The James Royal Palm and the most prestigious museum in South Florida, Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) joined forces for a unique, permanent piece installation by local artist, Jorge Pantoja. His piece, unveiled in the hotel’s West Tower Lobby in October 2012, was inspired by the hotel’s permanent art collection and curator’s statement, “An Ocean Apart.” This collaboration will offer guests and locals exclusive access to special events hosted by The Leadership Circle at MOCA, a dynamic group of young patrons who develop relationships with collectors, philanthropists and art enthusiasts from around the world to advocate on behalf of supporting the arts and culture in South Florida.
