ArtSchools.com, a directory of best art schools in America, discusses how Jorge Pérez plans on bringing art to the forefront of Miami.
According to a February 8th article posted on CNN titled, “Meet the Billionaire Behind Miami's Artistic Rebirth,” Jorge Perez, a billionaire that loves art, is planning to bring art back to Miami. So far, the article says Perez has founded other community projects in several cities that have proven to be huge successes, and he is looking to do it again in Miami.
The article discusses how Miami is a popular location for tourists, retirees, and Cuban-Americans. However, it is not well known for its art. Real estate developer Jorge Perez would like to change that. The article says he plans to do it by donating $40 million to the Pérez Art Museum of Miami, one of the only art museums in Americas with a Hispanic name.
The article claims that Miami is in the midst of change—a change involving the arts. In the article, Perez says, “Cultural institutions have played a critical role in the growth of Miami, with this museum as a leading example.” The contributions by Perez could prove to be a big help in making Miami a center of arts for not only the United States, but for the world.
Andrew Girard, a representative for ArtSchools.com, a directory of best art schools, says that Perez’s museum plan could prove to be revolutionary. “The arts are important for the development of culture. By funding and supporting the arts of Miami, Perez could make the city a major focal point for art enthusiasts,” Girard says. “If Miami continues to grow as an art haven, I expect it to help increase tourism and real estate opportunities. Cities that have a focus on art tend to flourish in many other areas as well. It’s important that major cities embrace their art culture. Art is representative of our history and every major city should take that into account.”
