Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know about the banana-and-duct-tape situation at Art Basel Miami Beach. To celebrate this momentous time in the canon of art history, the Morean is hosting a banana-themed art exhibition. Any visual art medium will be accepted, but the work must in some way pay homage to the now-famous Maurizio Cattelan’s “The Comedian.”

Exhibitions at Hermitage Apartment Homes
The Morean and Hermitage Apartment Homes are partnering to bring recognition to our local artists. The first-floor lobby of the Hermitage, located two blocks from the Morean, is a beautiful, airy and contemporary space—perfect for showcasing artwork. If your work is large, and you are interested in a one or two-person show in this space, please complete the General Exhibitions form below and select the Hermitage Gallery for consideration.
Exhibitions at the Morean Arts Center
Our department arranges exhibitions of work in all media by a broad spectrum of artists, including those who are emerging, mid-career, and established, as well as work by children.
We put on over 30 exhibitions each year, with each exhibition running from 4 to 7 weeks.
The Morean Arts Center is not only interested in the meaning of contemporary art, but also in educating our visitors on how art is made.
Often our exhibitions will feature process areas where an artist reveals his or her working philosophy, even showing step-by-step progressions of artwork at times.
We seek to connect people with our exhibiting artists so that our community feels an affinity with the artists whose work is on display and a personal connection with the artwork itself.
We also work with the Morean’s education department to offer additional programming that enriches the viewer’s experience with our exhibitions. These may include gallery talks, panel discussions, special tours, master artist workshops, and hands-on activities for children. We welcome artists’ programming ideas, as well.
Most of the works in our exhibitions are for sale, with proceeds going to the exhibiting artists and to the programs at the Morean Arts Center.
