The Pompano Beach Cultural Center

50 W. Atlantic Blvd.

Pompano Beach, FL 33064

The short film ‘Caressed’ will be shown. It is an art film and a self-portrait, mixed-media video installation combining performance art and a poem Niki Lopez wrote about a traumatic childhood memory. Niki was featured in People magazine regarding her growing up in a cult and the abuse she endured. This intimate piece is a part of a series with her personal artwork within the art movement: What’s Your ElephantCreative Conversations about the Unknown. The intentions behind Lopez’ work is to not only share a personal elephant but to have discussions surrounding unspoken topics such as abuse, survivors of abuse, awareness, the power of a ‘share’ and how the arts can be used to heal, to empower and to educate. This session will also consist of a performance and artist lead discussion based on the mission of “What’s Your Elephant.”Tickets for all events are $10 and can be purchased at the door.

41 NE 1 St.

Pompano Beach, FL, 33060

Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA) presents “Tamiami Trail: In the Beginning,” an exhibition of original artworks by members of the Miami-based Tropical Botanic Artists collective. The botanical subjects were selected to mark the 100th anniversary in 2015 of the start of work on Tamiami Trail, a roadway begun in 1915 in Miami. Today, it stretches across the Everglades from Miami to Naples and northward to Tampa, through areas that were largely wilderness a century ago. The exhibition’s more than 30 plant portraits depict species found then and now in multiple vegetation zones along the route. Due to human intervention and changes in water flow, some of the plants illustrated are rare or endangered, and their predominant locations may have shifted, but all persist in South Florida’s landscape.
