Star Search

We here at New Times are what you’d call city folk: We don’t like roughing it, we rarely wrassle pigs (tell that to my wife, bada bing!), and we couldn’t spot a constellation if it had a neon sign glowing next to it. Yup, we prefer to do our contemplative star gazing in sanctioned places, like the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood (1650 Harrison St., Hollywood). In their “Focus South Florida” project room, the ACC houses indigenous wildlife of the artistic variety; now through May 11, lightbox artist Jay Oré will call the room home. Oré’s a Floridian who’s not intimidated by the night sky – his lightboxes act as expansive constellations, each interacting to tell a vibrant story. Like most good art, you might have to work a bit to discover the underlying messages. But don’t worry: it’s more fun than trying to figure out Orion’s Belt. Admission costs $6. Call 954-921-3274, or visit www.artandculturecenter.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.
