FIU Celebrates City of Miami Beach’s 100th Anniversary

MBUSAs part of an expansive partnership with the city that began last year, FIU is hosting numerous events in conjunction with the 100th Anniversary of Miami Beach.

Though the celebration runs all year, the major centennial events will be held March 22-26, including a performance by the FIU Symphony and Concert Choir at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on March 25.

According to John Stuart, associate dean of cultural and community engagement in the College of Architecture + the Arts (CARTA) and executive director of the Miami Beach Urban Studios (MBUS), FIU has had a significant presence on Miami Beach for years ­­­­­– so partnering with the city was a natural fit.

Beyond the centennial events, projects included in FIU’s partnership with the city range from sea level rise and transportation to dual enrollment and new courses at MBUS.

Located in the iconic 420 Lincoln Road building, FIU’s MBUS has worked with city leaders for months to help plan FIU’s collaboration with the centennial. In addition to MBUS, the Wolfsonian-FIU and the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU will play a part in the festivities.

Oberhausen Marketing & PR (OBR) is not only a business of Miami Beach, but is also a vested party in the future of the community. South Beach local Josh Oberhausen, President of OBR and member of the Board of CARTA, is passionate about seeing these projects through to fruition.
