Named after a type of African woven-wood basket, Ukhamba is a ten-foot-tall circular structure with four arched entrances, built of curved wooden elements stacked in horizontal layers. Its construction invites visitors to walk inside and congregate but allows the surrounding plaza and urban landscape to remain visible through the structure. Inspired by Barnes’s time working abroad in South Africa, as well as in Miami, Ukhamba not only responds to Miami’s sub-tropical climate but also unites architectural elements typical of diasporic communities of African and Caribbean origin. It comprises a pavilion that appears part basket, part traditional breeze wall.

Ukhamba is a space for reflection on our relationship to the built environment, urban design, its histories, and cultural memories. Barnes’s pavilion continues the artists’ exploration of themes of spatial identity, migration, the cultural influences of the African diaspora, and its contributions to classical architecture. Primarily using materials found in South Florida, the artist has focused on sustainability and has designed a structure in dialogue with the history and natural environment that surrounds it.

Simmons, Collingwood, Morales, and Sirmans will discuss how Simmons and his work have played a key role in situating questions of race, class, and identity at the center of contemporary art discourse.

Over the course of his career, Simmons has aimed to expose and analyze histories of racism in visual culture. He has revealed traces of these histories in sports, cinema, literature, music, architecture, and urbanism, while drawing heavily on genres such as hip-hop, horror, and science fiction.

Simultaneous interpretation into American Sign Language, Haitian Creole, and Spanish will be provided.

Members Opening Reception: Walasse Ting: Parrot Jungle 11/9/23

Members Opening Reception: Walasse Ting: Parrot Jungle
Sunday, 11/09/2023-, 06:00 pm-08:00 pm
NSU Art Museum
One East Las Olas Boulevard,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33301
Website
Cost: $25

Walasse Ting: Parrot Jungle will be a comprehensive exhibition made to re-introduce audiences to the extraordinary world of artist Walasse Ting (b. 1928, Wuxi, China; d.2010, New York NY). Ting was one of the most radical and independent figures of his time, bridging the worlds of ancient Chinese aesthetics, the European avant-garde and the American Pop Art multiverse.
While Ting’s place within the art historic canon is recognized due to artist’s book 1¢ Life (1964), NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale will be the first American institution to go beyond this legacy and acknowledge Ting’s mastery within a monographic museum show.
This exhibition will provide viewers the opportunity to immerse themselves in Ting’s neon-soaked visions of nubile women, flora, fauna, and an endless menagerie of cats, parrots and hibiscus. Simultaneously, the show will establish a biographic narrative, in which viewers will learn about the diasporic life of Ting; whose transnational identity left him without the typical ambassadorship countries engage in to display their creative wealth.
Parrot Jungle will make South Florida Ting’s honorary home; one perfectly fitting given the artist’s love of the region. Ting and his family came to South Florida frequently to visit his in-laws, who were among the influx of Jewish residents who relocated here in the fifties and sixties. This exhibition will highlight how Ting’s signature motifs were inspired by these trips, where he discovered and fell in love with the wildlife park Parrot Jungle, a landmark he documented in hundreds of photographs and countless on-site drawings.
This exhibition is in dialogue with the Museum’s Cobra Collection, which includes essential works by Ting and is the largest holding of artworks created by affiliates of the post-war movement known as CoBrA (an acronym for the founding artists’ native cities:
Copenhagen – Brussels – Amsterdam) within the United States. The Cobra artists stood for freedom, spontaneity, collaboration, interdisciplinary practice and ceaseless experimentation. These values resonated profoundly with Walasse Ting upon his arrival to Paris in 1953, leading him to establish lifelong friendships with key Cobra figures Pierre Alechinsky (b.1927, Brussels, Belgium; lives and works in Bougival, France), Karel Appel (b. 1921, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; d. 2006, Zurich, Switzerland) and Asger Jorn (b.1914, Jutland, Denmark; d. 1973, Aarhaus, Denmark). In the spirit of Cobra and our Museum’s ethos, this exhibition will champion Walasse Ting as a citizen of the world, one who made many places, including South Florida, his honorary home, and created a unique oeuvre that was passionately enriched by all he encountered.
This exhibition is curated by the Museum’s Bryant Taylor Curator, Ariella Wolens. It will be accompanied by a full-color, hard bound monograph published by Skira, edited and with an essay by Wolens and additional text by Pierre Alechinsky, Bonnie Clearwater, Xiao (Amanda) Ju, and Ting’s daughter Mia Ting.
Walasse Ting: Parrot Jungle is sponsored by those who wish to remain anonymous, Stephen & Joan Marks, Barron Family Foundation, Imperfect Family Foundation, Funding Arts Broward, Inc., Sam Francis Foundation in honor of Francis’ 100th Birthday, Marlène Brody, Marion Lefebre & Robert S.

ArtServe’s Annual Members and Resident Artists’ Exhibit Springboards Aspiring Talent

“Sole Perception” to Run Friday, Oct. 6 Through Saturday, Dec. 30;
Free, Opening Night Reception Oct. 6

Marking a successful year featuring all kinds of artists from South Florida and beyond, ArtServe turns its final exhibit of 2023 exclusively over to its members and resident artists with a focus on the inherent interconnectivity of their individual creativity.

Titled “Sole Perception,” the exhibit opens with a free, public reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 6. To RSVP for the event, click here. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sole-perception-annual-members-exhibition-tickets-696121446987?aff=oddtdtcreator

Thanks to a grant from Broward Cultural Division and Florida Arts & Culture, the exhibit itself is also free to attend and runs through Saturday, December 30, 2023. ArtServe is located at 1350 E. Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale and open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

ArtServe’s members and resident artists eagerly await this annual exhibit, which is known in South Florida’s art community as a place to connect with art scouts looking for up-and-coming talent. Some ArtServe artists go on to exhibit their work at Art Basel after being discovered.

Echoing ArtServe’s fundamental mission to connect local artists with the community, “Sole Perception” will invite visitors to contemplate how artists’ reinterpretations of others’ ideas create an endless stream of consciousness to connect the viewer with the original artistic inspiration.

“It was Mark Twain who said ‘There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible.’” ArtServe Executive Director Jason Hughes remarked. “But we’re pretty sure when you see our artists’ works at ‘Sole Perception,’ you’ll likely get some fresh ideas of your own!”

“Sole Perception” will showcase a variety of disciplines in the visual arts.

“It’s also an opportunity for guests to support local artists by purchasing their work and, with the holidays right around the corner, we can’t think of a better, more unique present than the gift of art,” Hughes added.

ArtServe inspires, supports and advances its diverse members, artists and community by promoting artistic development, education and prosperity through the exploration and presentation of the visual and performing arts.

On U.S. Veterans’ Administration 93rd Anniversary, ArtServe Art Exhibit
Explores Challenges of Life After Military Service

Friday, July 21 Opening Reception Coincides with VA’s 93rd Anniversary;
Monday, September 11 Closing Day Pays Tribute to First Responder Veterans

Ninety-three years ago on July 21, 1930, the creation of the U.S. Department of Veterans Administration forever changed how Americans cared for our veterans after their active service was completed.

To celebrate that commitment, ArtServe is opening a new exhibit coinciding with the Veterans Administration’s 93rd anniversary called “Veterans: A Family Perspective.”

The exhibit officially opens with a free, public reception on Friday, July 21, 2023 at ArtServe from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ArtServe is located at 1350 E. Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

It concludes on Monday, September 11 in tribute to first responders and other veterans of America’s worst terrorist attack.

Artist participation in the “Veterans” exhibit is open to all, including veterans, active-duty service persons and military family members, whose artwork depicting the challenges of life after military service will be showcased.

“As the fanfare of July 4 sunsets each year, supporting our veterans remains a substantial daily need,” ArtServe Executive Director Jason Hughes explained, noting that this imperative was underscored by the June 9, 2023 presidential executive order on “Advancing Economic Security for Military and Veteran Spouses, Military Caregivers, and Survivors.” “So much of the heartache and difficulty of reintegrating veterans into civilian life is borne by their loved ones. The untold story of these families’ courage will be on display at ArtServe.”

Sponsored by Florida Power & Light, Primo Liquors, United Way of Broward County’s Mission United, OutClique magazine and the USS Fort Lauderdale (LPD 28) Commissioning & Support Committee, “Veterans: A Family Perspective” opens to the public on Friday, July 14.

Solo exhibits by Marilyn Johansen and Tony Khawam will also be on display.

ArtServe hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

Thanks to a grant from Broward Cultural Division and Culture Builds Florida, admission to both the July 21 reception and the ongoing exhibit are free.

ArtServe inspires, supports and advances its diverse members, artists and community by promoting artistic development, education and prosperity through the exploration and presentation of the visual and performing arts.

Ninety-three years ago on July 21, 1930, the creation of the U.S. Department of Veterans Administration forever changed how Americans cared for our veterans after their active service was completed.

To celebrate that commitment, ArtServe is opening a new exhibit coinciding with the Veterans Administration’s 93rd anniversary called “Veterans: A Family Perspective.”

The exhibit officially opens with a free, public reception on Friday, July 21, 2023 at ArtServe from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ArtServe is located at 1350 E. Sunrise Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

It concludes on Monday, September 11 in tribute to first responders and other veterans of America’s worst terrorist attack.

Artist participation in the “Veterans” exhibit is open to all, including veterans, active-duty service persons and military family members, whose artwork depicting the challenges of life after military service will be showcased.

“As the fanfare of July 4 sunsets each year, supporting our veterans remains a substantial daily need,” ArtServe Executive Director Jason Hughes explained, noting that this imperative was underscored by the June 9, 2023 presidential executive order on “Advancing Economic Security for Military and Veteran Spouses, Military Caregivers, and Survivors.” “So much of the heartache and difficulty of reintegrating veterans into civilian life is borne by their loved ones. The untold story of these families’ courage will be on display at ArtServe.”

Sponsored by Florida Power & Light, Primo Liquors, United Way of Broward County’s Mission United, OutClique magazine and the USS Fort Lauderdale (LPD 28) Commissioning & Support Committee, “Veterans: A Family Perspective” opens to the public on Friday, July 14.

Solo exhibits by Marilyn Johansen and Tony Khawam will also be on display.

ArtServe hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

Thanks to a grant from Broward Cultural Division and Culture Builds Florida, admission to both the July 21 reception and the ongoing exhibit are free.

ArtServe inspires, supports and advances its diverse members, artists and community by promoting artistic development, education and prosperity through the exploration and presentation of the visual and performing arts.

Tim Forman is the third generation of Formans to have been born and reared in South Florida. He first picked up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen.

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.

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.

ArtServe curated the “Wellness” exhibit from local artists’ submissions. Entries also were welcomed from both adults and students in the eighth grade through college.

“It’s long been known in medical circles that art is a highly effective form of therapy that encourages non-verbal communication and healing when people are often unable to speak for whatever the reason,” ArtServe executive director Jason Hughes said. “Exploring self-expression through the outlet of various artforms can create a safe space that helps many embrace and sort through their own personal difficulties.”

According to the American Art Therapy Association, there are over 5,000 art therapists practicing nationwide who provide services for individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative processes, applied psychological theory and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.

A solo exhibit entitled “Story of a Woman’s Journey” produced by Deborah Strelkow will run concurrently to the “Wellness” exhibit at ArtServe.

In a time where few want to think about germs, much less consider their inherent beauty, molecular biologist Dr. Sara Schesser Bartra is on a mission to re-introduce all types of microscopic beings to people through her art, but in a much less contagious way.

Currently running at ArtServe in its Bienes Gallery through December 30, her solo exhibit entitled “Microbes: The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful” depicts an artistic interpretation of the many types of micro-organisms Dr. Schesser Bartra has seen and learned about during her career as a scientist at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.

“My work does not pretend to illustrate the natural world, but rather shows a representation of it to instigate curiosity about it in the eyes of the audience,” Dr. Schesser Bartra explained.

“The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful” uses multimedia to represent everything from beneficial bacteria to diverse pathogens, all of which display a complex visual diversity in their unseen abundance.

“Dr. Schesser Bartra’s work has a highly personal approach and perspective that creates a visual relationship with the mysterious microbial world and a better awareness and understanding of science in general,” ArtServe Executive Director Jason Hughes said.

Dr. Schesser Bartra, who is originally from Sweden, also founded and leads an art group of Swedish women living in South Florida.

“The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful” is on display concurrently with ArtServe’s “Narratives in Latin American Art” exhibit, which also runs through Dec. 30.

ArtServe inspires, supports and advances its diverse members, artists and community by promoting artistic development, education and prosperity through the exploration and presentation of the visual and performing arts.

For more information, visit www.artserve.org. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Admission is always free.

State of the Art is the first large scale hybrid installation by ThankYouX— this project reimagines the use of blockchain technology as a medium rather than a tool for distribution.
State of the Art consists of four paintings broken into 400 equal tiles— creating 1600 unique paired physical and digital artworks. Upon launch, participants will all be randomly assigned a singular digital tile corresponding with a section of one of the four paintings. Eventually, collectors will be able to claim the identical physical artwork. Before the physical claim, users will have the ability to work directly with the secondary market to purchase additional, adjacent, and connecting tiles to merge, and eventually claim, a larger section of the canvas.

Each painting distinctively expresses ThankYouX’s own representation and exploration of digital information migrating through the internet, blockchain and cyberspace

Johannesburg artist William Kentridge’s performance piece Ursonate, will be on view at NSU Art Museum, with screenings during museum hours, every hour on the half hour, 11:30 am to 3:30 pm. Based on dada artist Kurt Schwitters 1932 sound poem Ursonate, consisting entirely of a nonsense, invented language, Kentridge’s work is comprised of two film projections: one in which the artist emphatically gesticulates as he sounds the score accompanied by an opera singer and percussionist, while a constant flow of animated caligraphic images drawn by Kentridge are projected on the second screen. This exhibition coincides with the performance of Kentridge’s opera The Head & The Load at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Miami (December 1-3, 2022).

One of the artist who shaped the graffiti art movement we know and love today is Steven D. Ogburn (b. 1957), better known as Blade, a famed New York-born artist and a proud owner of the title King of the Trains since he painted over five thousand trains with his striking characters and elegant letters. Famous for his whole subway cars, he became an icon of New York City and a hero-figure for the younger generation of street artists. Blade stopped painting trains in 1984 as he felt that he had nothing more to prove. Additionally, he began working in other media including acrylic on canvas, producing artworks suitable for indoor exhibitions that have brought him worldwide recognition. Since 1981 when he had his first one-man exhibition in Europe, Blade has participated in many individual and collective shows in notable venues, such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Cleveland; the Musée national des Monuments Français, Paris; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles; the Groninger Museum in the city of Groningen in the Netherlands, and many others.

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.

“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.
