Posted on: August 25, 2020

“When the going gets rough, really rough, the Miami arts scene comes together,” writes Erika Corsano in Monday’s (8/24) Miami Herald (FL). “Launched by Miami newcomer Kathleen Drohan, Vice President of Public Relations at New World Symphony—along with her many colleagues at various Miami-Dade arts and culture organizations—Miami Art Strong (MAS) is an initiative meant to strengthen and support the arts in Miami. The program recently kicked off with the launch of an interactive digital marketing campaign that invites Miamians to share their favorite, inspiring, local art experiences using the hashtag #MiamiArtStrong…. COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for Miami (and the world’s) arts community, both financially and in the ability to connect with one another…. The MAS campaign aims to create connections digitally and also connect leaders from cultural institutions to share resources, information, and strategies to support each other through an unprecedented time…. Participating institutions include: Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; The Bakehouse Art Complex; Fountainhead Residency and Studios; Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, FIU; The Jewish Museum of Florida – FIU; Miami Children’s Museum; Miami City Ballet; Miami New Drama; Museum of Graffiti; and many others.”
