On Monday, April 20, Chairman of the Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs Council, Adolfo Henriques, delivered the much anticipated State of the Arts in Miami-Dade County Address. In a time when the economic climate throughout all industries and the nation has been no more than bleak and concerning, Henriques’ overall message carried an optimistic yet realistic analysis into how the arts and culture realms are fairing and commended the Adrienne Arsht Center for its valiant efforts.
The chairman made an acknowledgement to the many strategies implemented that have softened the daily stresses and financial struggles taking place in all aspects of the Miami-Dade cultural community including the successful act of the Adrienne Arsht Center adopting the remaining series of shows that were to be presented by Concert Association of Florida after its doors closed. Henriques stated, “I want to commend the boards of the Concert Association of Florida and the Adrienne Arsht Center for finding a way to continue to present the great arts companies of the world to Miami-Dade audiences.” He continued, “This is a great example of converting crisis into opportunity, and a real win for our community…you only had to attend an Alvin Ailey Performance this past weekend to be convinced.”
Although this was one highlight into preserving the arts in our community, there are still many other concerns that continue to be addressed within Miami-Dade arts and culture. It’s the hard work, dedication and passion for the arts that will keep it afloat throughout the hard years ahead.
