May 30 – Niki Lopez: What is your Elephant?
Pompano Beach Cultural Center

The March film is Caressed from Niki Lopez, whose artwork was featured last year at an exhibition at Ali. This program will take place at the Cultural Center.

“This short film 'Caressed' is an art film and a self-portrait, mixed-media video installation combining performance art and a poem I wrote about a traumatic childhood memory,” explained Lopez, who was featured in People magazine regarding her growing up in a cult and the ensuring abuse. “This intimate piece is a part of series with my personal artwork within the art movement: What’s Your Elephant – Creative Conversations about the Unknown.”

The intentions behind Lopez’ work is to not only share a personal elephant but to have discussions surrounding unspoken topics such as abuse, survivors of abuse, awareness, the power of a ‘share’ and how the arts can be used to heal, to empower and to educate. This session will consist of a video screening, performance and artist lead discussion based on the mission of “What’s Your Elephant.”

31 st
Tamiami Trail Exhibition 10:00am - 6:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) presents Tamiami Trail: In the Beginning, an exhibition of original artworks by members of the Miami-based Tropical Botanic Artists collective. The exhibit will be on view in the West Gallery/Blooming Bean Coffee Roasters from April 5, 2019 through May 31, 2019. The free opening reception is Friday, April 5, 6pm-10pm during Old Town Untapped.

The botanical subjects were selected to mark the 100th anniversary in 2015 of the start of work on Tamiami Trail, a roadway begun in 1915 in Miami. Today it stretches across the Everglades from Miami to Naples and northward to Tampa, through areas that were largely wilderness a century ago. The exhibition’s more than 30 plant portraits depict species found then and now in multiple vegetation zones along the route. Due to human intervention and changes in water flow, some of the plants illustrated are rare or endangered, and their predominant locations may have shifted, but all persist in South Florida’s landscape.

“We invite our community to dive deep into the discerning talents of the artists capturing the essence of South Florida in plant form," said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “Far beyond ‘flower painting,’ botanical artists show the fascinating and soul-stirring intersection of science and art.”

Presented with support from the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the exhibition is the result of the artists’ collaboration with Dr. Evelyn Gaiser of Florida International University, who is principal investigator for the local Florida Coastal Everglades Long Term Ecological Research program.

Artists whose works are featured in the exhibition are Margie Bauer, Kristi Bettendorf, Beverly Borland, Silvia Bota, Marie Chaney, Susan Cumins, Jeanie Daniel Duck, Julio Figueroa, Pauline A Goldsmith, Leo Hernandez, Elsa Nadal, Carol Onstad, Laurie Richardson, Donna Torres and Jedda Wong.
