Putting the Art Back in Heart Since 2009

The French will argue l’art pour l’art. Art for art’s sake. Aestheticism has its place, but most art has a story, involves symbolism, or serves some larger purpose. Serving a larger purpose is the mission behind Art/Heart. Formed about a year ago, Art/Heart plans to put on art shows that will both expose local artists to the public and raise money for different charities. A portion of the proceed’s from this month’s event on Saturday will go to His House Children’s Home. More than 30 artists will have their work featured, with some artists on hand to make their creations live. There will also be several musical acts performing, including local indie band What Glorious Things and DJ AnaMated, from the Global Village. The show will run from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Pompano Citi Centre, 1955 N. Federal Highway, Ste. 104, in Pompano Beach. Admission is $5. Visit artheartreachinreachout.org.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
