Did you know that May 1st is the beginning of Miami Museum Month? Miami Museum Month is a great opportunity to go museum hopping in Miami, and to take advantage of the city’s unique cultural scene. This week, I have an event recommendation from the The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in North Miami.
In honor of this Russian exhibition, MOCA invites guests to VECHERINKA, an exciting evening mixer featuring Russian delicacies, a vodka tasting and music. Guests can enjoy a conversational VIP tour with exhibition artist Ekaterina Khromin.
Thursday, May 4 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Admission is $10 per person; $5 for MOCA members and North Miami residents.
Free for MOCA Shakers.
