Art is meant to be communication. And a lot of times, artists get away with being obscure and weird by simply claiming that you, the receiver of the art, are simply not appreciating it. Maybe, if given the chance, artists would like to shed more light on their art.
This, in part, seems to be the inspiration behind the latest FAT Village Art Walk called Self Lit. Spread between 18 Rabbit Gallery and the Projects alternative art space, each piece on display must include its own light source, whether that means the artist merely provides the lighting or light is the medium itself.
The free art walk is from 7 to 10 p.m. and located along NW First Avenue between Fifth Street and Sistrunk Boulevard. For more information, contact 18 Rabbit Gallery (17 NW Fifth St., Fort Lauderdale) by emailing [email protected], calling 954-826-3113, or visiting 18rabbitgallery.com where you will also find a useful map of FAT Village.
