You don't often think of lawyers in our town as driving the burgeoning non-profit arts scene, yet look at this Miami Herald article, which quotes Mike Eidson, chair of the Arsht Center Board of Directors; Dennis Scholl, of the Knight Foundation, and active patron Ali Mora -- all lawyers.
Mike even says going to the arts is good for the soul -- and he's right:
“Going to attend cultural events at places like the Arsht Center is a good thing for making people feel like they’re part of a viable community, part of an exciting community,” he said. “They don’t want to just sit at home. They’re not just going to bars.’’Especially strip bars, according to recent headlines.
