The Martin County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved a legal settlement with the owners of Lake Point Monday, officials said.
A nearly five-year legal battle has been settled as Martin County Commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to pay a $12 million settlement to Lake Point Restoration.
It is the county’s second payout to the Lake Point rock quarry, which in 2013 accused the county of contract and public-records violations. The combined settlements and budgeted legal fees could push total cost of the Lake Point lawsuit as high as $20 million, according to County Commissioner Ed Ciampi.
It feels like every museum is getting younger these days, with a facelift to match. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York now has a dedicated home for modern and contemporary art with the Met Breuer. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is undergoing a massive Frank Gehry-designed overhaul that will create new galleries to house its contemporary collection.
There is indeed a big Botticelli at The Bass, Miami Beach’s mighty little art museum. Starting Sunday, visitors can see it once more, after an absence of more than two years, in a freshened-up setting that signals a bold new start for the 53-year-old institution.
