In certain intellectual and artistic circles, it’s almost a sport to complain about how Miami gets every bit of culture last among the country’s larger cities. And yet, every day a little piece of evidence appears, shining like a beacon of hope in a sun-bleached mental vacuum.
Indie film buffs, take particular note of the latest development to benefit you: GATHR, a nationwide sort of film-previewing club that’s now offered in Miami at O Cinema’s Wynwood location.
Knight Foundation and its Knight Arts Challenge grants have lubricated the city's arts community for the past five years, funding projects great and small that benefit the greater cultural good.
Those free projections on the side of the New World Symphony building and events in the Soundscape park? Knight money. The sculpture garden at the Bass Museum? Knight money. Those off-beat Weird Miami bus tours? Yep, also Knight money.
