History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will host its newest visual arts exhibit entitled “Paradise from Land to Sea: Photography of JohnBob Carlos” from March 3 – May 22, 2019. Photographs artistically capturing the beauty and majesty of Florida’s coastal vistas, skies and wildlife will be on display at the New River Inn.

JohnBob Carlos, a native Floridian and photographer, captures images of Florida’s wildlife, landscapes, cultures, and waterways. His art of the lens is his means for creating a voice for Florida’s nature and preserving Florida’s culture. At a young age he felt a calling to paddle, hike, fish, and explore the Everglades. He was at home among the hammocks, swamps, strands, animals, Mangrove Islands and Florida’s wild. In recent years Carlos has become deeply concerned about the state of Florida’s nature – the devastation of these areas mostly due to money, development, pollution, business and politics. He continues to realistically document the beauty and wonder of the world around us and uses his lens to focus on the region’s need for the greater conservation and preservation of resources.

Presented by History Fort Lauderdale, bringing the stories of our diverse community to life through engaging educational experiences, innovative cultural exhibits, research and preservation of artifacts. Residents and visitors to Fort Lauderdale are invited to explore the city’s rich past that is housed in historic buildings on a lushly landscaped campus – the History Museum of Fort Lauderdale situated in the 1905 New River Inn, the 1907 Pioneer House Museum, the 1899 Ivy Cromartie Schoolhouse Museum and the Hoch Research Library, South Florida’s foremost history center housing print resources and newspapers from 1910 – present plus 400,000 archival photos, 2,500 maps and 5,000 architectural blueprints. Museum hours are Monday – Friday from noon – 4 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. History Fort Lauderdale is a nonprofit agency supported by memberships, grants and charitable contributions.

His designs were inspired by the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright with the fusion of the outdoors and indoors through geometric forms and construction. The tour begins and ends at the New River Inn. Parking is available at the County Garage with entrance on 2nd Street. Lunch is included. Tour leaders are from BroCoMo.

Tickets are $59 per person and can be purchased at https://bit.ly/2xEE1q8.

Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will debut “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a new exhibit beginning September 25. There will be a members-only preview on September 24 at 6 p.m. before the public opening the following day.

Juliette A. Lange (1882-1977) was a socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy. At the apex of her career (1915-1930), Lange traveled the nation and Europe with theater companies performing popular musicals. As a longtime resident of the Rio Vista community, Lange was active in many civic, religious, social, and musical organizations. A legacy of her family is Lange Park in the city of Davie: former grove land contributed by Miss Lange three years prior to her passing.

This exhibit is a snapshot of fashion from 1920 – 1960. Lange’s beautiful gowns, hats and jewelry will be displayed along with programs and clippings from her fabulous days in professional theater. Visitors will explore early 20th century musical theater, the artist scene at that time in New York City, the Rio Vista neighborhood, citrus farming and Fort Lauderdale’s mid-century social and civic happenings.

“Tracing the Red Thread” at MOCA 9/6/2018

“Tracing the Red Thread” at MOCA
Thursday, 09/06/2018 – 11/04/2018 10:00 am –
Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami
770 NE 125th Street,
North Miami, Florida 33161
Website
Cost: $5

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami will present the exhibition “Tracing the Red Thread,” by distinguished South Florida-based artist Mira Lehr, Sept. 6 – Nov. 4, 2018. The multimedia, museum-wide installation will reflect Lehr’s eco-feminist philosophy, the concept of mankind working with nature rather than dominating over it. Lehr uses the classical myth of Ariadne to explore the beauty, fragility and interconnectedness of the endangered aquatic ecosystem of the South Florida coast.

In Lehr’s mesmerizing installation, two and three-dimensional works evoke dense thickets of mangroves, the dangerous beauty of jellyfish and the ethereal luminosity of the coral reef. Lehr creates a mysterious world whose seductive beauty reminds us not only of the gifts that nature gives us, but of the importance of preserving them for the future generations.

Comprised of a variety of multimedia works, “Tracing the Red Thread” focuses on climate change and environmental issues as a major factor facing mankind today. The exhibition draws on the lessons Lehr learned six decades ago working with Buckminster Fuller on his “World Game Project.” As Lehr learned in her work with Fuller, the earth must be seen as a unified island within the oceans so one is made aware of the interconnectedness of all life.

Admission to MOCA is $5, but free for MOCA members and North Miami residents. An artist reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 13, with an admission cost of $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.

62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball “East Meets West” 11/17/18

Cost:

This year, Vizcaya Ball organizers pave the “silk road” for philanthropists and attendees to explore the Eastern influences of the historic estate during the upcoming 62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball.
To the naked eye, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens design was decidedly Italian but woven into its tapestry are influences and inspiration that came from well beyond Europe and reached further east.
Examples can be found in the water channels in the Fountain Garden, reminiscent of Moghul garden design in Rajasthan; life-size sculpted peacocks in the Marine Garden symbolizing India; the O-bridge in the same garden inspired by similar bridges in China and Japan; and the Casba, the tiled, domed folly making playful reference to the Middle East. The decor in the Breakfast room and the Cathay guest bedroom in the Main House most aptly illustrates Chinoiserie, the style based on European interpretation of Chinese and Asian art and décor.
These influences will be celebrated as funds are raised for the continued preservation of the National Historic Landmark on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. presented by Chopard and fashions by renowned designer Naeem Khan. Music is provided by the Danny Beck Band and fireworks display by Add Fire of Miami.

How can cities tackle climate change and inequality at the same time? Surprisingly, research shows that guaranteeing housing affordability is key to effective climate policies in cities. Considering the cities of Sao Paulo, New York and others comparatively, Aldana finds that urban climate policies have failed because of a general political inability to address race and class inequalities.
