A Jewel of a Miami Experience

la merced chapel, miamicurated

 

 

Thanks to a good friend and the Funding Arts Network (FAN), I made a jewel of a discovery that I’d never imagine existed. It’s the Chapel of Our Lady of La Merced and the exceptional Martha/Mary Yamaha concert series that it hosts.  No ordinary venue this, it’s part of the Colonial Florida Cultural Heritage Center LLC in Allapattah that operates La Merced Chapel Miami and La Casa. The latter includes an exhibition space and art restoration and preservation studio. The Center focuses on times from the earliest Spanish Colonial influences throughout South, Central and North America and the Caribbean, with a special focus on Colonial Florida, through the 19th century and in some cases the early 20th.

And better yet, the theme — Kings and Queens of the Jungle — was sure to make a creative bunch even more creative.  Created and designed by millennials, it wasn’t your usual gala. Check out the fashion spotting at this photo gallery.
