Just in time for Earth Day in April, ArtServe’s latest exhibition is “Changing Landscapes: Art Interventions for a Planet in Crisis.” On display from April 9 to May 27, the multimedia exhibition presents ecologically thematic works and performances that explore threats to the Florida Everglades, Lake Okeechobee and the surrounding seas.
Admission is free, but does not include performances. ArtServe gallery hours are Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. “Changing Landscapes” addresses the impact of humans on South Florida’s fragile ecosystem. Featured artists and collaborators include Before it’s Too Late, Lizzy Taber, Cheryl Maeder, 1,000 Mermaids and Sibel Kocabasi, among others.
Changing Landscapes kicks off with a VIP reception on Saturday, April 11 from 6 to 9 p.m. at ArtServe. The reception includes exclusive performance pieces and tours of ArtServe’s creative laboratory, where artists experiment with concepts tied to social impact. During the reception, ArtServe will also award its Broward County Arts & Culture Visionary distinction to local leaders and “green” influencers. Tickets are $25 per person.
For a family-friendly art outing, ArtServe is hosting its Changing Landscapes community reception on Saturday, April 25 from to 3 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and include pizza, punch and art activities. Admission is free for members and children 12 and under.
Changing Landscapes’ creative works bring awareness to the Florida Everglades through performing and visual art works that ask audiences to consider the needs of our global environment and its inhabitants.
Also included is Project Color Hive, an immersive, multisensory installation created by artists Nicole Gallucio and Ashleigh Walters in collaboration with ArtHive Creative and Capital One®. Project Color Hive is a traveling, vibrantly painted “greenhouse” that guests can enter to learn more about the importance of protecting pollinators.
