Knight Foundation renews community through arts

Seeking projects that benefit South Florida

According to Tatiana Hernandez, South Florida is experiencing an arts revival. “Right now, South Florida is undergoing a creative renaissance,” said Hernandez, arts program officer of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. “Culturally, Miami is very young. [Prior to current funding] museums and other art institutions were last funded in the late 1980s based on the small size of those communities. Now, those same communities have expanded tremendously, and they’re receiving funding that’s reflective of it.”
