Rosa de la Cruz Bashes MOCA, Bass and PAMM: "Why Is It That Miami Museums Are Becoming Places Just For Parties?"

Rosa de la Cruz has been on a bit of a tear lately. On Thursday, she sent the Miami art world into a mid Basel tizzy with an interview claiming that the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) was moving.

Now she's not only doubling down on her remarks but also sounding off on the city's other art museums, including the just opened Perez Art Museum Miami and the Bass Museum in Miami Beach.

"Why is it that Miami museums are becoming places just for parties?" she told New Times. "It's embarrassing that in our city these things are happening."
