Miami Circle Ensemble

As you know my day job is that of VP of Education and Visitor Services at HistoryMiami (formerly the Historical Museum of Southern Florida). Today was a big day at work, after 12 years of working on this project and about 1.5 years of construction---The Miami Circle (managed by HistoryMiami) opened to the public today.

I knew there'd be plenty of press (I did end up on the news on a few channels) I wanted to raise the bar 500% from yesterday's ensemble...(what do you think?) All in black and decked out in Kristin Pearce jewels, I think my mission was accomplished. Plus there were a good number of dignitaries and museum several reasons to look cute.

Above is a picture of me with my dear friend from work, la Doctora...and below pictures of the circle and the phase 1 masterplan drawing.

The Miami Circle is an ancient Tequesta Indian site and today it is part of a passive park on the mouth of the Miami River and is now officially open to the public to enjoy.


  1. This is awesome! Congratulations :)

  2. So excited about the Miami Circle news, esp. after my research last year. I have to visit. What are the black rock/slate pieces about in the circle?

  3. Thank you ladies!

    @Marie- the slate pieces denote where the holes are in the circle.
