      “HOME: An Artistic Celebration of Community” VIP Preview Night

      ArtServe, South Florida’s historic arts incubator, is bringing its new vision for artistic diversity, community advancement and creative experimentation to life with the launch of “HOME: An Artistic Celebration of Community.”

      Exploring metaphors of habitat and the related idea of belonging, the VIP preview of the multi-disciplinary exhibition includes the unveiling of ArtServe’s 30th anniversary artistic season, an exclusive first-look and tour of the organization’s creative laboratory, a gallery display by local visual artists and a performance piece collaboratively developed by featured artists of all genres.

      Under the artistic direction of Dario J. Moore, the performance piece features former Miami City Ballet dancer and stroke survivor Isanusi Garcia Rodriguez and his mother, Perla Rodriguez, a renowned former dancer from Cuba. Also making significant contributions to the performance are Broward filmmaker and Sistrunk-A-Fair co-founder Emmanuel George, conceptual artist Veronica Fazzio and visual artist Anna Goraczko. Spoken word from Thou Art Woman, an inclusive LGBTQ organization founded by event producer Ghenete “G” Wright Muir, and live music from local musicians further enrich the work.
