Miami, July 14, 2022 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) will present GOGO MOAD, the museum’s popular free children’s education program on the move. This time around, GOGO MOAD will be hosted by hARTvest Project at Pinecrest Gardens on Saturday, August 6. This event is free with pre-registration.
Designed for children ages five and up, GOGO MOAD features hands-on creative and learning experiences led by artists and fun collaborative activities for the entire family. On August 6, artist Asser Saint-Val will show participants how to create sculptures of imaginative creatures in multicolored clay.
Born in Haiti and based in Miami, Saint-Val earned bachelor’s in both painting and graphic design from New World School of the Arts and the University of Florida. His work investigates Neuromelanin as it relates to spirituality and self-consciousness, and he explores these ideas in paintings and multi-sensory interactive art installations. The artist’s works are quasi-figurative and ambiguous and bring together ideas central to modern debates about Neuromelanin. Saint-Val has exhibited at the Museum of Art and Design at MDC (2014); Farside Gallery, Miami (2013); and Miami-Dade County Public Library (2008).
