Art Fallout: Unframed at Girls’ Club
Over 100 works on paper from artists across South Florida will be exhibited as part of the interactive exhibit Art Fallout: Unframed.
A panel of prominent South Florida arts professionals – including collectors, arts writers, gallery owners, independent curators, museum professionals – will informally judge the works and make comments on Purple stick notes. 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 sticky notes with comments, feedback, constructive criticism and sometimes contact info from interested curators/collectors.
Join us! Unleash your inner art critic, get on your favorite new artists email list or have fun reading other’s notes!
Radio Active Records Pop Up Gallery
Upstairs in the mezzanine, Radio-Active Records presents a pop-up gallery and sound system with DJ Mike Ramirez. Founded in 2001, Radio-Active Records has been specializing in new and used independent vinyl, cds, turntables, accessories as well as operating as an special event venue in downtown Fort Lauderdale for over a decade.
Natalie Smallish of Radio-Active Records has organized Chicks with Discs, an audio and visual exhibition of vintage, rare and beloved vinyl records from local female record collectors. No longer are the labyrinth-ed halls and stacked racks of record stores the domain solely of the ‘high fidelity’ stereotype of the obsessive male. The aisles at Radio-Active, and the block-long lines for special events, have been increasingly gender balanced, with female collectors not only holding their own, but amassing an evermore eclectic mix of vinyl. The diverse showcase includes LPs by Black Sabbath, Joy Division, the Killers, Grover Washington Jr., Dolly Parton and Bob Dylan.
Hydrate and fuel up with some some social lubricants courtesy of Gramps Bar, and help convince them to open up a Fort Lauderdale outpost. Seize the night with drinks courtesy of Desperados.
Super Duper Grub
Chow down with Super Duper Grub food truck and find some kid-friendly, healthy options just outside Girls’ Club, serving a menu which includes healthy and tasty snacks for all ages.
