MOCA has been most generous in offering us the opportunity to meet in the Pavilion Gallery in support of their MOCA Teen programming.

This month, Fantastic Fibers Miami is all about the Yarn Bomb at MOCA and the Fresh Threads exhibition in the Pavilion Gallery. This show is because of the MOCA Teen art program and their work, as inspired by Fantastic Fibers Miami members, Morgan Lorenzo who organized all of it; Dana Yancoskie who contributed hours and hours, miles of crochet, and invaluabe pillar calculations and installation advice; and me with my knitted yarn bomb strips to which I added more, plus hours and hours of time teaching the kids to knit. They were great.
Our Artist Books from the 2017 Round Robin Project are also on view in the gallery. They are very cool.
