Downtown Fort Lauderdale Becomes One Giant Art Gallery

Art lovers, get ready to prance around downtown Fort Lauderdale via free trolley buses. Art Fallout's back, and for its second year -- for "Art Fallout: Unframed" -- it's gotten bigger.

Park for free at FAT Village, located at NW First Avenue between NE Fifth and Sixth streets, or across from Girls' Club at NE Second Avenue. You won't need that hot rod from 5 to 9 p.m.

Here's a list of what's to offer:

-- Your art hostess is Girl's Club (117 NE Second St.; girlsclubcollection.org), which will be decked out with a paper exhibition.

-- 1310 Gallery at Sailboat Bend Artists Lofts (1310 SW Second Court; sailboatbendartists.com): "Humoratorium: The Art of Whimsy" is an exhibit with playful art -- paintings, installations, animations -- meant to amuse. It has a five-foot-tall hamburger.

-- Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale (1 Las Olas Blvd.; moafl.org): "All in the Family: Paintings and Works on Paper" is an exhibit that showcases not only American painter William Glackens but art from his extended family as well. Kinship will be in the air.

-- FAT Village (NW First Avenue between NW Fifth and Sixth streets; fatvillagearts.com): We've all gotten pretty comfortable with FAT Village, right? It's been offering multivenue art walks in its little city of art for some time now. If not, here's your chance to check out 18 Rabbit, Puppet Network Studio, Rolling Stock Gallery, and World & Eye Arts Center, among quite a few others.

-- Full Circle Gallery (201 SW Fifth St.; stevensylvester.net); "The Ladies' Dress Series" is an exhibit by artist Steven Sylvester that features dresses in all shapes and sizes: Think life-sized dresses down to brooches.

-- Legacy Art Studio (207 SW Fifth St.; sculptureworkshopclasses.com): Sculptures! Instructor and artist Nilda Comas will have her bronze, terra cotta, and marble pieces on display.
