Alumni Spotlight: Mikhaile Solomon, Architecture ’11

Mikhaile Solomon graduated from FIU in 2011 with a Master’s in Architecture, after completing an undergraduate degree in Theatre Arts at the University of South Florida. She has years of professional experience in design, education, arts advocacy, and community development.

Solomon has worked with several architecture firms in South Florida, including Arquitectonica, ESA, the Hall Group, and Design2Form, on projects that range from small scale historical preservation to large urban master plans. Solomon has worked with a number of educational initiatives such as FIU’s Upward Bound and Kapow.

In 2013, Solomon founded and currently serves as Director of Prizm Art Fair, a cutting-edge art fair that expands the spectrum of international artists from the global African Diaspora and emerging Markets during Art Basel Miami Beach. Prizm’s mission is to exhibit a diverse roster of artists whose works reflect global trends in contemporary art though a series of cultural events, culminating in an annual curated fair.

Solomon is also the Director of Public Art for the Opa-locka Community Development Corporation, where she fosters development of programming and facilitates the implementation of arts projects in Opa-locka and the South Florida region. These artistic encounters advance and strengthen the culture that characterizes the uniqueness of the Opa-locka community.
