In December, the Fort Lauderdale History Museum kicked off a three month exhibition, ‘Reinterpreting the Pioneer through Outsider Art’ — exploring distinctive culture through the lens of noted self taught artists and creatives making art outside of conventional society. Through March 2017, leaders from academia join the community in conversations discussing art, architecture, design and discovering the beauty of the vernacular in South Florida. Below is the complete schedule of events. We invite you to join us. Be a part of the conversation and enjoy the art!

Check out the 2016 Artists in Core Exhibition.

African American cultural ideas are readily expressed in various art forms, however, in the creative fields of Design and Architecture, these contributions are becoming more pronounced. African voices in America are gaining international attention especially with the opening of the monumental Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. Join design professionals — architects, interior designers and spatial artists — to discuss impacts and cultural influences of the ‘vernacular’ and shifting cultural paradigms affecting design and architecture.
