March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, and the Coral Gables Museum will celebrate it with the exhibition I heART Miami that gathers the work of artists with developmental disabilities. This is an art collaboration project between Adult Day Training Centers in our community and has been coordinated by The WOW Center.
*The name Caribbee Club derives from Coral Gables’ founder, George Merrick’s fishing resort called the Caribbee Colony, in Matecumbe Key – the business venture he launched after he was forced out of his beloved city in the late 1920s. This project aims at supporting the artistic vision of our local creatives who keep alive important cultural elements of the city and its surroundings; one of the Museum’s main priorities. Local artists working with local themes are usually on display at the Frank Lynn Gallery for two months. Original works and prints by participating artists are often available for purchase in the Gift Shop.
