Thiele proposes a project as a spin-off from the Ring of Honor at Dolphin’s Stadium, in order to honor eight women who have contributed significantly to the Miami art world with street signs in their honor. Starting with the existent Lou Anne Lane, he believes he could locate seven other signs in a circular configuration throughout Miami virtually––Margarita Mile, Dahlia Drive, Ellie Avenue, Dorothy (Blau) Terrace, Helen Circle and Barbara’s Blvd (Young and Gillman).
