Coffee and Sculptures

The Undergrounds Coffeehaus is a rare local alternative to Starbucks and its soul-sucking corporate vibe. The gemütlich little haunt sports a jam station and piles of used books and board games. And on Saturday, it will be overrun by an immobile crowd of plaster-casted relief sculptures created by Hilda Vazquez, a Fort Lauderdale-born artist who’s been exhibiting locally for 14 years. “Captives: the Bodies” is inspired by Michelangelo’s unfinished sculptures of slaves — muscle-bound men trapped in uncut blocks of stone.

This one-night-only event is the coffeehouse’s last art show before it relocates. There will be snacks, drinks, a raffle, movies, and blues music. “Captives: the Bodies” is from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at Undergrounds Coffeehaus (2743 E. Oakland Park Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Admission is free. Check out the shop’s Facebook, or call 954-630-1900.
