Wine by Design 2014: A Hot Night in Rio!


February 28, 2014 7-10pm

Join us on February 28, from 7-10 p.m. for the 23rd annual Wine by Design, a major fundraising event that supports MOCA’s numerous art education programs. Wine by Design 2014: A Hot Night in Rio, presented by Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust will be all about Latin flare! Celebrating MOCA's exhibition Vik Muniz: Poetics of Perception, the event will feature a diverse array of wines from South America and a tempting line up of cuisine from some of your favorite local dining establishments. Enjoy browsing (and buying!) at our silent auction, and move to the music of our entertainers.

Monies generated from ticket sales help MOCA offer its Student Art Start program at greatly reduced costs to visiting classrooms and other school groups and allows us to provide free programs to a certain number of underserved youth.  During the 2012-2013 school year, MOCA provided critical art education through its various educational programs to nearly 25,000 students. Your support of Wine by Design helps the museum fill an ever-increasing gap created by public school funding cuts; your support also is an investment in innovative, creative thinking young people!
