To commemorate 40 years of Broward's Public Art & Design program in 2016, local dancers were photographed performing in front of public artworks throughout the County.

Every month, throughout the year powerful visuals emerged full of color, movement and art, resulting in a dozen unique, artistic combinations documented by photographers Tabatha Mudra and Eileen Escarda.

This exhibition, Counterpoints: Forty Years of Public Art, is a compilation of those images. Broward County's Public Art & Design program is dedicated to enhancing airports, seaports, roadways, libraries, parks and other County buildings through art.

Over the past 40 years, the program has grown a collection of more than 260 artworks that include sound and light art, kinetic designs, sculptures, murals, traditional artworks and mixed mediums.
