Wynwood Walls

In 2009, The Cinemart (thecinemart.com) traveled to Wynwood, Miami with the late Urban Visionary Tony Goldman to document his efforts to re-invent the Neighborhood with Street Art and Entrepreneurial Innovation. The result was Here Comes the Neighborhood.

After the Series premiered in 2011, the team continued to work with the Goldman Family and Artists from around the World to document this remarkable transformation: from a dormant industrial quarter into the global Mecca of Street Art and one of the fastest neighborhood revitalizations in American history. Over six years in the making, "Walls of Change" taps into a deep film and photo archive, featuring over 25 of the World's biggest names in Street Art and Graffiti and exclusive photographs from legendary documentarian Martha Cooper.

The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU (JMOF-FIU) established in 1995, is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of more than 250 years of Florida Jewish history, arts, and culture, with a growing collection of more than 100,000 items. The Museum is housed in two restored historic buildings that were once synagogues for Miami Beach's first Jewish congregation.

Virtual tour of the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach

When it was completed in 1902, the New York Herald proclaimed that Whitehall, Henry Flagler's Gilded Age estate in Palm Beach, was "more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world." Today, Whitehall is a National Historic Landmark and is open to the public as the Flagler Museum, offering self-guided tours, changing exhibitions, and special programs. You can explore some of the Flagler Museum's rooms on the first and second floors, and the Pavillion, by taking a Virtual Tour.
