ABOUT THE SHOW
We are excited to announce the artists that will be exhibiting their artwork in the 3rd Annual “Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art + Music Show and we hope you will join us. This year’s tagline was inspired by the curator, Dana DellaCamera’s own journey allowing herself to “Be Seen” and no longer hide or be stopped by fear of judgment by others or herself.
“Cloud 9: Let Yourself Be Seen” Art and Music Show is a platform for artists to “Be Seen”, be vulnerable, and share their gifts, talents and message with the world. Cloud 9 is a world where you allow yourself to dream, trust, develop, risk, expand, take action and create without limitations! When we listen to our hearts and trust our inner selves we experience a burst of energy and discover pure joy.
All of the art that will be exhibited will be accompanied with a short paragraph from the artist as to why the pieces put them on “cloud 9″. The intention is for all who attend the exhibition to participate, leave inspired, empowered and alive.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Verizon, a three circuit 5K (3.1 mile) Run Walk, will once again wind its way through the streets of Downtown Fort Lauderdale. Known as “Florida’s Largest Office Party”, the run is open to employees of businesses, corporations, government agencies, financial institutions and non-profits – regardless of company size – and incorporates a special competition to award the overall men’s, women’s and co-ed teams in 20 different industries. Beginners can “ease into exercise” with friends and gain inspiration and motivation to continue walking and running to improve overall health, while competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers and lead the corporate team to victory. As part of the tri-county race circuit, a portion of the proceeds from the Fort Lauderdale run will benefit United Way.

Since its inception in 1985, the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run Series has grown to include more than 33,000 participants and attracts more than 1,200 South Florida companies.

NOTE: Entry fee is $40 per participant. No registrations accepted after March 5, 2015.
