Great ideas flooded from all over Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in March 2010 into the Knight Foundation to receive funding as part of the $40 million Knight Arts Challenge.
Iin just three years, the Knight Foundation has invested $16 mil. in arts challenge projects- an amount that local arts supporters will double with matching funds.
The rules were simple: Bring the community together through the arts.
Miami is transforming, as we speak. The winners of the 3rd round of funding will be announced on Monday, Nov. 29.
This will mark the third year of Knight Foundation’s five-year, $40 million investment help make art anywhere in South Florida. The KF believes in Miami as a cultural destination and in art as a way to bind the community. Just like the past 2 years, the KF asked the community to submit their best ideas for the arts in South Florida. At deadline, they received 950 applications, certainly, a testament to this community’s creativity.
