A South Florida landmark with a long and rich history as a cultural hub, The Koubek Center is dedicated to building community through the arts. For decades, Koubek has served as a catalyst of artistic creation and multidisciplinary education. It is a place for artists and local arts organizations to explore and experiment, engage in collaborations and share their work with the community. The Koubek Center includes a 195-seat theater, an expansive garden, classrooms, and rehearsal and multi-use spaces. Built in 1929 by Austrian trader John J. Koubek as a gift to his wife, it was later donated to the University of Miami and acquired by Miami Dade College in 2011.
