Miami Florida Area Facts
city of North Miami has undergone a major revitalization
in recent years. Downtown North Miami has emerged
as a dynamic cultural and entertainment center, fast
becoming known as the NoMi Arts District.
catalyst for the revitalization was the opening of
the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), a 22,000 square
foot building designed by internationally-renowned
architect Charles Gwathmey which many say "enriches
the dialogue between art and architecture."
Miami is also a major center of education with two
major four-year universities: Florida International
University (FIU) and Johnson & Wales University (JWU).
FIU opened its Biscayne Bay Campus in 1972. Since
then the campus has grown to house many departments,
including the School of Nursing, School of Journalism
and Mass Communication and JWU, an internationally-acclaimed
culinary and food services management school.
