“Instead of our audience being disconnected observers, documenting bits and pieces with their phones, we invite them to dive into the event with things to touch, taste, see, smell and hear – during our ‘Here and Now,’ from 8 PM to 9 PM,” says Street. “Take a one-hour tech vacation.”

Featuring:
Art
Music
Performance
Site-specific Installation

Through visual art, music, interior design and site-specific performance, The Sacred Here aims to be a playful, yet powerful event; it is the moment when our belief in the great potential of our community becomes reality. Presenters and collaborators also include photographer and filmmaker Cathleen Dean, illustrator Maru, writer P.L. Como, teaching artist and DJ Rich Ejire, photographer Ayanna Muata, textile artist Laraia Dean, writer Tresa Chambers and choreographer Petagay Letren.

This official Broward 100 event is cohosted by Donnet Bruce of Nubian Oasis, and Jacqueline Romano, community activist. As part of the goal in engaging all of the audience’s senses, green sanctuary spaces will be featured throughout the building, created by Fortner’s Garden. The beverage sponsor is Jardesca, a new Sonoma-crafted aperitiva inspired by the vineyards and gardens of California – a feast for the senses in itself. The doors open at 7 PM, and guests are invited to enjoy the atmosphere up until 10 PM. There will also be a free trolley to the Downtown FAT Arts Village.

“Unlike other exhibitions, this isn’t about you wandering from one artist’s wall to another,” says Laraia Dean, another artist. “It’s a journey, like a story, with a beginning, middle and end. It begins as soon as you walk through the doors.”

Bio: Niki Lopez is a multi-disciplinary visual artist, graphic designer, and art teacher. Her often ‘other-worldly’ art has been featured in local and national publications, as well as exhibited across South Florida in locations such as Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art. She is an Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Alumni, member of the Broward Arts Guild, and one of the original members & advocates of Artspace’s Sailboat Bend Artists Lofts.

Lopez is also known for exploring the concept of “alien” in her work. To her, alien isn’t just about the cosmos. “We’re all aliens in some way, not just feeling out of place in this new economy, but being transplanted in new surroundings and having new frames of mind. At our root, our ancient knowledge is alien to us, and it’s my job to help people rediscover it.”

Ask anyone who knows Niki Lopez and the first word they use to describe her is “community”. As one of the founding members of the 1310 Gallery in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, her studio is a meeting place for church pastors, youth workers, LGBT activists, artists, entrepreneurs, singers, poets, and everyone in between.
