Message from the Pompano CRA:
On Wednesday, August 15th, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, our fourth Artist Reception introduces the community to its talented young artists. Accompany the youth of Pompano Beach on their journey of self-discovery through artistic expression. They share their visions of themselves and their world using a myriad of art forms such as portraiture; collage; acrylics, photography and mixed media. From Blanche Ely HS, Pompano Beach HS, the art classes of Simone Spade, the Awaken Program at Taylor’s Closet, the McNair Community Center Summer Art Program (provided by Changing Directions 4 Youth and Families, Inc.) these young people, ages 5-20, offer us their interpretation of the sights, sounds and feelings of their daily experiences. Music accompaniment will feature local Action DJ Frankie, and members of the Mitchell/Moore Vivace Heritage Youth Orchestra. Join us for an amazing glimpse of the talent growing right in our backyard!
The Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) is excited to introduce ArtHall, the newest, coolest space for art exhibition in Pompano Beach. ArtHall creatively combines art and business in a beautifully renovated space called the CRA Business Resource Center found in Historic Downtown Pompano Beach. In a series of six Artist Receptions, an artist or group of artists, and their work, will be presented to the community starting in May 2012 and running through October 2012. Community participation is welcome at each Artist Reception and the public is encouraged to come to the Business Resource Center, located at 50 NE 1st Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060 during business hours Monday through Friday, to enjoy the artwork for the duration of each exhibit.
I look forward to seeing you there.
