Art Fallout 2011 drew a huge crowd- SUCCESS!

The numbers of artists participating plus the dedicated art fans that turned out to write their comments on post-it notes proves that there is a thriving scene for contemporary art in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Art Fallout is organized in tandem with National Arts and Humanities Month. We're really pleased that so many people appreciate what the arts and culture contribute to our lives.

Thanks to Teodora Dakova for her photo documentation of Art Fallout.

Many thanks to Julie (center in photo) for her generosity. The women's tees are just about gone, but some men's larges still remain.

Art Fallout 2011 thanks our interns

There is no way we could have installed 122 works by more than 85 artists without some series help!
Girls' Club extends our deepest appreciation to Alexandra Snowden, Phillip Karp, Nicole Kent and Teodora Dakova (who took these photos!) for their intelligence and efficiency - we're thrilled to have them aboard!
