A Charitable ArtHeart

True to its name, ArtHeart is an art and music event that beats a pulse. More than mere art parties, ArtHeart events seek to promote undiscovered artists while simultaneously raising money for charity. This year's ArtHeart aims to raise more than $18,000 for the ZOE Ministry, a relief ministry based in war-torn Rwanda, Africa, that provides Rwandan orphans with shelter, life skills, and education. It consists of two events this year -- a skate competition at indoor skate park Ramp 48 and a night of revelry at the Green Room. There will be live collaborative work done, installations, and more than 28 artists with work on display -- featuring Rwandan artist Bashimbe Bantuzeko Bezo and pro skater Steve Caballero. Both events take place on Saturday. The skate competition begins at 12:30 p.m. at Ramp 48, located at 6290 NW 27th Way in Fort Lauderdale, with a $5 admission. The afterparty starts at 10 p.m. at the Green Room, located at 109 SW Second Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Admission is also $5. Visit artheartreachinreachout.org, or call 954-449-1030.
