Art Fallout 2011 a big hit – thanks to all our artists, judges and backers
The numbers of artists participating plus the dedicated art fans that turned out to write their comments on post-it notes proves that there is a thriving scene for contemporary art in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Art Fallout is organized in tandem with National Arts and Humanities Month. We’re really pleased that so many people appreciate what the arts and culture contribute to our lives.
Photos from the evening can be found on the Girls’ Club Facebook page.
There is no way we could have installed 122 works by more than 85 artists without some series help! Girls’ Club extends our deepest appreciation to Alexandra Snowden, Phillip Karp, Nicole Kent and Teodora Dakova for their intelligence and efficiency – we’re thrilled to have them aboard!
Thank you to all our Kickstarter Backers! With your help we were able to raise over $1,000 to support Girls’ Club outreach and educational programs!
We’d also like to thank our Art Fallout judge and participating artists for their help in opening up the dialogue about contemporary art!
