Art for Your Sake

The clothes you wear, the type of rebellion you engage in, what you choose to furnish your house with, all represent ways in which you express yourself. Ways in which you yourself are a piece of art. In turn, everything you do works — or hopefully should work — on a creative level. Art is, after all, a natural form of communication. We all want to leave our mark, say something about something, even if the moment is fleeting.

That is the philosophy behind “Celebration of Creation — Earth Is an Installation.” As show coordinator Liza Lichtinger, who will also showcase some work, puts it, “We want to allow people to express themselves in any way they know how.” In other words, leave them unedited and unhindered by theme, medium, and, well, anything. Works will include paintings by Fort Lauderdale pop surrealist Erick Arenas, sculptures and installations by Time/Peace, henna by Arti, and media productions by Omega Boy. Local bands Dooms de Pop, Trav, Ctrl+alt+dlt, and Ketchy Shuby will perform.

Celebration of Creation starts at 6 p.m. Saturday at DIY art space the Bubble, located at 810 NE Fourth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Admission is $5 and up. Call 954-562-3804, or visit independentworkingartistnetwork.com.
