Get Your Art On

There's no way you can forget about Fort Lauderdale's burgeoning arts community thanks to events such as the fifth-annual Art Fallout, hosted by Girls' Club. Dedicated to supporting the efforts of local artists, Girls' Club continues to assemble this festival in honor of National Arts and Humanities Month. Boasting a captivating evening filled with interactive exhibitions, special presentations, pop-up galleries, shops, and open studios, Art Fallout will combine the forces of Girls' Club Collection (117 NE Second St.), the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale (1 E. Las Olas Blvd.), 1310 Gallery and Young at Art's Bedlam Lorenz Assembly (1310 SW Second Court, Suite 309), FAT Village (17 NW Fifth St.), Glavovic Studio (724 NE Third Ave.), Cadence Pop-Up Gallery (435 N. Andrews Ave., Suite 2), MAC Fine Art (833 NE Fourth Ave.), and Made in Broward at the Cottage (500 NE First Ave.). Whether you're interested in art education, mere observation and appreciation, or taking advantage of what each venue has to offer, we can guarantee no one will leave unfazed by this celebration of the arts. Printed fliers announcing the event, featuring work by artist Carolyn Swiszczare, are being distributed across Broward and Miami-Dade counties. A map of all Art Fallout sites will be included. Within just five years, this event has proved to be a tremendous success, garnering the attention of hundreds of people each year. With the addition of a variety of new venues this year, Art Fallout is expected to surpass its predecessors. Get a hefty dose of arts and culture on Saturday at each participating venue in Fort Lauderdale. All venues will be open, with free admission from 5 to 9 p.m. Nova Southeastern University Shark Shuttle will provide free shuttle service among venues from 5 to 10 p.m. Food trucks, vendors, or cafés are available at each venue.
