A terrific event for new and prospective FAN members took place on February 16 at the National YoungArts Foundation Campus on the corner of Biscayne Boulevard and 21st Street—at the nexus of the Wynwood Arts District, Arts & Entertainment District and Edgewater.
FAN President Maureen Gragg, co-hosts and membership co-chairs Alexa Rossy and Renee Lieberman, board members and prospective members and their FAN friends enjoyed a tour of the stunning YoungArts campus.
The YoungArts Campus features iconic and historic buildings and spaces on 3.5 acres. Ted’s at YoungArts, designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry, is one of the most technologically-advanced catering venues in the region, and is located in the Tower building (the former Bacardi building), which features 28,000 vibrant blue-and-white tiles by the Brazilian artist Francisco Brennand.
The Jewel Box at YoungArts was designed by Igancio Carrera-Justiz. It features colorful glass mosaic walls based on designs by German artist Johannes Dietz and inspired by the rum-making process. The Plaza is positioned between two iconic buildings, with wall-cast capabilities.
The Tent can be transformed into what is needed for events, and the two-story Gallery is designed by Frank Gehry, and features year-round exhibitions.
This special FAN event in this beautiful venue was an opportunity for lively conversation, light refreshment, and a chance to learn how FAN membership supports the visual and performance arts in Miami-Dade.
