In partnership with the Community Foundation of Broward, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and the City of Fort Lauderdale, and with support from the Museum of Discovery and Science and Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale, the Fort Lauderdale Downtown Development Authority is excited to announce that internationally acclaimed artist Arlin Graff has been selected to install an original art mural on the Arts & Entertainment (A&E) District Garage located in DowntownFTL at 101 SW 5 Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. On Wednesday, Nov. 7 there will be a Ribbon Cutting celebration outside Broward Center for the Performing Arts on the Wendt Terraces overlooking the New River. Local elected officials, the Community Foundation of Broward, partner agency representatives/board members, School Board partners, Broward Workshop members, community members and more will be in attendance. This event is open to the public. Guests will enjoy light refreshments.

The installation of this iconic art mural will elevate the overall aesthetics of the garage and will further connect the parking garage to the surrounding arts and science centers. This art mural will create a sense of place for the Riverwalk A&E District and a recognizable landmark along Himmarshee Street, a gateway into DowntownFTL.

Arlin’s unique geometric style is rooted in his childhood moments in rural Brazil, playing with scraps of wood in his father’s woodshed. As a teenager he began with street art and later studied Industrial Design in college. Arlin began to piece all these references together into his own type of deconstructionism; creating a very distinct style, giving life to his abstract creations that seem to be emerging from a digital work.

The Legendary House of Lords will be on hand to make sure we have a BALL. Vogue, or voguing, is a highly stylized, modern house dance originating in the late 1980s that evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene of the 1960s.[1] It gained mainstream exposure when it was featured in Madonna’s song and video “Vogue” (1990), and when showcased in the 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning.

Longtime Lindy hop creative Sugar Sullivan and South Florida Lindy Collective will be on hand this year to get the party in Swing! Lindy hop is an American dance which was born in Harlem, New York City in 1928 and has evolved since then with the jazz music of that time. It was very popular during the Swing era of the late 1930s and early 1940s. Lindy was a fusion of many dances that preceded it or were popular during its development but is mainly based on jazz, tap, breakaway, and Charleston.

Worlds Game Events is also part of the “Smash the Slumlords” campaign, and will be in attendance to make sure the SMASH Bash has Super Smash Bros. in attendance. Super Smash Bros.[1] is a series of crossover fighting video games published by Nintendo. It primarily features characters from their own franchises. The series was created by Masahiro Sakurai, who has directed every game in the series.

Stonewall National Museum is one of the country’s few LGBTQ-focused museums, and SMASH is honored to work with Stonewall in the historic creation of Miami’s first dedicated housing facility for LGBTQ Homeless Youth.

Friday October 19 from 8 PM-12 AM: Rachelle Coba releases her CD, “Blink”, at LauderAle.

“She plays the hell out of the guitar” – Matt “Guitar” Murphy

Rachelle earned a bachelors degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Miami. With all of these influences, Rachelle developed her own unique finger-style approach to blues rhythm and lead guitar playing. After college, Rachelle became known in Miami for her unique style and was cast in an indie movie, taught guitar for National Guitar Workshop, and worked on developing guitar methodology.

Her style eventually brought her to the attention of other blues artists. She worked with and toured as a guitarist with artists like Super Chikan, Albert Castiglia, Grady Champion and Ray Drew. After honing her skills as a side-woman, Rachelle stepped out on her own to front her own band. Since then, Rachelle has played around the world and she continues to grace the stage as one of the blues’ most original performers.

Rachelle’s band features AJ Kelly (bass), Raul Valdes (drums), Allen Paul (piano), and special guests. LauderAle is at 3305 SE 14th Ave in Fort Lauderdale, phone 954-653-9711 (http://lauderale.co). There is no cover charge.

ArtFTL returns for the 3rd year as the premier art fair in Fort Lauderdale, drawing collectors during the height of the season in South Florida. Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” due to its expansive and intricate canal system, and this 4-day curated art fair showcases the art within luxury waterfront properties. Attendees are transported via complimentary water taxi on an artistic journey along the famed Intracoastal waterways, in the heart of the arts and entertainment district.
The ArtCURATED sector will encompass an entire property of 5,000 to 10,000 square feet, and feature 40+ artists, within six distinct, thematic exhibitions, under the direction of Lisa Rockford.

Seeking art that corresponds to the following Exhibition Themes:
• ECSTASY: A Celebration of Color. Seeking Monochromatic artworks (made of a single/dominant, vivid color), or works that offer all colors in the rainbow, within one work.
• AURA: A celebration of Light. Seeking artworks that reference intense light, auras, or are made with neon, LEDs, florescent, incandescent lights, digital, or electric light components.
• NARCISSUS: Seeking art with mirrors, mirrored surfaces, and/or chrome, or polished stainless steel.
• ELEMENTAL: Earth and Water. Seeking artworks that emphasize earth or water, and/or the human connection to either. Artworks that reference ecological concerns, like sea level rise, and pollution, are of curatorial emphasis.

Jam, write, record and perform with the world’s greatest rock stars during Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp’s up-close-and-personal music experience headed to Fort Lauderdale Nov. 8 -11.

There’s no need to “Dream On” when you can play with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer guitarist JOE PERRY of AEROSMITH and “Bring It On Home” with legendary drummer JASON BONHAM of JASON BONHAM’S LED ZEPPELIN EVENING plus rock star counselors Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath), Monte Pittman (Madonna), Teddy Andreadis (Guns N’ Roses), Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts) Chip Z’Nuff (Enuff Z’Nuff), Kirk McKim (Pat Travers Band), Gretchen Menn (Zepparella), Alan Hewitt (The Moody Blues), Tanya O’Callaghan (Dee Snider, Maynard James Keenan), Gary Hoey and Stephen Gibb (Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society, Barry Gibb)!

The camp is also offering an opportunity to record with special guest Tony Bongiovi. Bongiovi’s work includes albums by The Ramones, Talking Heads, Aerosmith and Ozzy Osbourne.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become immersed in rock and roll for four incredible music-filled days. The fully interactive, participatory camp takes place in a non-competitive atmosphere that welcomes guitar players, bass players, vocalists, drummers and keyboard player at all skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp experience begins the moment of sign-up. After a skill level and musical preferences assessment, fantasy campers are placed in a band with other like-minded, similarly skilled musicians all ready to rock. Whatever their level of proficiency – from lead guitar to rhythm guitar to air guitar – abilities and confidence will grow during rehearsal under the constant guidance of rock star counselors.

These recognized musicians won’t simply coordinate your band, they’ll inspire in a series of intimate master classes on the camper’s chosen instrument, stage presence, and everything rock and roll, along with tales from the road. Our newest class, THE ROUNDTABLE, welcomes campers to bring their original song to work on with our incredibly talented and skilled rock star counselors. Campers will take part in Q&As with headliner and rock star counselors, parties, catering, road crew and more. Ultimately, attendees will practice, show-off skills in front of family and friends at camp, take photos, get memorabilia signed and then jam live, onstage, with Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Jason Bonham.

Spaces are limited and a variety of packages for both musicians and family and friends are available by visiting www.rockcamp.com/fantasy-camp-joe-perry-jason-bonham-2018.php.
