The MDC Galleries of Art + Design is a network of venues and initiatives at the College's North, Kendall, Wolfson, InterAmerican, Homestead, Hialeah, and West campuses located throughout South Florida, including the expansive Miami International Sculpture Park situated at the North Campus. Miami Dade College utilizes its gallery spaces, its art in public spaces, its staff and visual resources, as well as the expertise and artistic talents of faculty and students at MDC, to provide yearlong programming of activities that offer a unique learning experience through direct contact with works of art, artists, designers, and creative professionals. Exhibitions, concerts, lectures, films, symposiums and much more are part of its diverse presentation of cultural programs, with events that are free and open to the public.

Mission

Miami Dade College Galleries of Art + Design organize exhibitions and educational programs in collaboration with the students, faculty and local community, while providing a platform for public engagement and curricular development.
