Front Cover
Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU, 2021 - 124 pages
For decades, Coconut Grove has attracted artists, writers, and musicians. The Frost has chosen to tell a story of a moment in the Grove's rich history through a select group of visual artists. The creative life of the Grove sprang from the vibrant people who chose to create in this Miami neighborhood. It is not a single artist or group of artists but the spirit of a community that has contributed to the Grove's reputation as a wellspring of creativity.In Miami, neighborhoods change rapidly, and populations shift and swell like the rising sea level. Place and Purpose: Art Transformation in Coconut Grove celebrates the role of a community as a creative space as well as a key driver behind a young city's evolution. Coconut Grove established itself in the 1960's as the local haven for a diverse group of artists, writers, musicians, and art galleries.
