Freedom Tower-Museum of Art + Design Kicks Off Inaugural Paper Hearts Fundraiser

Paper Hearts, on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, at MDC’s historic landmark and signature venue for visual arts, the Freedom Tower attended by 500 people. Click here to see the event photos.

Paper Hearts is MOAD’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 Miami’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 “buy it now” price will be available, where patrons can bypass the silent auction.

General admission is $75.00 per guest and includes unlimited hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. VIP admission is $200.00 per guest and includes access to VIP lounge, special hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, a VIP gift bag, and silent auction preview.

All proceeds will benefit the MDC Museum of Art + Design Exhibition and Program Fund. Donations are processed through The Miami Dade College Foundation and are tax deductible to extent confirmed and allowable by law.
