A Bold Adventure in the Arts

ArtServe, South Florida’s historic arts incubator and innovative creative laboratory, invites the community to experience its upcoming exhibitions and initiatives celebrating its 30th Anniversary Season.

The immersive, multi-disciplinary artistic season includes vibrant, thought-provoking and enriching explorations of culture, spirituality, identity and environment in an ever- fragile world.

“Under the artistic direction of Sophie Bonet, this momentous season was born from a series of listening sessions with artists, collaborations with South Florida curators and dialogues with community leaders in areas ranging from arts advocacy to social service,” said ArtServe Executive Director Craig W. Johnson. “Embracing experimentation and collaboration, we’re excited to share what will emerge from our creative laboratory in 2020.”

Across the upcoming year, audiences will enjoy drumming and dance associated with the African Diaspora “Roots of the Spirit” exhibition, spoken word performances during

The Women’s History Month exhibit, interactive video projections during the environmentally-conscious “Changing Landscapes” installation, “Emerging Art from War-Torn Syria” and more.

Most exhibitions throughout the 30th Anniversary Season Preview include

both a VIP and community reception, with VIP receptions allowing the organization to honor Broward County Arts & Culture Visionaries for their contributions to the region’s arts and culture landscape.

Tickets to VIP receptions are $75 each and include gourmet bites and drinks, mingling with cultural leaders, a gallery display by local visual artists and performances by featured artists of all genres. All proceeds and gifts support ArtServe’s artistic, educational and public service goals.

Tickets to family-friendly community receptions are $20 each and include pizza, arts activities for kids and a one- of-a-kind performance; admission is free for children 12 and under.
