This is a Canvas

2014 - 2016

This is a Canvas began in the winter of 2014 as a collaboration between Broward College and Florida Atlantic University. It is a juried public street art exhibition meant to bring more of this vibrant new medium to downtown Fort Lauderdale and give artists a new way to share their work with the public. With installing their work in plain view of the public, visitors can see the pieces unfold in front of them and interact with the artists to learn about their process and the work’s intended meaning. After a few months, new artists are chosen and cover up the previous works.
