Join us for a free night at the Museum of Graffiti as we welcome South African multi-disciplinary artist Faith XLVII

Internationally-acclaimed African street and studio artist Faith XLVII will be at the Museum of Graffiti to release a limited edition print of her original work entitled Chant II, a piece featured in the museum’s permanent collection. Chant II speaks to the arson attacks on commuter trains in her native South Africa which severely impacted members of the working class who rely so heavily on the public transportation system. According to Faith XLVII, “The work begs to question the insanity of how, in a time when we as a society most need to nurture and grow and heal, continue to burn and rage and decimate.” Concerns of the human condition appear repeatedly in Faith’s works which can be found in exhibitions and collections around the world.

The print is 18” x 24” on Moab Entrada Rag Natural 290 gsm paper. Limited Edition of 100. Prints will also be available online beginning May 6, 2022 at www.museumofgraffiti.com/shop

Faith will also be signing copies of her book, Ex Animo: 2010 -2018 The Work of Faith Forty Seven.

NOTE: Pre-Registration for this event is required for free entry. Tickets are $16 at the door.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB), a nonprofit organization committed to preserving and cultivating the arts in Broward County, will present its fifth annual “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” special event on Monday, April 25, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. This elegant black and white themed cocktail party at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale will feature an exclusive exhibit tour, live entertainment by Dillard High School Center for the Arts students, light bites and a decadent dessert table.

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience Lux et Veritas, a FAB-funded exhibit, at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale on a private tour by Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. Lux et Veritas explores a transformative period in contemporary art by focusing on a generation of artists of color who attended Yale School of Art for graduate studies between 2000 and 2010. The exhibition’s title alludes to Yale University’s motto, “Lux et Veritas,” which translates from Latin to “Light and Truth.” In the context of this exhibition, the title references how these artists thought with critical complexity about their work and their movement through institutional structures. Featured artists include Mike Cloud, william cordova, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Abigail DeVille, Torkwase Dyson, John Espinosa, Luis Gispert, Rashawn Griffin, Leslie Hewitt, Loren Holland, Titus Kaphar, Jamerry Kim, Eric N. Mack, Wardell Milan, Wangechi Mutu, Mamiko Otsubo, Ronny Qevedo, Mickalene Thomas, Anna Tsouhlarakis, Shoshanna Weinberger and Kehinde Wiley.

As with similar programs, Yale School of Art, in New Haven, Connecticut, had not been historically diverse, which spurred these art students to form affiliations across the departments of painting, graphic design, sculpture, photography and art history. They filled gaps in the school’s curriculum and counteracted the lack of diversity among the faculty by inviting artists, curators and writers of color as advisors and guest speakers, developing an interdisciplinary forum, publishing art journals, organizing exhibitions and documenting their experiences in video and photography. The relationships they formed at school evolved into communities that networked and provided essential support and feedback for one another, often passing on these efforts beyond graduate study. Their reevaluation of the Western art canon, and commitment to the method and practice of teaching has contributed to a greater recognition of artists of color, challenged stereotypes and enriched the overall shared spaces of learning and thinking about art and the art praxis.

Lux et Veritas provides a public forum in which to address the directions these artists took based on the explorations that began in graduate school and were instilled thereafter in their practice. The exhibition is curated by Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator, NSU Art Museum. Mike Cloud (Yale, MFA 2003), william cordova (Yale, MFA 2004), Leslie Hewitt (Yale, MFA 2004) and Irene V. Small, associate professor, Contemporary Art & Criticism, Princeton University (Yale, Ph.D. 2008) are advisors on the exhibition. Oral histories with the artists who attended the School of Art provided significant insight into their experiences, relationships, and work.

Lux et Veritas is presented by S. Donald Sussman and sponsored by Funding Arts Broward.

Champagne and cocktails, culinary delights, and selections by DJ Israel Charles, arts and music program director at Dillard High School Center for the Arts, will add to this festive event. Guests are encouraged to dress in their favorite black and white cocktail attire.

This event is for FAB members, friends and public supporters of the arts. Tickets for “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” are $75 per person and are available at https://bit.ly/FABNightAtTheMuseum2022. For more information, please call (954) 353-7673 or email fundingartsbroward@gmail.com.

MY Self Wellness, a cutting-edge ketamine clinic and a pioneer in the psychedelics space, is pleased to exhibit at Cannadelic Miami, and screen its never-before-seen documentary, “Lighter: A Ketamine Experience.”

MY Self Wellness exists to assist and empower individuals on their health and wellness journey by combining the healing benefits of ketamine with new lifestyle practices for a full mental reset. With the goal to help individuals get back to wellness so they can live a happy and joy-filled life again, MY Self Wellness has experience treating depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, chronic pain, and more. The clinic prides itself on providing compassionate care and features private treatment rooms, an integration lounge, reclining chairs, Bluetooth headphones, blankets and sleep masks.

Screening at Cannadelic Miami, “Lighter: A Ketamine Experience” is a one-hour feature-length documentary that explores the life journeys of three individuals (Jess, Chad, Michael) who each struggle with the ongoing dilemma of anxiety, trauma and addiction. In search of healing, they commit to a therapeutic modality like no other, ketamine therapy, which allows for a psychedelic experience of personal transformation. “Lighter” features accomplished psychedelic professionals, Dr. Michelle Weiner and Dustin Robinson, Esq. CPA, as a testimony for the healing effects of ketamine as an alternative solution for people facing mental health struggles. Cody Withrow of Soap Tree Media filmed and served as the documentary’s director. MY Self Wellness co-produced the film with Gregory Scott.

Taking place at the Miami Airport Convention Center, Feb. 5-6, Cannadelic Miami is a two-day conference and expo that will explore the business and science of both cannabis and psychedelics. The event will feature special talks by top names in cannabis and psychedelics, expert panels, workshops and more than 100 exhibitors including cannabis and hemp industry buyers and suppliers, lifestyle brands and accessories, cannabis retailers, emerging psychedelic businesses and more.

Events in which MY Self Wellness is participating at the conference include:

“Our network of loving and conscious practitioners empowers and assists individuals in unblocking their natural healing energies by combining the healing benefits of ketamine with new lifestyle practices for a full mental reset,” said Christina Thomas, president and founder of MY Self Wellness. “With these tools, we believe patients can transcend their traumas and let go of obstacles on every level of physical, psychological and spiritual blockages.”

“We are excited to participate in Cannadelic Miami and showcase the documentary, ‘Lighter.’ This conference puts us at the forefront of the psychedelic revolution,” she continued.

MY Self Wellness administers ketamine in a number of ways including intravenous infusion (IV), intramuscular injection (IM), orally and sublingually (as a dissolving troche or lozenge). Each route varies per individual in the onset of action (time), bioavailability (absorption) and clearing time. Although a response is generally predictable based on past administration, it is possible that a patient may experience different physiological, psychological and emotional effects with the same dose. Treatments begin at $599 per session; most effective regimens include a total of six sessions.

“Like so many others who have been through trauma and addiction, I found myself lost and unable to cultivate healing. I spent many years hiding from myself and unable to understand how to create a joyful, purposeful life,” said Charles Patti, brand ambassador of MY Self Wellness. “It wasn’t until I incorporated therapeutic psychedelics into my regime that I began to see a transformation. My goal is to share my story on a global level to encourage others to try ketamine therapy and begin their healing journey.”

In celebration of Black History Month, History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present “60 Years of Black Art,” a fine art exhibit featuring works for show and sale from Dillard Center for the Arts’ Advanced Placement (AP) students, from February 1 – 28. The exhibit, curated by instructor Celestin Joseph, represents historical and contemporary themes of equality from the perspective of students at the very school that was instrumental in overturning segregation laws in the City of Fort Lauderdale 51 years ago. The exhibit will be open to the public at the New River Inn building of History Fort Lauderdale and will be accessible as a digital experience on History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“60 Years of Black Art,” will feature a variety of styles and mediums reflecting African American culture, arts and entertainment and the ongoing struggle for inclusion and acceptance. Featured pieces in the exhibition include works by AP students Angel Pena, Naima Cornelius, Lewis James, Jennifer Turner and Tay Small, among others.

Joseph received his master’s in fine arts in painting from the University of Pennsylvania. He received a bachelor’s in fine arts, cum laude, from the University of Hartford as a painting major, with an art history minor, and concentrations in printmaking and graphic design studies. Joseph also received a prestigious Yale/Norfolk Art and Music Scholarship to further his studies. Currently, he is teaching Advanced Placement studio art classes at his alma mater Dillard Center for the Arts where he has been strengthening the visual arts program since 1999.

“60 Years of Black Art,” is one of several engaging multicultural experiences at History Fort Lauderdale. Permanent exhibits include “From Dugouts to Dream Yachts,” a visual narrative weaving the story of the ever-changing use of Fort Lauderdale’s waterways by following the strokes of the first people to today’s sightseers, “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of stories and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting Caribbean, Latin, Native American and women artists sharing their views of history and an artists’ collective collaborative space.

“60 Years of Black Art,” is sponsored, in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward County Cultural Council and Visit Lauderdale.

History Fort Lauderdale is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request.

When the topic is street art, there is no way around him: Banksy is probably the most famous and also the most mysterious graffiti artist in the world. The approximately 40-year-old Brit successfully keeps his identity secret; his works, however, conquer not only the streets, but also the auction houses of the world. Highly successful, Banksy is regarded as one of the most valuable artists of our time. The Art of Banksy: Without Limits shows more than 155 of the artist’s works, such as his original art, prints on different kinds of materials, photos, sculptures, and much more. Some of his works have even been reproduced with his stencil technique especially for the exhibition. A video documentary will also provide insight into his life and work, all presented in a unique setting. The show promises a genuinely impressing experience, and is a “must see” to celebrate Banksy’s art and carry it out into the wider world.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB), a nonprofit organization committed to preserving and cultivating the arts in Broward County, will present its fifth annual “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” special event on Monday, January 10, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. This elegant black and white themed cocktail party at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale will feature exclusive exhibit tours, live entertainment, light bites and a decadent dessert table.

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience The Art of Assemblage, Margarita Cano: 90 Years and Jared McGriff: Where We Are You at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale on a private tour by Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale.

The Art of Assemblage features sculptures composed of found objects and repurposed materials in inventive and fanciful ways. In the practice of assemblage, materials such as scrap metal, broken shells, tattered fabrics and discarded toys are salvaged and brought together in unexpected combinations, creating poetic abstractions of everyday life. The exhibition is drawn primarily from the Museum’s collection and includes recent acquisitions to the Museum’s permanent collection by artists John Outterbridge, Vanessa German, Pablo Cano, and a collaborative work by Jorge Pardo and Jason Rhoades. It also includes works by Christian Holstad, Ernesto Neto and Jessica Stockholder, and significant artworks from the Museum’s collections of African and CoBrA art. This exhibition is curated by Ariella Wolens, Bryant-Taylor curator.

Margarita Cano: 90 Years celebrates Miami-based artist Margarita Cano’s remarkable long life and records her transition from Cuba to America, scientist to art services librarian, and finally, to a painter of dreams. This exhibition will encapsulate Cano’s multi-disciplinary practice as a self-taught artist whose creativity has manifested through wondrous miniature books, votive portraits, landscapes paintings, prints and photographs. Cano’s art is a portal into a celestial world in which memories are transformed into sacred visions of life and loss. This exhibition is curated by Bonnie Clearwater with Ariella Wolens. This exhibit is sponsored by Rita Holloway.

The first solo museum exhibition of Miami artist Jared McGriff, Where We Are You, showcases his dreamlike paintings that remain timeless, even as he integrates his family’s history of migration from the rural south to the rural west of Oklahoma and California into the realities of the present. The exhibition’s title, Where We Are You, encapsulates notions of African Ubuntu philosophy, where the individual becomes the whole through the experience of the group. McGriff’s compositions of single and grouped figures embody the guiding principle for many early cultures that each individual’s actions impact others and society. This exhibit is curated by Bonnie Clearwater and sponsored by Sandra Muss.

Champagne and cocktails, culinary delights, and selections by Israel Charles, arts and music program director at Dillard High School, will add to this festive event. Guests are encouraged to dress in their favorite black and white cocktail attire.

Tickets for “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” are $75 per person and are available at fundingartsbroward.org. For more information, please call (954) 353-7673 or email fundingartsbroward@gmail.com.

Tri-Rail, South Florida’s premier commuter rail system, invites vocally inclined children ages 5 to 17 to audition for “South Florida’s Kids Got Talent,” a singing competition held as part of Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day.” Young singers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are encouraged to audition for the chance to compete in the judged event. Auditions will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 11, at Galleria Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Boulevard).

The singing competition is open to solo or group singers who are South Florida residents. Each act will have a four-minute opportunity to perform at the auditions. Judges will select the acts that will compete in the final competition, which is scheduled for Saturday, February 19, during Tri-Rail’s 13th annual “Rail Fun Day.” This year’s competition winner will receive a $500 grand prize, a photo shoot with composite cards courtesy of Posche Models & Talent and a professional studio recording session with MikeSoperMusic.

In 2019, 10-year-old Carly Cantor of Wellington was crowned the winner of Tri-Rail’s “South Florida’s Kids Got Talent.” Cantor’s stage presence and performance of “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5 won over the crowd and judges.

Over the past 10 years, Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day” has welcomed more than 23,000 families. The event has become an annual tradition as a free afternoon of interactive games, arts and crafts, and entertainment while promoting the benefits of riding the commuter rail system.

Supporters can be there in-person or choose to vote for their favorite man of style with proceeds benefiting 12 respected local charities that impact the quality of life for those they serve and the community at large.

The 12 influential South Florida men who have graciously donated their time and resources to worthy causes and will work the runway on behalf of their participating nonprofits are:

World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) and Galleria Fort Lauderdale will kick off World AIDS Day on December 1 with Rock the Ribbon, a public event designed to raise awareness and voices in unison for global health!

Rock The Ribbon will commence at 8:30 a.m. with a gathering of elected officials including City of Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Special performances by the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating, Camie Liz and DJ Aulden Brown will add flair to rock the crowd. The event will take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at WAM’s Rock The Ribbon page.

The public is also invited to view a portion of the AIDS Memorial Quilt which portrays powerful stories of activism, love, healing, hope and remembrance to connect the story of HIV/AIDS to the important issues impacting our nation, today. The quilt is on display through Dec. 10.

According to National AIDS Memorial, 40 years into the AIDS pandemic, more than 700,000 lives in the U.S. have been lost to AIDS and more than 1.1 million people live with HIV and an estimated 1 in 7 people do not know they have HIV. In the last figures reported in 2018, Black/African American gay and bisexual men account for the largest number of new HIV diagnoses.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt was conceived in November of 1985 by long-time San Francisco gay rights activist Cleve Jones. On October 11, 1987, the Quilt was displayed for the first time on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., during the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It covered a space larger than a football field and included 1,920 panels. Today, the AIDS Memorial Quilt is an epic 54-ton tapestry that includes nearly 50,000 panels dedicated to more than 105,000 individuals. It is the premiere symbol of the AIDS pandemic, a living memorial to a generation lost to AIDS and an important HIV prevention education tool. With hundreds of thousands of people contributing their talents to making the memorial panels, and tens of thousands of volunteers to help display it, the Quilt is considered the largest community arts project in history.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt Display and World AIDS Day kickoff ceremony are sponsored by Galleria Fort Lauderdale, Our Fund, Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus, Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward County Cultural Council, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau and Florida Department of State, Division of Arts & Culture.

Curated by Tara Chadwick and Tia Blais-Billie, “A Return to Self: The Art of Healing” will showcase a variety of contemporary and traditional media including oils, acrylics, fiber, glass, metals, mixed media and digital art from 25 Seminole artists spanning 5 generations: Elgin Jumper, Eden Jumper, Durante Blais-Billie, Tia Blais-Billie, Iretta Tiger, Brian Zepeda, Corinne Zepeda, Erica Dietz, Ruby Dietz, Wilson Bowers, Jessica Osceola, Alyssa Osceola, Jackie Osceola, Jacob Osceola, Madeline Osceola, Samuel Tommie, Daniel Tommie, Carla Cypress, Danielle Nelson, Donna Frank, Stephanie Hall, Nicholas DiCarlo, Gordon Oliver Wareham, Leroy Osceola, and the late Jimmy Osceola.

Permanent exhibits include “From Dugouts to Dream Yachts,” a visual narrative weaving the story of the ever-changing use of Fort Lauderdale’s waterways by following the strokes of the first people to today’s sightseers, “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of stories and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean, Latin and women artists sharing their views of history and an artists’ collective collaborative space.

Explore the whimsical world of French-Lebanese artist RACHEL K in her first US solo exhibition at the W Miami during Miami Art Week 2021.

Known for her larger-than-life sculptures and art pieces combining papier-mâché, paint, fiber collage and tiny vintage toys from all over the world, Rachel K’s art is a nod to our childhood fantasies and pop culture icons.

But there is no “toying around” for the Winner of the Best International Solo Artist at the World Art Dubai Awards 2017. Her latest pièce de résistance Wings of Joy is a whopping 100 x 45” sculpture that will have its debut reveal exclusively for this event. If this won’t have Instagramers flocking for a photo op, Rachel K’s sculptures on showcase – think Marge Simpson, Mickey Mouse and Super Mario Flower – will make art collectors bid for a joyful addition to their homes.

Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Cesar A. Becerra on the next August 12 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at https://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBecerra.

Cesar A. Becerra is the author of Orange Blossom 2.0, a soon-to-be-released novel debuting in conjunction with the City of Miami’s 125th anniversary. Orange Blossom 2.0 is based on Becerra’s decades of research that tells the true story of the founding of Miami and the remarkable contributions of landowner, developer and savvy businesswoman Mary Brickell who seems to have been largely overlooked and overshadowed in the pages of our past. The book is available for purchase at www.sofloweird.com/product-page/orange-blossom-2-0

A South Florida historian who’s taken part in chronicling and sharing the stories of the region for more than two decades, Becerra is the author of half a dozen books ranging from hiking the Appalachian Trail to the logging history of the Big Cypress Preserve. Becerra is an avid explorer who drove through all 50 states in a one-year road trip to rediscover America for The Travel Channel. He has also hiked the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, in 388 days through 14 states and 4 seasons. Becerra is former publisher of The Everglade Magazine, an award winning publication printed during Everglades National Park’s 50th anniversary. He has walked, hiked, slogged, canoed, kayaked, airboated and swamp buggied all across the Everglades. In 1997, The Miami Herald named him an “Everglades Evangelist.” Cesar’s love for the past and sense of adventure is where his two worlds unite. He has a penchant for hidden history and knows no boundaries or distances when it comes to searching for it.

Becerra joins previous novelists Dr. Joe Knetsch and Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

Locust Projects presents Hidden in Plain View, the seventh edition of the LAB MFA summer exhibition program featuring Victoria Ravelo, MFA candidate at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University.

Ravelo will be in residence June 1-30, during which time she will transform the storefront Mobile Studio into a working laboratory in which she will create sugar sculptures daily. The use of sugar references the ties of the local community to the Caribbean and the impact the sugar industry has had on the Caribbean as well as its historical significance and influence globally. Although initially only available to those in the ruling class and used as an opulent display of wealth, sugar evolved to become so accessible that those outside of this class developed their own traditions associated with it that continue today.

The finished collaboratively-created installation, on view from July 1 through August 7, serves as an archive of local memory and maps the cultural landscape of Miami’s diverse communities through space and time.

Locust Projects presents Rhythm of Speech, a new experimental audiovisual installation by Miami-based artist and musician Juan Ledesma. Ledesma’s first solo presentation draws connections between diverse musical traditions and our collective lived experiences by exploring the musical potential of spoken accents.

Ledesma’s artistic practice is in constant dialogue with his music-making and seeks to identify how space, time, and sound can materially relate to one another through process-driven explorations. For Rhythm of Speech, the artist invited three Miami-based musicians to create a musical score based on a linguistic analysis of their respective accents. Although accents are commonly considered linguistic indicators of nationality, cultural upbringing, or socio-economic background, Ledesma aims to reframe language as a collective repository of sounds that can be used towards creative musical compositions.

Locust Projects presents Homeline, a new site-specific installation by mutlidisciplinary artists Tal Amitai-Lavi and Tal Frank.

Homeline is inspired by the architectural structures of Locust Projects’ Main Gallery. The installation is composed of three domestic elements created out of unexpectedly weightless materials, including light and delicately-installed nylon strings- a window that separates the space, a projected carpet, and a slowly flowing curtain. These objects generate a succinct, close-knit architectural-sculptural setting in black and white. The installation explores reflections, inversions, illusions, and space disruptions and creates an illusionistic, dreamlike environment. Viewers are confronted by their perception and senses, entering a world whose foundations are fragile, in which life-sized architectural structures have lost their functionality and expected physicality.

By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. Primarily a self-taught artist, Forman’s work is the result of dedicated practice. He uses field sketches, plein air paintings, and photographs to compose his pieces that are painted in layers with both knife and brush.

Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at http://bit.ly/HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center will present Through the White Door, a documentary photo project by photojournalist Smiley Pool that portrays the interconnected human experience of families affected by HIV/AIDS, at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Blvd.) from April 8 – 30. The exhibition, consisting of 40 poignant images from South Africa, Romania, North Carolina, Texas and beyond, depicts the life struggles and triumphs of children and families affected by HIV/AIDS captured by Pool from his inspirational book of the same name.

The Through the White Door photography project by Pool spans over two decades following a remarkable group of people who faced the HIV/AIDS crisis head-on and saved a generation of children. The project began with two newspaper stories at the Houston Chronicle in the 1990s with the rest of the work completed on his vacation time for the 20 years that followed — around his staff photographer positions at the Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News. Over the years he continued to follow one of the first children in the world on a drug trial for highly active antiretroviral therapy until adulthood, and documented the formation and rise of the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) from the organization’s inception in Texas to what it is today – the largest provider of care and treatment for HIV positive children in the world.

The project culminated with an oversized hardcover book with 212 pages of his photography. Text for the book was written by Jessica Johns Pool, his spouse, who is a writer specializing in health care. Together, TTWD is their way of sharing the stories of the extraordinary and inspirational people they have met along the way.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center’s presentation of the Through the White Door exhibit is sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale and supported by the Broward County Cultural Council and Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants.

Meet Smiley Pool, photojournalist/co-author of Through the White Door, a documentary photo project and exhibit that portrays the interconnected human experience of families affected by HIV/AIDS, at the VIP benefit for the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Blvd.) on April 7. Tickets for the benefit are $25 each and are available, online, at http://bit.ly/WAMThroughTheWhiteDoor. The exhibition, consisting of 40 poignant images from South Africa, Romania, North Carolina, Texas and beyond, depicts the life struggles and triumphs of children and families affected by HIV/AIDS captured by Pool from his inspirational book of the same name, runs at The Galleria from April 8 – 30.

The Through the White Door photography project by Pool spans over two decades following a remarkable group of people who faced the HIV/AIDS crisis head-on and saved a generation of children. The project began with two newspaper stories at the Houston Chronicle in the 1990s with the rest of the work completed on his vacation time for the 20 years that followed — around his staff photographer positions at the Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News. Over the years he continued to follow one of the first children in the world on a drug trial for highly active antiretroviral therapy until adulthood, and documented the formation and rise of the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) from the organization’s inception in Texas to what it is today – the largest provider of care and treatment for HIV positive children in the world.

Text for the book was written by Jessica Johns Pool, his spouse, who is a writer specializing in health care. Together, TTWD is their way of sharing the stories of the extraordinary and inspirational people they have met along the way.

Smiley Pool has photographed his fair share of history. Some of those events will appear in the history books, but he’s always found the family scrapbook variety more rewarding. His favorite assignments are the police officers, cancer survivors, schoolchildren, AIDS patients, street preachers, and countless other people who welcome him into their lives and allow him to help tell their stories. Along the way he’s garnered his share of awards — most notably for contributing the aerial photography in The Dallas Morning News’ coverage of Hurricane Katrina that won the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography. The Associated Press Managing Editors Texas chapter has named him Star Photojournalist of the Year six times. He has also won numerous POYi, Best of Photojournalism, and National Press Photographers Association awards. He’s covered thousands of high school, college, and pro football games; 10 Olympic games; at least a dozen hurricanes; and dozens of presidents, popes, kings, and queens. He even spent a year embedded with the crew of NASA’s final Space Shuttle mission.
He currently works as a staff photographer at The Dallas Morning News, and previously worked for the Houston Chronicle, the Colorado Springs Gazette, Austin American-Statesman, and St. Louis Suburban Journals (as a stringer in high school). When not on assignment, he volunteers at a summer camp for HIV+ youth with his wife Jessica Johns Pool and travels the world, sometimes just to see total eclipses.

Smiley Pool’s book Through the White Door with personalization and autographs will be available for purchase at the opening reception for $45. All proceeds will benefit World AIDS Museum and Educational Center.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, guests attending the benefit opening reception at The Galleria, will be required to wear a mask and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart. The opening reception is limited to 100 guests.

The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center’s presentation of the Through the White Door exhibit is sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale and supported by the Broward County Cultural Council and Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will celebrate Women’s History Month and World Water Month with “Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” a visual narrative by award-winning artist Lisette Morales. The exhibit will open on Monday, March 8, International Women’s Day, with a special livestream virtual reception via YouTube where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A with Morales, at 4 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through May 28 in the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale) and available digitally via History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is a project created entirely in 2020 and 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This exhibition at History Fort Lauderdale begins with a series of images highlighting Miccosukee Grandmother and Everglades conservationist Betty Osceola, Panther Clan, and her work promoting respect and awareness for our planet by organizing Indigenous prayer walks through the Everglades. It also highlights a collection of portraits of women who work or live in Immokalee and whose strength and perseverance are admirable and worthy.

Lisette Morales is a Nicaraguan-born photojournalist and interdisciplinary artist based in Florida. Her camera has been her tool for activism since the early ‘90s when she traveled through war-torn areas of Central America, documenting the disruption from military conflicts. After surviving domestic violence in her own life, Morales turned to painting and illustration as a mode of catharsis and self-expression. Her work echoes the feminist worldview that she now embodies and has been featured in numerous publications. In recent years, Morales has returned to photography as her media of choice. Morales was an official delegate to the United Nations Women 2018 Commission on the Status of Women. She is a member of the Artful Activist, Zuma Press, The Authority Collective, ArtAid Naples and Colectivo Liminal.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is one of several stories that History Fort Lauderdale is proud to offer during Women’s History Month. In addition to this exhibit, History Fort Lauderdale and The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale will also present “Women Trailblazers: Champions of Change – Broward County,” another photography exhibition, March 4 -31. This exhibit, to be displayed at The Galleria (2414 East Sunrise Blvd), will showcase six prominent women of today who are proponents of change along with historical female predecessors who helped to pave the way for our community. A ticketed exhibition preview and recognition ceremony honoring these women of today and benefiting History Fort Lauderdale will take place on Wednesday, March 3, at 5:30 p.m., at The Galleria. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/HFLWomenTrailblazers.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, is proud to spotlight the creativity and contributions of Broward County’s African American community. In honor of Black History Month, History Fort Lauderdale will host “Black History, Black Future,” a fine art exhibit featuring works for show and sale from Dillard Center for the Arts’ Advanced Placement (AP) students, from February 2 – 28. The exhibit, curated by instructor Celestin Joseph, represents a contemporary view of Black History from the perspective of students at the very school that was instrumental in overturning segregation laws in the City of Fort Lauderdale 50 years ago. The exhibit will be open to the public at the New River Inn building of History Fort Lauderdale and will be accessible as a digital experience on History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“Black History, Black Future” will feature a variety of styles and mediums reflecting African American culture, arts and entertainment and the ongoing struggle for equality. Featured pieces in the exhibition include works by Tayshaun Small and Mikayle Morrison, both currently AP studio art students mentored by Joseph, himself a Dillard alumnus.

“Black History, Black Future,” is one of several insightful experiences at History Fort Lauderdale. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.

Honey Baby is a video installation created by Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio. Inspired by motion in utero, the video captures a folding and tumbling body suspended in a honey filled environment. The fourteen-minute video brings its subject incrementally closer until a collapse of space presses the viewer up against the body. The sound of the video is an interpretation of what the baby would hear in utero. Honey Baby reveals a uniquely sensual relationship between subject and host.

On High at Locust Projects features Paula Wilson’s 2017 video Living Monument, a one-minute, two-channel video. On one screen is footage compiled from online sources of the confederate General Beauregard Equestrian Statue’s removal in New Orleans in April of 2017. On the second, is a video of a covert performance by the artist, in which she dances at dawn atop the plinth before she was forced to leave the premises by law enforcement. Inspired by the vibrant jazz funeral tradition of Second-Line Parades in New Orleans, Wilson uses the empty base as a pedestal to be acted upon—celebrating, in a hand-painted costume, the creative forces required for transformation. The tunic the artist created and is wearing in the video is also featured in the exhibition.

Made By Dusk is a space inspired by the Nordic Goddess, Freya, the untamed goddess of love, war, beauty, gold, and transformation. Upon entering the installation, the visitor is met with walls covered in flickering light and shadows cast from suspended golden wire sculptures shaped as Freya’s chariot-pulling cats. Beyond lies a great gray and golden hall to evoke the in-between space of twilight or dusk, with walls draped in massive tapestries surrounding a floating amphitheater of seats facing a central throne. In Norse mythology, Freya’s Hall of Seats would receive fallen warriors, here it is a place of refuge and inward reflection and gathering of feminine forces and transformative powers needed to battle inequities and injustices and be the catalyst for transformational social change.

The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean, Latin and women artists sharing their views of history and an artists’ collective collaborative space.

“Circle of Unity” is sponsored, in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. Funding for this project is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council.

Following eight consecutive years of instant sell-outs, the wildly popular all-ages tribute show brings Halloween’s most beloved classic to life with incredible detail. The audience is invited to take a dive into ‘90s nostalgia as South Florida’s top drag performers transform into the film’s iconic characters. All are invited to join this limited-seating, socially distanced event as they tell the story of three wacky witches, accidentally resurrected by teen pranksters on Halloween night in 1993. The dynamic lead cast includes Nicole Halliwell as Winifred Sanderson, Calypso Monroe as Sarah Sanderson and Nicky Monet as Mary Sanderson.

Produced and created by South Florida’s drag mastermind Nicole Halliwell (TLC’s I am Jazz, America’s Got Talent, Queenz The Drag Experience), IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS boasts intricately detailed sets, eerily uncanny lookalikes, replica props and costuming, and more in this immersive stage spectacle. Going light years beyond your standard “drag show,” there’s nothing quite like this! Prior to each performance, audiences can enjoy “Wicked Villains,” a “delightfully evil preshow,” starring the cast of QUEENZ The Drag Experience as even more fabulous female impersonators transform into such favorite cartoon villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella DeVille, and The Evil Queen.

Tickets are now on sale starting at $65 for general admission, and $75 for “front row” VIP, which includes a souvenir gift pack.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment (August 18, 1920) with Rightfully Hers, a new pop-up exhibition from the National Archives. Opening on August 3, Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of women’s voting rights before and after the 19th amendment, and its impact today. Despite decades of marches, petitions, and public debate to enshrine a woman’s right to vote in the constitution, the 19th Amendment – while an enormous milestone – did not grant voting rights for all. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today. Rightfully Hers will be on display through August 31 in The New River Inn (231 SW Second Avenue).

Rightfully Hers is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the National Archives has launched a nationwide initiative and major exhibition that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage. The exhibition is presented in part by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, and Denise Gwyn Ferguson.

History Fort Lauderdale is proud to showcase a variety of annual multicultural exhibits highlighting women, African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, visitors will be required to wear a mask and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart. Hand sanitizer will be available at the front desk admission point and all surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned multiple times a day. Additionally, guests will be asked to sign-in, daily, for contact tracing.

History Fort Lauderdale admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at http://bit.ly/HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present “The Art of Tim Forman: Beachscapes” from Sunday, July 5 – Sunday, September 27. Forman’s colorful and impressionist coastal-inspired works will be on display at the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue).

The grandson of renowned Davie dairy farmer, Hamilton Forman, Tim grew up in South Florida. Some of his favorite pastimes were visiting the beach, fishing in Biscayne Bay with his dad, and stargazing. He first picked-up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen. By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. Primarily a self-taught artist, Forman’s work is the result of dedicated practice. He uses field sketches, plein air paintings, and photographs to compose his pieces that are painted in layers with both knife and brush. He creates his landscapes to portray the splendor and simplicity of the natural world around us. Through his work, Tim seeks to lift the spirits and inspire awe above our day-to-day lives.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, visitors will be required to wear a mask and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart. Hand sanitizer will be available at the front desk admission point and all surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned multiple times a day. Additionally, guests will be asked to sign-in, daily, for contact tracing.

Entry to the exhibit is free with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID).

Cost:

This comprehensive solo exhibition is made possible through a CIP Grant awarded to Yochi Yakir-Avin by The Broward County Cultural Division. Additional support is provided by the exhibition host venue, The Frank C. Ortis Art Gallery in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Due to safety restrictions brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the bi-level solo show will be experienced through a 360 degree interactive tour accompanied by virtual programming. In the event that the Frank reopens to the public between June 25 and August 8, In Between will be accessible to the public in person as well. As complementary community offerings, a video tutorial workshop on Transfer techniques and a virtual musical performance will be offered online during the exhibition.
In Between is a retrospective presenting select works created by Yakir-Avin between 2015-2020. The exhibition reflects her technical education in Israel and Italy, and displays Yakir-Avin’s ability to communicate clearly through both figuration and abstraction. Her command of multiple media and techniques is demonstrated through oil paintings on canvas, mixed media works on paper and wood, and sculptural pieces that walk the line between art object and everyday furnishings.
Conveyed via a masterfully limited palette, her subjects are framed against swathes of monochromatic color and emphasize notions of mood, place and implied narrative. Within her intimate mixed media pieces on paper and wood, the artist draws creative inspiration from her past and allows her memories to weave together to drive her practice forward. Through a tangible sense of vulnerability embedded in each of her works, the artist aims to offer hope, comfort and peace to the viewer – resulting in a subtle message of optimism that is necessary at all times, particularly now.

We, as artist,s have a very important message to send and spread everywhere: our concern and love for our planet. Together we’ll find a way for everyone who shares her space, to make her a priority. She is that special, we are all connected.

What will happen to our existence …if what she provides is gone?

The National League of American Pen Women Coral Gables Chapter wants to extend a very cordial invitation. This group show will bring unity, camaraderie and bring their best art created.

Cost: $12 general, $8 senior and military, $5 students, children under 12 enter free. MDC students, faculty and staff enter free.

Dora García: Rezos/Prayers Miami is an innovative audio installation that focuses the Spanish artist’s performative practice onto a day in the life of Miami. Commissioned by MOAD, Rezos/Prayers Miami makes personal and specific experiences into collective and universal invocations.

For the Miami iteration of the Spanish artist’s ongoing project, first enacted in Madrid in 2007, eleven individuals, placed in various locations or public transit routes around the city, recorded forty-five-minute narrations of their observations, noting both every day and unexpected details. These recordings of “incessant description, recited like a prayer,” posted online as digital audio files, constitute an archive of subjective interpretations that document a particular place at a particular time.

Garcia says the “recited descriptions are as much of people, situations, attitudes, events, as of buildings, structures, itineraries, activities, routines, objects, atmospheres, circumstances, sounds, smells, including also the impressions, deductions, and intuitions of the describing or narrating subject.”

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will celebrate Women’s History Month, World Water Month, and the centennial year of Women’s Suffrage with “Through the Sawgrass: Women Impacting South Florida History,” a photography narrative by award-winning artist Lisette Morales. The exhibit will open on March 8, International Women’s Day, with a special reception where attendees will have the opportunity to meet some of the subjects and participate in a brief introduction and Q & A with Lisette Morales, via video conference, from 1 – 3 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through May 25 in the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale).

“Through the Sawgrass: Women Impacting South Florida History” addresses women’s issues, social injustice, migration, human rights, environmentalism, and LGBTQ concerns and features Betty Osceola (a Miccosukee grandmother and Everglades conservationist), Sister Maureen Kelleher (37 years as immigration attorney with Legal Aid Broward and Collier Counties), Melanie Oliva (artist and founder of the Artful Activist for social change) and Marta Sicaján (survivor of human trafficking and women’s empowerment leader).

Lisette Morales is a Nicaraguan-born photojournalist and interdisciplinary artist based in Florida. Her camera has been her tool for activism since the early ‘90s when she traveled
through war-torn areas of Central America, documenting the disruption from military conflicts. After surviving domestic violence in her own life, Morales turned to painting and illustration as a mode of catharsis and self-expression. Her work echoes the feminist worldview that she now embodies and has been featured in numerous publications. In recent years, Lisette has returned to photography as her media of choice. Lisette was an official delegate to the United Nations Women 2018 Commission on the Status of Women. She’s a member of the Artful Activist, Zuma Press, The Authority Collective, ArtAid Naples and Colectivo Liminal. Her current project is The Road to Immokalee documenting the women farmworkers of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers.

“Through the Sawgrass: Women Impacting South Florida History,” is one of several stories that History Fort Lauderdale is proud to spotlight. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Also currently on display is the new “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” permanent exhibit which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.

Entry to the new photography exhibit is free with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under.

About the artist: When most teenagers between adolescence and adulthood were transitioning, Jimmy Camille’s unique expressions of art were his outlet. His life-altering journey into the art world began at the age of seventeen. Born in the sunny city of West Palm Beach, Jimmy Camille is a self-taught artist found at many South Florida college campuses free-styling his works to the public. His thought provoking mixed mediums were the catalyst for his title “The Art Monster.” Jimmy’s vision can be seen in the beautiful intertwining of contemporary, pop, and abstract mediums, a platform that adds lucidity and relevance for his fast growing and captive audience.

The screening is followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Lea Petrikova. As a graduate from the Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM), both in Prague, Petrikova works as an artist, filmmaker and theorist. Since 2017 she has been a PhD Candidate at FAMU, Prague.

Cost: Free

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting “HamacaS,” a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami. As an integral part of the project, HamacaS will continue to develop and be presented throughout different locations in Miami after its inaugural run at MOCA North Miami.

HamacaS reconsiders the relational meaning of site and place for a group of people that both occupy several spaces at once and are rendered invisible in this country. The project asks us to imagine how immigrants carry place with them across borders and barriers. What purpose can a collective, shared space have for members of a community that is both villainized and erased at the same time? HamacaS is meant to act as a safe space for dialogue, debate, and understanding through engaging in making––the space between the hand and the mind that offers respite.

Liene Bosquê is a visual artist and art educator based in Miami. Bosquê’s artworks have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, at MoMA PS1 in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, among other places. In 2016, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, where she presented her first public sculpture. Recently, Bosquê was an artist in residence at Queens Museum’s ArtBuilt residency in New York, where she started the socially engaged project, HamacaS. Her work has been included in international exhibitions in Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, and South Korea; at places such as Museu de Historia Natural in Lisbon, Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, and Sesc in São Paulo.

HamacaS is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts as well as the WaveMaker Grants program presented by Locust Projects, and is supported by The55project.

The project will maintain public hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The artist will be onsite on 2/8, 2/9, 2/15, 2/16, 2/29, 3/1, 3/7, 3/8, 3/21, 3/22, 3/28 and 3/29 and welcomes the public to come participate.

On Wednesday, March 11, from 7:00-9:00 p.m., there will be a screening of 16mm film and digital video on the subject of weaving and culture surrounding this age-old craft. Screening to be followed by HamacaS artist Liene Bosquê and project coordinator Ana Clara Silva in conversation. The event is free and open to the public.

Guests are invited to a closing reception on Sunday, March 29 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

This creative Miami Art Mob Team is ready to Mob your senses with Art, Music, Drinks and much more in the very ❤️ of Downtown Miami at the Historic Macy’s Building – on the Second Floor Gallery. Sixteen artists will display their Miami Marine Stadium seats artworks at the Miami Art Mob Exhibition at the Historic Macy’s Building in Downtown Miami during Art Basel. Our artists will also exhibit their incredible artwork.

The Marine Stadium seat artwork project is sponsored by the City of Miami.

The seats are a part of a larger effort to continue to build support for the restoration of the Miami Marine Stadium. In 2017, original seats of the Marine Stadium were given to artists to allow the artists to create new works of art. Artists were told that they could do anything with the seat-keep it as is, take it apart, incorporate it into other art-just create a new piece of art that is inspired by the Marine Stadium. To date, over 60 artists have completed work on the project. Much attention to the “If Seats Could Talk” project has been given by the Press during our four-month long museim exhibition in Miami Beach.

All of the seats can be seen at: www.restoremarinestadium.org All of the Marine Stadium seat artworks will be available for purchase during our 2019 Art Basel exhibition. Angela Shlyakhov of Anzhelika Productions will curate our exhibit, as she had done numerous times before. The exhibit will also feature special photographs of the Marine Stadium by photographer Pedro Suarez.

Originally built for boat racing in 1963, the Miami Marine Stadium-located on Virginia Key on the way to Key Biscayne-is considered an icon in Miami. The Stadium’s folded plate roof was at one time the longest piece of cantilevered in the world. The Stadium is on the Federal Register of Historic Places and has been recognized as a national treasure by the National Trust ForHistoric Preservation. During its years of operation through 1992, the Stadium featured boat races, special events, and concerts by performers such as The Who, Jimmy Buffett. Elvis Presley even filmed a movie there. Closed since 1992, the City of Miami is now developing plans for its restoration. Many of

Over 30 artists will be featured at the Miami Art Mob 2019 Art Basel exhibition. Most of the artists are very well known local artists. This is a last chance to see the Historic Downtown Miami Macy’s building empty before tenants move in.
