In celebration of National Women’s Month, the Pompano Beach Cultural Center is bringing back one of the area’s most exciting events, ArtPOP!

2017 Nautical Flea Market in Pompano Beach

Nautical Flea Market
January 21st, 2017 Pompano Beach hosted its annual Nautical Flea market along with the city of Lighthouse Point. I created a large scale 13×13′ angel fish on Saturday using chalk pastel directly onto the pavement. After priming the street with watered down tempera paint, I filled the fish with brightly colored patterns, using both my hands (yes ouch) & sponges. After a substantial water spill, I was able to fully complete my fishy guy. I had a great time interacting with my community & meeting new faces! Stay tuned for future chalk events…

Surfboard “Color-in” Community Art

Finally saying goodbye to this 6 foot repurposed surfboard from the Yelp Spring Break 2015 Community Color-In with Bailey Contemporary Arts! After outlining a design on a refinished old board, local spring breakers filled in the spaces with sharpie paint pens right on the beach. After a few touch ups and a coat of resin, it is finding its home this week with a lucky buyer. More repurposed board projects to come! Stay tuned

Color the City Lighthouse Point 
On October 19th, 2014 the Lighthouse Point Cultural Arts committee held our first “Color the City” fence weaving event, beautifying the city through public art workshops. I directed this one day collaboration with kids ages 7-14 in weaving vinyl strips of color into public park fences to beautify our local park! It was a unique, fun family event for the community to enjoy-just in time for the November 1st concert in the park event!

 Offerdahl’s Gridiron Grill-off 2014
November 8th, 2014 is the Gridiron Grill-Off Event at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre. A food, wine & tailgate festival presented by the Taste of the NFL featuring music, celebrity chefs & entertainment throughout the day. What does this have to do with art? I was asked along with a few other local artists to paint a Jack Daniels statue to auction off for charity. Proceeds of the purchased statues benefit John Offerdahl’s Hand Off Foundation, Feeding the Needs of Kids in Crisis.
