Tickets to Mystery Dates are $200 for non-members and $175 for members and proceeds benefit MOCA’s exhibitions by emerging artists. Mystery Dates is a series of glamorous dinner parties held concurrently at the homes of private art collectors and designers around Miami. The mystery is that guests learn only that evening, which dinner they will attend. After an amazing meal and tours of private collections, guests will meet at The Shore Club for dessert and dancing. This year Mystery Dates dinners will be hosted by Joe Berg, Robert Blumenthal, Sam Burstyn and daughter Alana Burstyn, Lizzie Dascal, Barbara Herzberg, Nina Johnson, Kathryn and Dan Mikesell, Dale and Richard Newberg and Billy Weisman among others.
