Broward Cultural Division recently launched a dynamic, new initiative designed to encourage the community to actively engage with Broward County's Public Art & Design Program. Friends of Public Art  shares the inner workings and the process through which public artworks come to life in the aesthetic tapestry of Broward County. From the selection of artists to the installation of the artwork, members will become knowledgeable about Broward County's museum without walls, while having fun, mingling and learning about public art!
Friends of Public Art members will have unique, behind-the-scenes access to one of the most dynamic and vital contemporary public art programs in the nation. Through a series of events and workshops that include, meet the artist receptions, artist studio visits, expert-led lectures, films, a first-hand look at public art conservation, and invitations to public art special events, members will network and learn about all aspects of public art including current and future Broward County public art initiatives and commissions.
