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)...so 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 friends...so 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.
