The BAZAAR BAR brings together a community of artists and makers working in diverse media, such as product design, printmaking, jewelry, pottery, and more. An initiative of MOA+D’s Pop Up Shop!, the event presents a curated platform of innovative local makers with the opportunity to sell their works, engage with the community and expose their creative genius while reflecting the spirit of Miami.
Participating makers include Hustle Sauce, LMNOQ, PoshLife Miami, Grizzly Print Parlour, Bell Design Factory, Moonlighter, Gerbi Tsesarskaia, Regina Jestrow, and O, Miami/Jai-Alai Books, among others.
In addition, the museum’s Pop Up Shop! will unveil its new curated series of artists as makers and designers. The first featured artist is Brooklyn-based CHIAOZZA, a small design studio making playful objects for everyday life. The collaborative studio was founded in 2012 by architect Terri Chiao and fine artist, Adam Frezza. CHIAOZZA is a common ground for design experimentation bridging the two disciplines of fine art and architecture. Upcoming featured designers will include Miami-based LMNOQ by designer Laz Ojalde; Hustle Sauce, a local graphic T-Shirt company; New Mexico-based ceramicist Rachel Donner; and North Carolina-based ceramicist Heather Mae Erickson.
A percentage of proceeds from the BAZAAR BAR and Pop Up Shop! will benefit the MOA+D’s Museum Education department. The Pop Up Shop! is open to the public during museum hours. This event is presented in support of MDC MOA+D’s new “Third Saturday” campaign – the museum will stay open until 8 p.m. every third Saturday of the month.
