Art Fallout: Thinking on Paper
All south Florida artists are invited to submit work on paper as part of a one-day, open call exhibition Art Fallout: Thinking on Paper. A panel of prominent South Florida arts professionals will informally judge the works in the exhibition on their merits. The public is also invited to give personal feedback to the artists via a system of color-coded handwritten messages. Artists go home with a stack of colorful Post-Its with comments, feedback, constructive criticism and sometimes contact info from interested curators/collectors. This unique system is a fun way to connect artists with art enthusiasts, curators and gallery owners.
Bite Gastrotuck will be just outside, seving a menu which includes one of Americas top 100 burgers with a large arrange of toppings, crafted milkshakes, hand cut fries and onion rings.
Light refreshments inside provided by Fresh Market.
