The National YoungArts Foundation – and its corporate partner Brickell Flatiron – recently held a panel that discussed the importance and influence of art across various industries. Featured panelists included luxury Developer Ugo Colombo, Philanthropist Sarah Arison, Managing Director with Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, Oti Roberts, and Senior FIU Fellow Cathy Leff. The discussion was moderated by art aficionado Kathryn Mikesell.
The National YoungArts Foundation identifies and supports the next generation of artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts; assists them at critical junctures in their educational and professional development; and raises appreciation for the arts in American society.
Ugo Colombo’s CMC Real Estate is developing Brickell Flatiron, at 1001 South Miami Avenue. Ugo Colombo filed a declaration of condominium for the project in November and CMC bought the property in October 2013. Brickell Flatiron will have 552 units and the building will include 40,000-sq ft of retail space, featuring restaurants, shopping, and a modern lobby, all designed by renowned artist, Julian Schnabel.
