Miami 'At The Height Of A Cultural Renaissance,' Ranks High For Philanthropy

Miami ‘At The Height Of A Cultural Renaissance,’ Ranks High For Philanthropy

Miami’s cultural and philanthropic scenes are booming, according to the Observer.

In recent years, philanthropy in the city has seen a notable increase. Miami ranked seventh nationally on Charity Navigator’s 2017 list of the Top 10 Charitable Cities in America.

Among the institutions on the rise thanks to charitable contributions have been the Adrienne Arsht Center, Frost Science Museum, Miami City Ballet, the New World Symphony, and the National YoungArts Foundation.

The Arsht Center itself has welcomed four million guests and generated more than $2 billion in economic impact since opening ten years ago.

Miami is now said to be a “major center of innovation and artistic thought leadership,” in part thanks to the rise of philanthropic activity.

Let them finish Museum Park the way it was designed and presented. We were shown a Tiffany diamond but received a Cracker Jack ring instead. No more empty promises of parks and outdoor spaces until the city/county lives up to what they promise. There are still some sculptures hidden in a warehouse somewhere made by Isamu Noguchi for Bayfront 35 years ago and have never been installed. We are lucky that we got the “Slide Mantra” at all. Look up the plans for the Museum Park and weep. All we got was some grass and a few palm trees. Build the casino instead. I’d rather look at the bay from a nice bar any day…or night.

And finish the Frost Museum of Science landscape.
The Frost Family stop paying the GC the second the Museum got their CO.

The Frosts stepped up with an extra $10 million when the Museum almost ran out of money during construction.

….non-water front casino room in the back. 95% Awesomeness….5% casino room that no one would ever have to see.

As it is, we have some sweet parking lots suitable from eating the face off of your fellow homeless friend.

Thank you useful idiots.

It wasn’t the public that stopped them. RW didn’t make the right payoffs, I mean the right campaign contributions, in Tallahassee.
