The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) has announced the artists selected for this season’s “Art on the Plaza” series: Edison Peñafiel, LIZN’BOW (Liz Ferrer and Bow Ty), Sterling Rook, and Chris Friday. Beginning in March 2023, site-specific works from different artists will be highlighted for three months at a time, engaging and connecting the community with their unique and inspiring works of art.
The season will kick off in mid-March with Edison Peñafiel’s installation, “Run, Run, Run like the Wind.” This colorful display of nine banners will hang from the highest point of the palm trees throughout MOCA’s Plaza, showcasing characters on the run and accompanied by text taken from Latin American protest songs. Peñafiel’s work will highlight the act of escape during political turmoil, speaking to themes of human migration, displacement, and social justice.
