Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library is pleased to announce its first annual Miami Moments, an evening celebrating extraordinary people in our cultural community. The 2012 event honors three women inextricably tied to the history of the Main Library and its ongoing support of the visual arts –The Library’s Three Graces in the Arts: Margarita Cano, Helen Kohen and Barbara Young.

During the last three decades before retiring, these dedicated, amazing professionals contributed in many ways to the founding of the Library’s renowned art collection, to its broad-reaching educational and cultural programs and to the establishment of a unique archive of the history of the visual arts in Miami, The Vasari Project.

The Honorary Co-Chairs are Maurice Ferre, William T. Muir and H.T. Smith. Guests are encouraged to wear Festive Attire and Fanciful Hats to signal their creative urges. The Silent Art Auction and Contemporary Vasari Raffle include works by Ed Ruscha, Christo and Emilio Sanchez, along with selected Miami-based artists such as Carlos Alfonzo, Fernando Garcia and Purvis Young.

The evening’s program includes a self-guided tour of selections from the library’s art collection as well as Ed Ruscha’s renowned public art installation throughout the building’s interior spaces.
