Host Cathleen Dean Invites Art Lovers to Explore ‘Reinterpreting the Pioneer’ an Outsider Art Exhibit & Much More at Fort Lauderdale History Museum
For Immediate Release
An exciting and very non-traditional art exhibition is underway at the Fort Lauderdale History Museum. ‘Reinterpreting the Pioneer through Outsider Art’ — explores distinctive culture through the lens of noted self taught artists and creatives making art outside of conventional society. The three month exhibit runs through March 2017, featuring artists, leaders from academia and the community in conversations discussing art, architecture, design and discovering the beauty of the vernacular in South Florida.
During the opening reception in December, Florida Film Producer and Video Host Cathleen Dean, spoke with some of the key artists and advocates of the genre.
Among the upcoming events is a wine and cheese reception in January — ‘Outsiders In’ — with Florida Storyteller Dr. Caren Neile followed by a panel discussion with Pedro Pablo Pena, International Ballet Festival of Miami Founder & ArtisticDirector, and members of the Miami Dade Hispanic Cultural Arts Center with Dr. Paul George of History Miami. February panels include conversations about ‘Diversity in Design’ featuring among other Architects and Designers, David Rifkind, and a pop up exhibit of the famed Florida Highwaymen, second and first generation artists Kelvin Hair and Mary Ann Carroll respectively, with a presentation by Author, Gary Monroe (a graduate of art school studies and long time advocate for Florida Self Taught Artists ). The exhibit and fair events were developed by Clare Vickery of Grace Arts Florida and features selected exclusive collections from Lisa Stone of Lisa Stone Arts.
Funding for this organization and project provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council.
