per guest and includes access to VIP lounge, special hors dâ€™oeuvres and cocktails, a VIP gift bag, and silent auction preview.
