Donations Welcomed To Support Art Fort Lauderdale's Initiatives
Art Fort Lauderdale started as a passion project by 2 altruistic Fort Lauderdale residents who felt their community deserved to have a major 4 day art fair. They didn't want to create just another art fair held in a tent or convention center, they wanted to highlight the unique characteristics that make Fort Lauderdale great. They wanted to create an experience that has never existed before, allowing art appreciators and collectors to view art work in a setting where it ultimately lives - in a home. While the community has embraced the concept, monetary support has not come in abundance, as the founders had to initially self fund the art fair the first year to get it off the ground. If you share our vision for a more culturally diverse Fort Lauderdale, we welcome and appreciate your support in any capacity. Please don't hesitate to reach out and discuss further!

Organizer

Art Fort Lauderdale

ART FORT LAUDERDALE is a 4-day curated art fair that transports attendees on a journey along the famed Intracoastal waterways via water taxi and private yacht with stops at vacant multimillion dollar waterfront properties that feature emerging artists exhibiting various styles and methods of art that reflect the past, the present and the future.. This destination art fair seeks to highlight the uniqueness of the city and put Fort Lauderdale on the art world map as a premiere location to view, interact with and purchase art along with giving art aficionados, residents and visitors a cultural experience that is memorable, interactive and engaging.

This has lead to the creation of Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week (January 19-27, 2019) which was a result of the desire to unite all of Fort Lauderdale's artists and arts & cultural institutions in an effort to highlight all that the city has to offer through an annual self-guided tour and celebration of everything art and culture throughout the Greater Fort Lauderdale area with the ultimate goal of establishing Fort Lauderdale as an international cultural destination.
