CultureViewMIA is a place to discover the artists, events, news and trends that make Miami’s cultural scene unlike any where else in the world. My name is Jordan Levin, and I’ve spent over 25 years writing about culture here, 18 of them as a leading arts writer at the Miami Herald, which has given me a sense of history, broad perspective, deep roots, and familiarity with every facet of artistic life in Miami. I’ve covered everything from Latin pop to contemporary dance, from Cuban cultural exchange to Broadway shows, from Art Week glitz to underground scenes. I’ll bring all that to bear on writing about whatever seems compelling, worthwhile or newsworthy here.
