Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Within minutes of walking into Respectable Street last night, a red envelope was placed in our hands with no explanation. The mysterious exchange became less so when we recognized the bestower of the traditional Chinese good-luck gift as none other than Art Nouveau creator and curator of events Teresa Korber

In our experience covering Art Nouveau's numerous shows, we've found them to be well-attended, whimsical, and filled with local artists who are working the grind. Most of them have day jobs while they make an honest attempt at living the artist's dream. After all, creating money is still creating. Creating money from what you love could be defined as success.

Last night's event was no different from the others we've attended. The focus on good fortune for artists and attendees was expressed via the Chinese New Year theme.

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 would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
