They Had a Dream!

Art is born in one’s imagination — you dream something up, and then you make it happen. Artists and teachers Jean Minuchin and Randy Hendler dreamed of a space where they could not only display their own creations but where people could come together to express themselves and experience art in all its forms. So they did what artists do: They made their dream real. The World and Eye Arts Center is a gallery with the goal of exploring social issues and expanding people’s minds. There will be classes and workshops, coffeehouse nights for discussions, and changing art displays exploring themes like culture and identity. It’s like the mecca of all things art, and its opening reception is Saturday from 6 to 11 p.m. as part of the FAT Village Art Walk. There will be live music, food, and a sampling of the art that will be featured at the gallery. The reception is free. Call 954-540-9897, or visit

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.
