Artistic jewel

Re the June 14 article Miami’s YoungArts Foundation launches a visual-arts residency program with Suzanne McClelland: As a salesman of Bacardi rum for more than 25 years, I was invited to visit the building at 2100 Biscayne Blvd. many times. The owners were cordial and generous as they hosted us for meetings and lots of fine food and drink.

Now I see that the iconic buildings are being used for a great purpose, which makes me glad that I was associated with Bacardi for so many years. Thanks for a nice article and photos of the “Jewel Box.” I am sure YoungArts will be successful.
