Join Us for a Fantasy-Filled Exhibition of Art and Sailing During the Annual Street Art Regatta in Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale, FL. The Fort Lauderdale Intracoastal Waterway is set to come alive on April 7, 2023, with the Street Art Regatta, or StAR, a celebration of original artworks by local and national artists painted on sail canvas and presented by the award-winning youth sailing team of the Lauderdale Yacht Club Sailing Foundation.
This free interactive art installation viewed by the docks of the beautiful Lauderdale Yacht Club (LYC), mimics a water ballet with fantastical sea creatures, promising a visually-stunning experience for everyone who attends. Those who can’t make it can join online via social media on Facebook and YouTube.
“We are proud to partner with Grace Arts as we showcase the skills of our young sailors along with such spectacular art pieces,” said Connie Commette, a Lauderdale Yacht Club Sailing Foundation volunteer.”
‘The StAR event is sure to delight art and sailing enthusiasts alike, bringing together the beauty of both worlds in a unique and exciting way,’ said Clare Vickery of Grace Arts Florida, Curator and Presenter of StAR.
StAR combines the athleticism of sailing with the vibrant culture of street art. Spectators on the docks overlooking the historic Pier 66 can gaze at the brightly colored images which mesmerized audiences through freestyle spins and twirls, showcasing the beauty of Fort Lauderdale’s coastal community known as the ‘Venice of America.’ Each year more art and sailing enthusiasts marvel at the stunning fusion of the sport of sailing and artistic expression.
