±BROWARD CULTURAL DIVISION

a&e 12

Art and culture are at the dawn of an exciting era with the release of CreativeBroward 2020: A Plan for Cultural and Economic Development in Broward County. More than 100 community volunteers guided it into a local cultural vision for the next 10 years. It calls for organizing economic development of the creative industries for the first time as a unified cultural sector. Commercial and nonprofit, individual and organizational, fine and popular arts, culture and heritage—these formerly disparate elements can be leveraged for greater economic impact. It makes recommendations for developing collaborative, self-reliant and sustainable resources within the creative sector. Surveys show virtually every Broward resident regularly engages in personal cultural activities, including reading books, taking photographs or dancing. The plan calls for a festival of creativity,

combining high-profile curated events with a longer, self-selected “Fringe Festival.” This aims to define and celebrate Broward’s unique cultural identity, built on an international reputation for excellent public art and design and founded on the county’s diversity and creativity. Visit broward.org/Arts/ Resources/P ubl ica tions/Cul turalPlan2020/ Documents/creative_brwd2020pre.pdf to see more. The voice of the community calls for the need to reinvigorate arts and culture programs countywide, continue nurturing growth of local arts and cultural resources, invest in needed infrastructure to accommodate demand, and establish a cultural endowment trust fund. Sincerely, Mary A. Becht, Director

± Refined, Defined Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District

Contemporary Fort Lauderdale features an extensive mix of year-round entertainment options—music, art, drama, dance, history and more—thanks to a rich array of top venues and organizations clustered along the scenic New River in the downtown city center. Collectively, this vibrant destination is known officially as the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District, with five key institutions unifying the District.

Broward Center for the Performing Arts Anchoring the District with a commanding view of downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Broward Center is home to 700 events annually, from classical to jazz, pop to opera, and the best of Broadway. It is consistently ranked among the top 10 venues in worldwide ticket sales. The Center is a leader in developing arts education programs and fostering alliances that build strong communities. The Center also manages Parker Playhouse, Rose & Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center at Nova Southeastern University, Miramar Cultural Center/Arts Park and Aventura Arts & Cultural Center. 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue | browardcenter.org | 954-462-0222

Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale

Under the auspices of Nova Southeastern University, the Museum is one of Florida’s most important cultural showcases. Located in the heart of the District, it specializes in exhibitions that draw crowds from around the globe. As a center for gatherings, the Museum Café is an ideal spot to enjoy coffee or wine after exploring a new exhibition. The Museum’s Studio School offers 10-week, professionally taught courses in painting, drawing, design, art history and musical theater for adults and children. Complimentary general admission on the third Thursday of every month. 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. | moafl.org | 954-525-5500

Florida Grand Opera Celebrating its 70th season of presenting world-class performances, Florida Grand Opera is one of the state’s leading companies, producing a classic repertoire rich in romance, drama and adventure as well as lesser-known works from the great composers. Its operatic legacy thrives in its Young Artist Studio, a residency for talented young singers. Internationally recognized as a top training program, the Studio selects eight professional singers, from hundreds who apply each year, who serve as ambassadors of opera and the “face” of FGO in the community. 221 S.W. Third Ave. | fgo.org | 954-728-9700

± Fort Lauderdale History Center Located on the New River, the History Center brings history to life and preserves it for the enrichment of present and future generations. Its four historic buildings include The New River Inn (1905), The Philemon Bryan House (1905), The Acetylene Building (1905), and The King-Cromartie House Museum (1907). The site includes a replica of Broward County’s first schoolhouse and the Hoch Heritage Center, a research library featuring historic photographs for sale and extensive archival material about Broward County and greater Fort Lauderdale. Permanent and temporary exhibits are offered throughout the year. 219 S.W. Second Ave. | oldfortlauderdale.org | 954-463-4431

Historic Stranahan House Museum

Built in 1901 by Frank Stranahan (the “Father of Fort Lauderdale”) and wife Ivy (the city’s first school teacher), Stranahan House was the epicenter of the area’s activity. Initially designed as a trading post for Seminole Indians, it also served as a community center, post office and bank for local businessmen. Originally the largest house on the New River, it has been preserved to offer a glimpse into Florida’s pioneer life. Memorable seasonal events, including October “Ghost Tours” and Victorian Christmas evenings, take you back in time. 335 S.E. Sixth Ave. | stranahanhouse.org | 954-524-4736

Britto has donated a limitededition piece titled All About Ray to the Center in honor of its anniversary—a vibrant, joyous image of a woman playing a guitar. Now on display, the artwork will be auctioned in February, with proceeds funding the Center’s educational initiatives and community enrichment programs.

20 One of the very best ways to celebrate the Broward Center’s milestone is to celebrate the centennial of the city it calls home. Fort Lauderdale turns 100 years old in 2011. “The Broward Center is one of our city’s finest cultural treasures,” says Mayor John P. “Jack” Seiler. “Over the past two decades, the facility has made an enormous contribution to advancing arts and culture in our community through world-class music, ballet, opera, and theatrical productions, along with signature educational programming. We congratulate the Broward Center.” And a tip of the hat back to you, sir. A calendar of city events is at ci.ftlaud. fl.us/centennial/index.htm.

Legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman amazes in the most extraordinary ways. BY JASON DAVIS

susan farley

Among the many achievements of violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman during the 50-plus years since his American debut, it’s one thing he apparently did not do that sometimes earns lavish praise. In 1995, as the legend goes, Perlman completed a concert at New York’s Avery Fisher Hall with an instrument that lost a string midway through the performance. His adjustments and recalculations on the fly brought the audience to its feet with thunderous applause for one of the greatest examples of classical improvisation ever witnessed. A newspaper columnist wrote about the moment a few years later, but there was one problem: He didn’t actually see it for himself and was simply relaying what he had heard. And none of the New York critics had mentioned such an incident in their-next day concert reviews, either, as they surely would have, as Perlman purportedly told the crowd that “sometimes it is the artist’s task to find out how much music you can still make with what you have”—a quote deserving of immediate induction into the pages of Bartlett’s. Where the anecdote started is unknown, despite the efforts of urban-legend researchers. But, despite the lack of independent verification, it remains a tidy and inspirational—albeit apocryphal—tale about overcoming your challenges. Maybe it’s because we’re willing to believe such a thing is plausible for someone of Perlman’s seemingly limitless ability. Perlman, 65, is a superstar in a musical genre that rarely confers such status upon living perAT A GLANCE formers, continuously delighting audiences since his 1958 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show • WHAT: Itzhak Perlman in a solo by proving himself a durable master of baroque, classical, romantic and modern compositions, recital of audience favorites, as and beloved for his personality and humanity.

DIVINELY INSPIRED A traveling exhibition of rare Vatican treasures explores the nexus of history and faith. BY JASON DAVIS

“In order to communicate the message entrusted to her by Christ, the Church needs art. Art must make perceptible, and as far as possible attractive, the world of the spirit, of the invisible, of God. It must therefore translate into meaningful terms that which is in itself ineffable. Art has a unique capacity to take one or other facet of the message and translate it into colors, shapes and sounds which nourish the intuition of those who look or listen. It does so without emptying the message itself of its transcendent value and its aura of mystery.”

In his 1999 “Letter to Artists,” Pope John Paul II used those words to reaffirm the unyielding bond between art and faith. To be sure, this bond is not unique to Christianity, but it is especially significant given how it has shaped Western civilization’s art, history and culture for more than 2,000 years. Ever since the earliest Christians secretly drew religious symbols on walls when they were persecuted for their beliefs, art has been used to help even the illiterate understand the tenets of the faith. By the Middle Ages, after Christianity was legalized in Rome, the Roman Catholic Church was commissioning cathedrals filled with religious artwork AT A GLANCE as a visual representation of devotion. • WHAT: Vatican Splendors: A And by the mid-1500s, as Christianity Journey Through Faith and Art established itself as the dominant reli• WHEN: January 29-April 24 gion in Europe and the Western Hemi• WHERE: Museum of Art | Fort sphere, the church drew up guidelines Lauderdale, 1 E.

Now, some 500 years after the founding of the Vatican’s museums, the creation of St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s painting of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, many of those treasures are coming to South Florida for a three-month exhibition at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale. Vatican Splendors: A Journey Through Faith and Art is one of the largest collections of art, documents and historically important objects from the Vatican ever to tour North America. More than 200 items are featured, including paintings by Giotto and Il Guercino, sculpture by Bernini, Michelangelo’s tools, a reliquary containing the remains of St. Peter and of St. Paul, mosaics, papal jewels and more. “This exhibition isn’t just about Catholicism, or even Christianity, really,” says Irvin Lippman, the museum’s executive director. “It’s about religion itself. How do artists exhibit their faith? How do we exhibit our faith? While we certainly hope this opens a very public conversation about religion, it’s just as much about history. And art is the visual history of our civilization.” The Museum of Art has mounted a number of popular exhibitions of religious works in the past, including a 2003 showing of papal artifacts and a 2006 exploration of the shared roots of Judaism and Christianity. Lippman says the unique nature of Vatican Splendors, which ends its three-city run in Fort Lauderdale (after stops in St. Louis and Pittsburgh), as well as the region’s robust Catholic heritage could make it one of the museum’s most popular exhibitions ever, perhaps rivaling the 2005 King Tut exhibition that drew 650,000 visitors over four months.

Walk the Talk Explore the city on the river like a native, with monthly tours that showcase its rich history. BY JASON DAVIS

The story of Alexander “Sandy” Nininger exceeds the limits of ink on paper. You really have to hear it for yourself. Oh, sure, the written word says plenty. Good high school student. West Point graduate. Fought in the Pacific during World War II. Died in combat. Posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. The spoken word, however, gives Nininger true dimension. Founder of the Key Club at Fort Lauderdale High. Nominated to the U.S. Military Academy by city leaders. Entered the war as a lieutenant, promoted quickly. Fought while wounded three times in the legendarily bloody battle for Bataan. Died in singlehanded combat well behind enemy lines. The war’s first Medal of Honor recipient. All before age 24. It’s the kind of story you’ll hear—and never forget—when you take part in the monthly docentled walking tours of Old Fort Lauderdale. Presented by the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, the tour explores the city’s roots—going back to a time before it even was a city—and brings a fascinating past to life. From the 1905 New River Inn to the modern Broward Center (where a monument to Nininger stands along the waterfront) and back, the mile-long tour along the Riverwalk is a mustdo for anyone interested in seeing aspects of the 24

city that are easily missed by car. Where did the Seminole Indians make arrowroot flour? Who was Count Nugent, and why does he have a road named after him? Why was Mediterranean Revival architecture so popular here? What’s the deal with the Acetylene Building? These answers and many more reveal themselves on every expedition. Tour groups stay reasonably sized, which allows participants to satisfy their individual thirst for knowledge. “When the groups are smaller, people tend to ask more questions,” says Kent Planck, one of several tour leaders. “They feel more comfortable speaking up, and I try to engage them whenever possible by asking them what they think, such as why Fort Lauderdale got its start where it did, or which building [in a particular place] is older, etc.” You don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate this intimate look at the city. Seeing how much the city has transformed itself since its earliest days, from tropical outpost to bustling metropolis, is enough to give anyone pause. “In many ways, Fort Lauderdale’s story is Florida’s story—constant change,” says Ellen Ferrelli, the Society’s educational services director. “And change is always more fascinating when you know where you started from.”

Ghosts are trendy. most historic But Fort Lauderdale’s historic Stranahan House was landmarks, is ahead of the curve. inhabited by the spirits of those For years, this Riverwalk landmark has been one of who lived there. America’s top destinations for those seeking to explore the surreal. Spooky encounters have been documented there since 1929, when homeowner Frank Stranahan took his own life, but it wasn’t until about a decade ago that an organized team of “ghost hunters” received permission to thoroughly examine the house. When they reported their findings of high levels of paranormal activity, “things really took off,” says Marlene Schotanus, education director for the house that’s now a museum dedicated to Florida’s pioneer days. “Soon, we had people coming from AT A GLANCE far and wide, wanting to do their • WHERE: Historic Stranahan own investigations.” House Museum, 335 S.E.

ing childbirth; and Ivy’s father, who died of old age. Skeptical? You’re not alone. Even Schotanus isn’t completely sold on the premise of ghostly visitors. But she also doesn’t have an explanation, either, for the photograph (pictured above, center) she took in November 2009—which stands alone in a series of digital images in which the ethereal apparition is not otherwise seen. She says the image has not been altered in any way. She took the photo during one of the museum’s weekly River Ghost Tours, an increasingly popular, family-friendly event in which visitors are invited to attempt to stir the house’s spirits with dowsing rods and cameras, followed by a boat ride on the New River, during which they’re regaled with tales of colorful, early Fort Lauderdale characters who lived along the banks and are said to come back and visit from time to time. For those who don’t believe in the great beyond, Schotanus stresses the historical aspects of the tour. “Our priority is focusing on the history of the era,” she says. “And some of that history deals with superstitions and traditions. As for the rest, we’re only sharing what the paranormal experts have concluded.” But, she adds, there are plenty who do believe—and there are excellent opportunities to satisfy their curiosity. A team from Realm Chasers Paranormal, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to researching unexplained phenomena, holds monthly seminars at Stranahan House to teach visitors how to conduct their own investigations, from technique to equipment. Either way, you’re left with a tale to tell. “Clearly, there are people who are more sensitive to these things than others,” Schotanus says. “I think it’s fascinating that they can tune in on something that not everyone can. If nothing else, it makes you think.”

II LUGANO HOTEL

W forT lauderdale

The Art of Hospitality Area hotels provide more than lodging for Riverwalk visitors. They’re an outstanding blend of culture and comfort. BY BEN SCHILLING

“When I walk into a hotel space,” says iconoclastic design expert Clodagh O’Kennedy, “I want all of the senses to feel enlivened.” It seems many of Fort Lauderdale’s leading luxury hotels and resorts have taken her words to heart. By combining comfortable places to stay with intriguing and energizing art, in its many forms, they have happily accepted the challenge. At W Fort Lauderdale, for example, this is certainly true. Opened in 2009, the hotel consulted with Clodagh (known professionally by only her first name) to create its overall design. The result was a comprehensive stylebook that outlines nearly every aspect of the décor, such as using ocean waves as inspiration and incorporating found and fine art objects throughout the hotel, which has been hailed for its modern, cutting-edge appearance. Indeed, big names in the art world have made their presence in other area luxury hotels as well. At il Lugano Suite Hotel, glass works inspired by some of the world’s best known artists take center stage in the lobby—from a unique hand-blown chandelier to numerous plates and vases—and create a visual mood that carries throughout the gracious boutique hotel, which opened in 2008. Elsewhere, art assumes any number of dimensions. Start with the classic: Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale features a nautical theme throughout its 24 stories. From its glass exterior to its curving walls, the design brings to mind a Golden Era lux28

ury ocean liner. But the hotel’s oceanfront bar really brings it all home with a 13-foot centerpiece mural of King Neptune, created by Canadian artist C. Perreault and inspired by the 1880 painting, King Neptune and His Horses. Then expand your definition: Marriott Harbor Beach sets an artful tone—literally—with carefully coordinated in-house ambient music, from lighter sounds in the morning to upbeat and jazzy numbers at night. Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Resort & Spa, meantime, proudly showcases its architecture—a tower with a revolving restaurant on top, built in 1964 and still one of the most easily identifiable landmarks of the city’s skyline. It runs deeper, of course, as many area hotels offer direct support of the local arts and entertainment community through special offers, partnerships and promotions. W, for example, hosts occasional film screenings and also offers a prix fixe “theater dinner” menu at its Steak 954 restaurant timed perfectly for performances at Broward Center. “We’re lucky to be located so close to the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District,” says marketing manager Monica Burgos, “and we hope to encourage our hotel guests and local visitors to take advantage of the endless opportunities there.” Look for the latest information about hotel packages and deals at RiverwalkAE.com.

What’s for Dessert? Chocolate, of course—with local restaurants offering deliciously decadent treats. BY BEN SCHILLING

The ancient Mayans were first to understand the beauty of chocolate. They roasted and ground cocoa seeds into a powder, mixed it with water and spices and consumed lustily. It wasn’t just a favorite food—it was essential to their lives. Not much has changed in 1,000 years. We still love chocolate. Frequently, we crave it. It soothes, it energizes, it delights, and it’s essential to our social lives—a night on the town almost always comes with dinner, and a memorable dinner almost always comes with dessert. At notable restaurants in and near the Riverwalk A&E District, there are many sweet endings to choose from. At Truluck’s, in the Galleria shopping center, the signature dessert is the Chocolate Sack. Approximately the shape and size of a small paper bag—hence the name—it is filled with yellow sponge cake, berries and frosting. The trick is deciding how to eat it: digging into the edible package with a spoon, or attacking it with fork and knife? Either way is fine, says associate manager Tom Karl, who adds that chocolate lovers often return for this treat. The best-selling dessert, however, is the carrot cake with fresh pineapple and sweet cream cheese icing. “Either choice is tremendous,” he says. Dessert lovers agree. Another favorite is the Crème Brûlée Trio at 15th Street Fisheries, at Lauderdale Marina. It features vanilla, coffee and chocolate crème portions, with the chocolate (infused with tarragon to impart a light but intriguing after-note) receiving the most attention, says executive chef Lenny Judice. “It’s been a major hit since we added it to the menu [in Spring 2010],” he says. “It’s going to be around for a while.” YOLO, on East Las Olas Boulevard, is known for a warm bread pudding that includes chocolate chips folded in, along with raisins and pecans. Checking in at about 4 inches in diameter, it’s served with vanilla bean 30

ice cream, caramel sauce and seasonal fruit. “There’s just such a wow factor when you see the size of it,” says chef/ partner Peter Boulukos, “and again when you taste it.” Hotel dining is no exception. Da Campo Osteria at il Lugano features a chocolate chip soufflé constructed tableside and presented in a cast-iron vessel, topped with mocha gelato and mascarpone anglaise. Shula’s on the Beach at Westin Beach Resort, meanwhile, showcases its Perfect Season Seven-Layer Chocolate Cake, a simple-but-decadent slice of cake standing nearly 5 inches high, with chocolate cream frosting and chocolate shavings. Nearby, The Grateful Palate on Southeast 17th Street might be an exception to the rule. Though it offers several chocolate dishes, the most popular dessert is the cool, refreshing Indulgence, says manager Adam Irvin. A blend of tropical sorbet made in-house, passion fruit curd and a crisp meringue topping, it’s a mainstay on the restaurant’s ever-changing menu.

Chocolate, in its myriad forms, is the ultimate after-dinner dessert choice for many people.

Natural Wonders Made of earth elements and inspired by the past, today’s fashion accessories can add an artful touch of casual sophistication to any evening on the town. BY BEN SCHILLING

Staying “fashionable” is an ever-changing concept, always susceptible to shifting tastes and sensibilities. But given our culture’s growing passion for the environment and all things eco-friendly, perhaps it comes as no surprise that one emerging highfashion trend for the 2010-11 season—if not beyond—is a nod to Mother Earth. Accessories made from organic materials—such as wood, bone, leather and coral—are rapidly gaining in popularity. Experts say chic necklaces, bracelets, watches and earrings are taking inspiration from nautical, tribal and traditional looks, and anyone hoping to stay on the leading edge of style for a night on the town should consider themselves advised accordingly. For men, leather watchbands are regaining their classic-elegance luster after several years of taking a back seat to metal and rubber. For women, ornate wood bangles are especially hip, either in vibrant colors—reds, yellows and blues—or with bone or mother of pearl overlay. That’s not to say precious metals and stones are out of vogue. Robin Levinson, owner of Levinson Jewelers on Las Olas Boulevard, is a proponent of mixing media when it comes to accessories. “You can mix the natural look with diamonds to nicely show off an elegant piece,” she says. At her store, popular items include oversize cocktail rings, dangling earrings and beaded bracelets and necklaces, which she procures from select designers across the globe. “[The trend toward natural elements] is a nice diversion from the usual,” she adds. “It’s fun to try different things once in a while.” High-end retailers are gladly helping usher in this trend, including those found at Bal Harbour Shops, one of the country’s most recognized luxury shopping destinations. Tiffany & Co., for example, recently introduced a bamboo bangle that features a tropical pattern of 18-karat white gold and diamonds. Lanvin, meantime, showcased a breastplate necklace made of wood and semiprecious stone. The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale is one of the region’s most popular destinations for sophisticated shopping, featuring dozens of stores that appeal to one’s sense of fashion, whether it’s fine jewelry (with major retailers such as Kay, Mayor’s and Zales) or apparel and accessories (Banana Republic, Cole Haan, Coldwater Creek and others). Likewise, those who treasure accessories are familiar with the retailers who have a presence at Mizner Park in Boca Raton. Luxury jewelers and watchmakers, such as D Stern, F.P. Journe, Jaeger LeCoultre, Les Bijoux and Van Cleef & Arpels, make their home alongside clothiers such as Bolufé, Martier, LF Stores and Plattinni. 32

THE COSMETIC FILLER CHOICE OF CELEBRITIES SCULPTRA

here is no need to fly to Beverly Hills! Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera is one of the top 5 injectors for Sculptra in the entire United States and is also a Top Platinum Level master injector of Botox and fillers for Allergan! Sculptra when done well can easily erase decades off your apparent age and you will look as young as you feel. The results can be dramatic producing a youthful, symmetric, invigorated look. Sculptra is different from other dermal fillers in that it is not a gel or other substance that is injected to erase a specific wrinkle or fold. Sculptra works entirely by stimulating the body to create its own new collagen. When done correctly, this creates a more gradual and very natural increase in facial volume, which is why it is so popular among celebrities. People will comment on how great and young you look but

near the jaw and looking less masculine. Dr. Aguilera masterfully administers Sculptra to recreate the masculine jaw that the years have diminished or adds a more masculine jaw line that genetics simply did not create. For women, he can resculpt the softness and roundness of the jaw line and build it back up to a plump, round, youthful volume and tightening the loose skin in this area. Like a master artist sculpts, Dr. Aguilera will recreate the younger looking masculine or feminine jaw and youthful face that the years have diminished. Celebrities and our patients alike have discovered the wonderfully unique benefits of Sculptra!

You are apparently “growing younger.” The new collagen synthesis will cause the skin to reflect more light which gives the skin an overall more youthful and rested appearance without anyone knowing you had any treatment at all! The effect is realized at about week eight after injection with improvements continuing up to six months. This is a very long lasting filler of up to two years.

SALUTING THE 70TH FOR FLORIDA GRAND OPERA Long before South Florida became the cosmopolitan destination it is today, opera was a major part of the local cultural landscape. Florida Grand Opera, the nation’s seventh-oldest opera company, celebrates its 70th anniversary this season with three productions at the Broward Center —Puccini’s Turandot, Offenbach’s The Tales of

Hoffmann and Mozart’s Don Giovanni—in addition to the May 14 Family Opera Festival, a free event designed to introduce the genre to children. FGO was born from the 1994 merger of the Greater Miami Opera (founded in 1941) and the Opera Guild of Fort Lauderdale. “Our 70th anniversary season,” says FGO General Director Robert M. Heuer, “is a cause for celebration in South Florida as we enjoy these coming productions of truly grand opera, and revel in the glorious singing, visual spectacle and dramatic power that combine to create one of the most rewarding artistic experiences to be had anywhere.” • For more information, call 800-741-1010 or visit fgo.org.

12 AND 14 MAY

Florida Grand Opera: Don Giovanni

THE TALES OF HOFFMANN

Considered by many to be the most perfect opera ever written, Mozart’s work continues to thrill audiences today as it did at its premiere in 1787. It was the second collaboration between Mozart and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte following their success with The Marriage of Figaro. Mozart used the story of the infamous lover Don Juan to create one of opera’s most vivid characters and one of the world’s most popular operas. 8 P.M. Broward Center 954-462-0222

A Cincinnati native who came to New York City in 1956 to attend classes at Cooper Union, Tom Wesselmann was one of the originators of Pop Art. Along with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist and Robert Indiana, Wesselmann created a body of works that helped define America’s visual identity in the 1960s. Chiefly a figurative painter with a special affinity for the nude female form, Wesselmann became famous for a series of paintings begun in 1961 that he called The Great American Nude. This exhibition spans more than four decades, from 1959 to his 2004 death, and includes more than 100 works, many large in scale and created

GETTING AROUND It’s easy to explore the Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District.

“The District” refers generally to the area of downtown Fort Lauderdale beginning at Avenue of the Arts (to the west) and continuing along the Riverwalk, Himmarshee Boulevard and Las Olas Boulevard almost as far as the Intracoastal Waterway (to the east). It is located near Fort Lauderdale’s famous beaches and only minutes away from major highways, Port Everglades and Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Whether you come by car or cab, arrive by water taxi or Sun Trolley, a fantastic experience is in store. Once you’re there, getting around is easy. Most attractions are within an easy walk. Alternatively, just wave and the Sun Trolley will stop for you and take you to your next District destination. Or, for a real Riverwalk treat, travel by rickshaw from place to place.

TRAVELING BY CAR • FROM INTERSTATE 95: Exit Broward Boulevard east. Right on Avenue of the Arts (Southwest Seventh Avenue). Left on Himmarshee Street (Southwest Second Street).
