by JACK ZINK for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel

With the opening of the $450million downtown Miami arts complex two months away, the center and one of its two halls were re-christened Wednesday, courtesy of a pair of multi-million dollar naming gifts by two high-profile Miami arts benefactors.

The Miami Performing Arts Center became the Carnival Center for the Performing Arts, the result of a total of $20 million in gifts from Carnival Corporation.
