The Spain-Florida Foundation 500 Years has created a partnership with two different institutions to promote the grandiose Hispanic legacy of our state.
At the private reception held at the Coral Gables Museum, on behalf of the Hispanic community in Miami, the Spain-Florida Foundation and the Board of Directors presented a token of appreciation to Mrs. Arva Moore Parks, the Acting Director and Chief Curator of the Coral Gables Museum. In recognition of her outstanding and endless efforts to preserve and promote our history and particularly her commitment towards the Hispanic legacy, that has shaped this city since its very beginning.
Today, the local community benefits with her passion for history and the Coral Gables Museum has already become a place where everybody can learn about the Hispanic Heritage that is imprinted not only in Coral Gables, but in the state of Florida.
At the same reception, the Spain-Florida Foundation and the Board of Directors also presented an award to Mrs. Janine Farver, the Executive Director of the Florida Humanities Council in recognition to her endless efforts and unconditional commitment toward the promotion of the Hispanic Legacy.
For more than 40 years, the Florida Humanities Council (FHC) has been providing opportunities to disciplines of the humanities that explore history, literary and artistic traditions, cultural values, and ethics.
The Spain-Florida Foundation 500 Years along with the Florida Humanities Council are working together to organize a traveling history seminar in various cities of the state. The first stop will be the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, and it will continue onward to Flagger College, in St. Augustine.
