Joel Hoffman | Executive Director and CEO of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Throughout his museum career, Joel Hoffman has focused on making visual arts and history engaging to diverse public audiences. In the past decade, Vizcaya’s visitation has more than doubled, in large part due to the introduction of new programs. Following voter approval of a bond, through which $50 million was allocated to Vizcaya, Hoffman and his team have been working to advance the physical rehabilitation of the estate.
