Nina Johnson-Milewski is known locally as one of Miami's most active creatives. She's the owner of Wynwood's Gallery Diet, New Times' pick for Best Art Gallery in 2009. She's one of the founders of the Miami Rail, a sister publication to New York City's Brooklyn Rail. And as one of the founders of Women of Wynwood, she's a strong supporter of her community.
This weekend, Johnson-Milewski's artsy side is getting a little national exposure, when Discovery en Español premieres Gen H, a docu-reality production following three young Hispanic professionals in Miami.
Johnson-Milewski joins Puerto Rican chef and entrepreneur José Mendin and composer Juan Felipe Valencia on the program, which celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month by "[focusing] on a new generation of Hispanics that clearly influence our nation and are a source of inspiration," said Eileen Piñeiro, Director of Content for Discovery en Español. "We want to expose the positive force and drive of this young group that follow their own rules and that, with their hard work and vision, have the power to choose their destiny."
