This week, Knight Foundation awarded $3.8 million to the newest winners of the Knight Arts Challenge Miami – and the ceremony at the Knight Concert Hall was imbued with art.

Singers from the Florida Grand Opera, dressed as regular attendees, surprised the audience with a performance Toreador Aria, from Bizet’s Carmen – a nod to Knight’s Random Acts of Culture™ series.

Poet Scott Cunningham, founder of the O, Miami poetry festival, read an original work about seeing a photograph of a painter for the first time.

The audience saw a sneak peak of a video about how challenge winners are transforming the South Florida arts.

And one challenge winner, Lucas Leyva of the Borscht Film Festival, sported a “KF” for Knight Foundation shaved into his head.

Take a look at more photos from the evening’s ceremony – and check out this year’s Knight Arts Challenge winners at KnightArts.org.
