Beyond the Borders is the culmination of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County’s summer Art with a Heart program. Each club provides youth with art classes taught by caring, talented artists using a variety of artistic styles and mediums. The art program provides youth with an outlet to communicate their emotions and ideas, and the opportunity to become empowered by the diversity within our communities. The theme of this year’s exhibition encourages these young artists, ages 6 – 18, to look beyond societal norms and to explore new ways of interacting with their world. The artwork was created in four categories: acrylic paint, recycled art, cardboard 2D sculptures and graffiti art.
