To end its fifth-year season, ARTtuesdays/Miami will talk all about Opa-Locka. That is the city in Miami-Dade with maybe the most eccentric architecture in Florida, and that’s saying something.

The main show at MOCA is the huge solo exhibit from Wangechi Mutu, and more on that amazing survey of works in a separate review.
