AFRICOBRA: Messages to the People
MOCA Celebrates the exhibition opening during Miami Art Week
The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) was packed with supporters and art aficionados for the opening of “AFRICOBRA: Messages to the People.” Guests enjoyed cocktails and canapés and danced under the stars to the sounds of Wendy Pederson and Jim Gasior from New World School of the Arts and a New World School of the Arts Jazz Ensemble followed by DJ Epps. Curator Jeffreen M. Hayes and founding and early members of AFRICOBRA, Sherman Beck, Napoleon Jones-Henderson, Jae Jarrell, Wadsworth Jarrell, Carolyn Mims Lawrence, Nelson Stevens and Gerald Williams, were on hand for the celebration, along with MOCA’s new director Chana Budgazad Sheldon. The groundbreaking exhibition commemorates the Chicago-based AFRICOBRA Collective’s 50th anniversary. It will be on view through April 17.
