Thought-Provokers: Coral Gables

Miami has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Coral Gables that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Today, I paint with words and write with images. My husband, my mentor, guides me when I ask for help or need a push to jump to another level; otherwise, letting my muse and I run free to express ourselves without restraint. Read more>>
