Spotlight on Girls' Club

Girls' Club will open for a special one day exhibition Art Fallout: Thinking on Paper, where visitors can not only see new work from local artists, but get involved by offering their own comments and feedback for the artists. This interactive experience breaks down barriers between audiences and artists, engaging in a direct dialogue about contemporary art. A distinguished panel of South Florida arts professionals have also been invited and will offer their insights to emerging artists.

All south Florida artists are invited to submit work on paper for exhibition. All mediums accepted, but work must be on paper. Guidelines, details and the online submission form are available at Works can be dropped Wednesday-Friday until the October 4 deadline.

During the event, Bite Gastrotuck will be just outside, serving a menu which includes one of Americas top 100 burgers with a large arrange of toppings, crafted milkshakes, hand cut fries and onion rings.
