|DISCUSS ENGAGING OOLITE ARTS TO PROGRAM THE ROTUNDA AT COLLINS PARK.
|As the City of Miami Beach moves forward with the renovation of The Rotunda located in Collins Park, I ask the Commission to consider engaging Oolite Arts in programming the space. With the recent general obligation bond approved by voters in support of arts and culture, the collaboration between the City and Oolite Arts can bring immense value to our community. Oolite Arts has a rich history of supporting local visual artists, providing free studio space, exhibition opportunities, direct support, and programming to advance their careers. Oolite Arts is an organization deeply rooted in Miami Beach's art ecosystem, established in 1984 as ArtCenter/South Florida. With its new name, Oolite Arts reflects both its roots and mission, symbolizing the bedrock of Miami's visual arts community. By working together, we can further elevate the cultural landscape of Miami Beach.
