THE MARIAH BROWN HOUSE MUSEUM
During the 5th annual GIVE MIAMI DAY
on Thursday, November 17th 2016,
Crystal Parrot received $3,225.
These donations were added to those we have held in trust
for the restoration of the Mariah Brown House.
We are proud to have raised over $10,400
to take what Mariah Brown had built more than 100 years ago
and turn it into a community-curated interactive museum
in the heart of Coconut Grove.
Please watch -- and share -- the video
released in early November about our
Mariah Brown House Museum Project.
A MONUMENT by JAMES MASTIN
Sandra Riley has donated the entire edition of her latest book
"The Lucayan Taino" to Crystal Parrot so that 100% of the proceeds
can go toward the making of a monument in Miami
to honor indigenous peoples.
This bronze sculpture by artist James Mastin is the model for a
life-size public installation. It depicts a family
dancing in the water with dolphins, celebrating life;
there is a space for us to take hands with them.
THE MIAMI CIRCLE
In a small effort to take care of our Miami Circle,
Crystal Parrot has started a monthly clean-up of the sacred site
and posted small signs asking visitors to curb their pets.
In 2009, Travis Neff produced
"Connections UnEarthed: The Miami Circle Story,"
the docu-short that commemorates the discovery
of the archaeological site in the heart of downtown.
It premiered at Miami's historic Gusman Center for the Performing Arts
as part of the Miami Borscht Film Festival.
