Art and Culture Center of Hollywood Has an Exciting Summer Planned

Miami's large tree has long overshadowed other artistic enterprises in South Florida. But if the tree image is to be pursued, then it is safe to assume the tree has entered the fall season and the leaves have begun to fall.

With the flagship Art Basel now known more for its parties than its art, Broward County institutions have piggybacked during the fair, with increasingly successful results. The new light cast unto other zones is not hitting new ground, but it is at least letting some rightful entities enjoy the splendor of the sun.

This, of course, would be pointless if there weren't a year-round follow-up to establish a strong local and international profile. The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, now in its 40th year, has long been at the forefront of Broward's art scene with its promotion of contemporary arts and programs. Housed at the Kagey mansion since 1991, it was designated a Major Cultural Institution for Broward County in 2005.

The center's recent exhibition "Echos Myron" was a deft and incredibly savvy maneuver, showcasing the administration's sharp eye for local trends and the overall creative scope of art in South Florida.
