Martin Margulies has been a successful builder who developed Grove Isle among other unique projects. He followed his passion for Modern Art and started the extraordinary Margulies Collection Museum located in Miami. (We will see a series of images from his collection.) His concern for the quality of life in Miami developed into several substantial philanthropic gifts to the residents. He has also become an outspoken advocate against the public funding for museums in Bicentennial Park as well as the Marlins stadium. Margulies is now supporting the Mayor Alvarez recall and efforts to stop state funding for the Dolphins (Sunlife) Stadium. He will be questioned by UEL Vice President and UM Professor Gregory Bush about how his life in development, art, and civic activism relate to each other.
