What started out as a good idea several years ago, a museum dedicated to children’s art is beginning to look like nothing more than a scam on the taxpayers of Broward County.
The Broward Young At Art Museum, YAA, located at 751 SW 121st ave. Davie Florida, has been drawing a lot of online attention the past few days over a couple of very controversial issues.
The first is that it seems that they haven’t been paying their rent to the county for nearly a decade.
We understand that anything involving the arts may need a little help getting started, but a decade? If you go there and look at what is being called art, you’ll see for yourself this crap looks like something acquired at a flea market.
Okay, maybe we don’t know art, we believe we do, however it’s the second part that has everyone up in arms and asking a lot of questions.
The second part is who is running this place
Chairman of the Board David Di Pietro, Esquire whose wife is Broward County Court Judge, Nina W. Di Pietro, and Broward County Commissioner Mindy Shrago, married to former Broward Judge Jay Spechler. She is the Executive Director/CEO of the museum.
It turns out that Mindy Shrago has had several of her family members employed at the museum, collecting pay checks while the museum has not been paying it’s debts.
Public records show Shrago’s salary has increased since the museum defaulted on its county payments.
Her salary went from $125,000 in 2012, to $140,387 in 2013, to $152,407 last year, to $160,680 today.
