To celebrate and spotlight Miami artists who create and bring those theatrical stories to life, The Knight Foundation, which has invested $165 million into the arts and culture of Miami since 2005, launched Knight New Work Miami late last year. With a $500,000 commitment, the foundation has funded five original works of performance art that capture the city’s culture, exuberance and originality. The five artists will tell their own whimsical stories of Miami. As the audience, we will have the opportunity to see this magical city from their point of view when the performances debut during the 2020-2021 Knight Foundation season of the arts.
“Capitalization supports artistic freedom,” Thomas says. “If there’s enough capital in an organization, it can take risks with artistic products, and it can innovate from a position of strength. There’s a deep connection between finances and the arts that cannot be undermined.”
