Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Looks like we're not the only art fans handing out money. The Knight Foundation, that benevolent overlord who makes most great art  happen in Miami, announced the 27 winners of the 2010 Knights Art Challenge. Among the honorees are New Times favorites Borscht Film Festival and free Florida Grand Opera programs. Other funds will benefit a monthly concert series in Little Haiti, vinyl record swaps at Miami Art Museum, and a 24-channel sound installation outside the ArtCenter on Lincoln Road. For a full list of all the winners, continue after the jump. Congrats all!

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
