    GOGO MOAD at Wolfson Market & Movie Night: "Unearthly Luminaries"

    MOAD’s free children’s education program on the move, GOGO MOAD pops up at the Market & Movie Night on MDC's Wolfson Campus in Downtown Miami. GOGO MOAD programs feature shared learning experiences of exploring ideas and creating together, and include artist-led hands-on art-making and fun collaborative activities for the whole family.

    From 5:00 to 7:00 PM, teaching artist Lorie Ofir leads participants in a seasonal workshop, "Unearthly Luminaries," to design unique glowing lanterns, just in time for Halloween. At 7:00, sit back for a screening of the beloved classic Beetlejuice. The evening also features a live musical performance by Guitars Over Guns, food trucks, a dog fashion show, and other events.

    GOGO MOAD is open to children ages 5 and up and their families.

    Miami artist Lorie Ofir explores interconnections between human nature and the nature around us through expansive landscape paintings that fuse the elsewhere with an object we experience intimately and daily—our beds. She received her BFA from the University of Florence, has participated in artist residencies in Colorado, New York, and in Miami at the Deering Estate, and has exhibited her work in the U.S. and abroad, including shows at the Jewish Museum of Florida, Harn Museum of Art, Florence University of the Arts, Design Center of the Americas, and galleries in Miami, New York, and Colorado. Ofir is also an Art and Special Needs Instructor with classrooms based on individualized and experiential learning. For the past five years, she was a Teaching Artist at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. With a gallery as a classroom, she enabled youth to have personalized experiences with contemporary art as a catalyst for curiosity, experimentation, and analytical thinking.

    This event is the first in the new GOGO MOAD Membership program. Members receive a screen-printed tote bag that they can personalize at each GOGO MOAD event.

    GOGO MOAD is part of the Museum Without Boundaries initiative.
