RETURNING IN 2015
By now, you've come to expect feats of strange wonder from MONA First Lady Kirsha Kaechele and her team of talented misfits. This year's MoMa is no different; but she's expanded her horizons to take in our beloved - but grubby - River Derwent. The result? The River Derwent Heavy Metals Project, which we're kicking off at our first market for the year.
