The business community and art

I was talking about bringing art back to Coconut Grove in a big way a week or so ago.

Shown above is the old Windish-Hunt Gallery, now the soon-to-be-home of Sapient Nitron, the ad agency. It would be so cool if Sapient got involved in the Grove artwise. They were a part of the Bed Race this year, which was great, in fact, they beat the Grove 5-0 and won their category. It would be so great if they could incorporate art some way into the scheme of things. 

This past month they did turn most of the doorways into windows, so there won't be much access into their new headquarters but there could be some way to get involved. Same with Sony, Regus and all these corporations now part of Coconut Grove.

While the Grove is turning corporate, art does not have to disappear. The corporations can easily become Coconut Grove's art patrons.

The BID has come up with the FAM idea, Family, Art and Music. I'll be meeting with them to get the details on how this will work.
