Public art transforms Hollywood into arts hub Keeping in theme with Society Scene’s philanthropic coverage, local artist Jadria Wenstrom – who donates 10 percent of sales from her artwork to a different charity each month – made this piece for our 2013 Arts Issue. She works at Gallery 928 on the edge of Victoria Park. Wenstrom uses paint, charcoal and pencil, but created the piece, at left, with only Sharpie, proving art can be made with anything.

Editor's note

A

museum curator is responsible for editing a collection suited for its patrons - whether it is pieces of accessible beauty or works that elicit emotion. And as individuals we, too, are given the option of what to seek in life. In essence, we are our own curators. Through this issue, the Society Scene team shares our view of the current arts scene in Broward County where photographer Kara Starzyk has been busy documenting a variety of artwork, artists and their establishments. Page 10 features Scene & Be Seen coverage from the “Ship Shape” event that gathered volunteers to repurpose trash containers into works of art that will greet travelers coming and going from Port Everglades. In keeping with the local public arts scene, page 12 shares information about Fort Lauderdale’s “Play Your City.” The project provides the community the opportunity to publicly create music on colorfully-painted pianos. Creating art can sometimes be a beautiful mess, and Independent Working Artist Network provides a hub for such creations (of both music and visual art) at its appropriately named studio, The Bubble, in downtown Fort Lauderdale; Starzyk shares this story through a series of images on pages 14-15. Accumulating the county’s myriad arts events is a bold task that assistant editor Elissa Rosen conquered. She shares current events and exhibitions in the arts calendar on page 19. One of those events taking place the last Saturday this month is FAT Village’s art walk, produced in conjunction with the biannual “Revel on the Block” event that invites the community to explore their own creativity and that of local artists, with food trucks and demonstrations, featured on page 20. Numerous arts-related events and public murals are blossoming in downtown Hollywood, surrounding Hollywood’s Arts Park, where all ages can explore their inner artist. Rosen shares the countless

opportunities that make this one of Broward County’s newest and grandest hubs of cultural discovery. This summer, University of Florida student Brittany Bokzam, who’s interning with the team, has assisted Society Scene’s digital production. As a comic fan, she shares the local comic scene on pages 3031, which details the fan community of this alternative form of art. Inspired to explore my inner artist, I enrolled in a ceramics course (photographed at right, by Starzyk) with instructor Brett Thomas at AutoNation’s Academy of Art + Design in conjunction with the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale and Nova Southeastern University. I registered for a five-week course, which was so much fun, I extended it to the 10week session. After 10 weeks of working in clay, I still hadn’t had enough so I am currently halfway through my second 10-week session of classes. It’s opened me to a community of both beginning and advanced artists, where we can all get lost in our work. Making mistakes, learning from them and growing each class has taught me a lot about making art and also about life. I’m taking the hand-building course, but most of my classmates work on the pottery wheel. Collectively, we’ve made everything from platters to sculptures to bowls – lots of bowls. Thomas has helped us grow as artists – no matter our skill level, or lack of – in an atmosphere free of judgment surrounded by positive energy. My mundane candle holders have transformed into large, textured platters with the help of him gently challenging us to pursue our own greatness. This issue, like our cover photo taken in front of MOAFL’s colorful mural, gives you the tools to paint your own art scene. So go ahead, challenge yourself to curate a life of beauty right here in Broward County. Meredith Clements Society Scene Editor

Artists transform instruments into eye candy for the community

By Elissa Rosen

N

ot only is this art visual; it’s also playable. Three months ago, Play Your City, a new art program, popped up in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Five Salvation Army pianos were transformed into one-of-a-kind masterpieces and displayed at area hotspots. “Anything that is unexpected draws attention and gets people to interact,” said Rebecca Bradley, cofounder of Cadence, which organized the event. The pianos were covered in color and personality by artists Brian Buzzella, Luzalma Gonzalez and Richard Vergez, as well as students from the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale art school. The pianos then rotated between Cadence, Brew, MOAFL, City Hall, Riverhouse, Radioactive Records, Huizenga Park, Trading Post, Riverside Hotel, The Archives, and Museum of Discovery and Science. But this is no hands-off exhibition. The public is welcome to tickle the ivories. “It was most surprising that you don’t know how many know how to play a piano until there is one out for them to play,” Bradley said. After three months of traveling and public use, she said three of the five pianos are still in pretty good shape. Though, one experienced some sun and water damage, and the piano created by Vergez was stolen (pictured at left, by Joe Caveretta). But all and all, Bradley said Play Your City has been a great success. “The ongoing videos and pictures [the public] has shared through social media has been super cool,” she said. “We’ve got lots of messages and emails thanking us for doing it and people are super excited that something like this came to Fort Lauderdale.” The program will come to a close July 27 at “Revel on the Block” in FAT Village Arts District. The four remaining pianos will be on display at the biannual event. To take the place of the fifth piano that was stolen, Vergez will present an improvised and experimental performance based on pre-recorded tape of piano sounds, which will be amplified and further manipulated live through electronic means. The pianos will not stop playing after their appearance at “Revel on the Block.” The pianos that are still in good condition will go to yet-to-bedetermined permanent homes. Play Your City was made possible by Cadence – a full service urban design and landscape architecture firm focused on projects that reimagine the way South Floridians experience their outdoor living environments – the Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department and Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale.

After researching the blow dry popularity “and seeing there was a need here,” she and Carner quit their jobs and opened JustAir on Nov. 1, 2012. Now they have a hit of their own. JustAir is running a summer special through the month of August: a blow out for $30 ($5 off the regular price). The blow dry bar also offers monthly and VIP yearly memberships. Plus, “we do a lot of parties,” Gettler says. It’s a fun and unique way for girlfriends to celebrate a birthday, a baby shower, or just a casual get-together. Parties can be held at the blow dry bar, or a stylist can come to you. JustAir is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. It also accepts appointments beyond those hours. Book an appointment by calling (954) 999-5675, online at www.justair.me, or on www.facebook.com/ JustAirBlowDry. Or, simply walk in.

ad hair days happen. They can occur because of South Florida’s heat and humidity. They can happen by changing to a new hairstyle. They can result from improper washing. Or, they can happen for no reason at all. So, what do you do if you don’t want to hide inside your home all day, or wear a hat or scarf? Call JustAir. This blow dry bar in Fort Lauderdale specializes in straightening those unwanted curls or eliminating frizz. “Blow outs are all that we do,” says Brooke Gettler, who along with Nicole Carner owns JustAir at 1317 S.E. 17th Street, in the Southport Shopping Center. JustAir leaves the cuts and colors to others. It

uses blow dryers, styling products, curling irons and flat irons to achieve a fashionable look. In 40 minutes, hair is washed and blown out to the client’s style of choice by one of JustAir’s 15 accomplished stylists — all for only $35. You can choose from six different styles on the menu — with names like “Just Waves,” “Just Straight,” “Just Curls,” “Floating on Air,” “Up in the Air,” or “Fresh Air” — or keep your own style. Customers can make an appointment or simply walk in. “We understand that people are busy these days,” Carner says. “They have places to go and things to do. We make it as convenient as possible.” Convenient and stylish. “It’s always better when someone else blow dries your hair,” she adds. The two longtime friends got the idea for JustAir after hearing about the styling craze. “It’s been a huge hit in California and New York City. There were two [blow dry bars] in Miami Beach, but none in Fort Lauderdale,” Gettler says.

Downtown Hollywood transforms into one of Broward’s major arts communities

Are you looking for the perfect date night or a wonderful way to catch up with friends? The third Saturday of each month, Hollywood puts on its Artwalk. Transforming into a scene similar to New York’s Greenwich Village, musicians line the streets filling the air with vibrant tunes and artists guide their paintbrushes across canvases. Many galleries in downtown Hollywood open their doors during the event, allowing the public to enjoy works of local and international artists for free. A complete list of participating galleries is available at www. visithollywoodfl.org/artwalk.

owntown Hollywood has always had a historic charm – even several years ago when many area storefronts were vacant and rundown. Seeing a chance to turn the area around and utilize its open space, the Community Redevelopment Agency stepped in and began to transform it into a

hub for arts and culture. Today, the city’s ArtsPark, colorful children’s area, lush green space, beautiful murals and numerous galleries draw people from all over the tri-county area. With other projects in the works, like the anticipated opening of Cinema Paradiso-Hollywood, the ongoing mural program and revitalization of the US1 and Dixie Highway corridor, the future is bright

When going through the Hollywood Arts District, one element stands out: the murals. So far there are eight colorful and distinct works of art at key locations in the downtown area. Some of the mural artists include David “LEBO” Le Batard (1832 S. Young Circle), Ruben Gerardo Ubiera Gonzalez (1925 Harrison St.) and artist duo 2ALAS (1900 Hollywood Blvd.). A ninth mural is currently underway by artist Rob Robi at 1948 Harrison St.

Food trucks

Each Monday from 5:30 to 10 p.m., vibrant food trucks line Young Circle. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs to enjoy the eats from a choice of more than 20 vendors. Admission is free, but food prices vary.

ArtsPark Movie Night

Live glassblowing demonstrations

Each full moon, from 7 to 9 p.m., people of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to come out and participate in the city-sponsored drum circle. If you don’t have a drum, don’t worry. Attendees are also known to bring snares, boxes, shakers, bells, spoons and buckets. With “instruments” in hand, participates are guided in beat until the moon rises. The next drum circle is set for Sept. 18.

Each Friday from 9 to 10:15 p.m., the ArtsPark Amphitheater is filled with sounds by local musicians. Families are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs to listen to music ranging from rock, reggae, jazz and R&B. Fridays at Young Circle are a great way to end a workweek, especially for families. From 5 to 8 p.m., the city hosts “Funtastic Fridays for Kids.” In addition to enjoying the built-in playground and splash zone, children can have fun in a bounce house and get their faces painted. Then, at 8 p.m., is the “ArtsPark Movie Night.” Families are encouraged to bring blankets and

Local comic community united by love of art and storytelling

ntering the room is comparable to being struck with a solid wall of sound and color. Inside, there is not a crowd, but a swarm of people. Their combined chatter is a unified buzz, broken up only by smatterings of laughter and the occasional excited screech. Upon slipping into the horde, it’s clear that this is no typical gathering of people. They are eclectic, dressed in bright costumes and wigs, carrying everything from fake axes to live birds. This is Florida Supercon, an annual convention for fans of comics, anime, video games and science fiction. The July 4-7 event took place at Miami Airport Convention Center. “There’s different things that bring different people there,” said Phil Beracha, owner of Phil’s Comic Shoppe. People go to conventions for numerous reasons: the celebrity guests; the variety of comics on sale; merchandise from assorted vendors, such as T-shirts and fan-made knick-knacks; and the opportunity to dress up as a beloved character. Mostly, Beracha said, it’s about getting the chance to hang out with people who like the things you like. Phil’s Comic Shoppe, at 6512 W. Atlantic Blvd. in Margate, has been in business since 1981. Beracha started reading comics in the ‘60s. He’s seen the fan community evolve and change over the course of decades. It’s much less of a cult now, he said. Fandom still feels like a private, sacred group, but it’s become far more widespread. “There’s even TV shows now,” he said, “it’s big now,” referring to comic book adaptations such as “Arrow” and “The Walking Dead.” Jonathan Rukes, 20, has worked at Docking Bay 94, in Coconut Creek, for seven years.

with fellow fans is at a local comic shop. Since new comics are released every week, readers tend to form a relationship with their supplying shop. The majority of customers at Docking Bay 94 are regulars, many of whom Rukes and Pabellon know by name. “We definitely develop a rapport with them,” Rukes said. “It’s almost like a small family.” The local fan community, which is maintained by the presence of thriving comi shops, comic Guests take part in Florida Supercon at He’s found ound that w is where the Miami Airport Convention Center.

The rest of the year, Orlando Pabellon, 40, who finding a place to visit regularly though, the best way to interact frequents the store, said where there are other people

to talk to about these slowly unfolding stories. That’s why, despite doomsayers who claim otherwise, Richards is not concerned about the comics industry dying out any time soon. This business is not just about the product; it’s about the communal experiences associated with it. For shops like Tate’s, that means their job is not only to sell the book but also to contribute to that social experience. “You’re happy that you came into here and interacted with us,” Richards said. “It’s not about the book anymore, it’s about finding someone you can chat about that book with.” Past Present Future Comics has been at its West Palm Beach location for almost 21 years, and there are two other locations in Davie and Lauderhill. Like Phil’s, they’ve become such a staple of the community that they almost never advertise. “If you’re seeing people every week, you’re seeing them grow up,” said assistant manager Matthew Melnyk, 29. He’s worked at Past Present Future for two years but started helping out long before he became an official employee. Having been around for so long, he’s seen customers who first began visiting the store as children start families and bring their own kids to the shop. Caring about the product certainly helps build a relationship with those regular customers. “If you show enthusiasm and you know what you’re talking about, it really matters to people,” Melnyk said. Regardless of whether a fan finds their niche at conventions, comic shops or online chat rooms, reaching out to this vibrant community has the potential to enrich the comic book experience for both old readers and new. “You’ve got to love it, and if you do, that’s great,” said Richards.
