A Conversation with Lin Arison

Part Two of Five

In Part Two of our conversation with Lin Arison, we learn about the beginnings of Carnival Cruise Lines and how it went from being upsidedown financially to becoming successful and how that success spawned the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (NFAA), now known as YoungArts. Lin shares the story of how she and her late husband Ted brought NFAA to Dr. Eduardo Padron of Miami-Dade College, as mandated by former president Jimmy Carter, as a means for evaluating arts students and how that seed flowered into other arts institutions that would eventually blossom throughout Miami.
