ArtCenter ‘shero’

I was thrilled to see all the talented and dedicated women honored in the Sept. 21 article Women rule the South Florida arts world. However, there was a glaring omission: Maria Del Valle, executive director of ArtCenter South Florida, which provided the impetus for the huge success of Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.

More than 40 artists in every medium work and show their art to the public at 800, 810 and 924 Lincoln Road. In addition, there is a print shop, various educational programs and much more. Give Del Valle the credit she truly deserves.

Merle Weiss, board secretary, ArtCenter South Florida, Miami Beach
