"Public Property: A Reclamative Art Show" Opens May 30th

The first Homeless Hate Laws are going to be enforced starting in June. Not cool Fort Lauderdale!

Therefore, on Friday, May 30th, Fort Lauderdale Food Not Bombs along with community activists and artists will be responding with an art show in Stranahan Park. "Public Property" is an art show held in the midst of the great American privatization crisis; in Fort Lauderdale those who have no private space to keep their possessions now cannot keep it in public spaces either. Public spaces such as Stranahan Park are now accessible only based on your class and status.

So join us for an evening of vegan food, music, and thought-provoking art that will hopefully bring us a little bit of solidarity and hope in the face of a mounting campaign of bad homeless policies in Broward County.

So far we are expecting submissions of photography, sculpture, canvasses, and  maybe even some live art.

For artists, musicians, and cooks, there's still plenty of opportunity to get involved. If you want to submit a 2d or 3rd art piece please let us know soon through the contact form on the right. Musicians can probably just show up with an instrument but if you want to get a specific period of time let us know. 

"Public Property" Opens from 6-8 pm in Stranahan Park, 10 E Broward Blvd, on May 30th, 2014.
