In A Pickle

No one likes to get caught in a pickle, but there's nothing sour about this happening. Since 2003, the Independent Working Artists Network (IWAN) has set out to find unknown local talent and introduce it to consumers and industry professionals. A dating service of some sort between local art aficionados and local artists, IWAN brings good art to the community while realizing the artist's dream (like having enough money to buy groceries). Their newer, 4-year-old production facility, the Bubble, boasts 3,000 square feet of stages, gallery, and rehearsal space to inspire innovation and creation. To help raise funds for the Bubble, IWAN is selling donated art (anything from canvas art to photography to vintage clothing) in a $25 sale. There will also be live music and food for you while you peruse the grounds. The Bubble is located at 810 NE Fourth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. The event will be held 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $10. Visit their Facebook page or, or email [email protected]

Jess Swanson is a staff writer at New Times. Born and raised in Miami, she graduated from the University of Miami’s School of Communication and wrote briefly for the student newspaper until realizing her true calling: pissing off fraternity brothers by reporting about their parties on her crime blog. Especially gifted in jumping rope and solving Rubik’s cubes, she also holds the title for longest stint as an unpaid intern in New Times history. She left the Magic City for New York to earn her master’s degree from Columbia University School of Journalism, where she spent a year profiling circumcised men who were trying to regrow their foreskins for a story that ultimately won the John Horgan Award for Critical Science Journalism. Terrified by pizza rats and arctic temperatures, she quickly returned to her natural habitat.
