Sherryl Muriente oversees the programming of public spaces to further enhance the quality of life for Downtown residents and visitors.
Before joining the DDA team she worked with Street Plans, the internationally known stewards of Tactical Urbanism, for which she managed large-scale temporary projects such as Biscayne Green in downtown Miami. Muriente also served as the Creative Director of LeJobart, artist duet, in which she curated and managed large-scale public art projects.
