The Broward Cultural Division, in partnership with the Broward County Board of County Commissioners, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Entercom, launched “Searching for Giants” on Friday, September 6, 10:30AM at North Regional/Broward College Library in Coconut Creek.
The kickoff event debuted the first of nine inflatable art exhibitions that will be on display at nine different locations throughout Broward County from September 6 through October 26, 2019.
This first of its kind public art project will bring pop-up art to the County’s 1.9 million residents, with large-scale inflatable sculptures measuring up to 30 feet high. Spread over two months, the exhibitions was designed to encourage audiences of all ages to socially engage with art and culture.
The public was encouraged to visit the inflatable sculptures and to post an image of the art on Instagram tagged @BrowardArts with the hashtag #ArtAcrossBroward.
The inflatable sculptures displayed in “Searching for Giants” were created by Giants in the City, an internationally recognized collective dedicated to bringing the vision and talent of a multidisciplinary group of contemporary artists out of the galleries and museums to public places around the world.
The presentation of the artwork celebrates Broward County’s unique heritage and diverse cultures, as well as its more than 40-year history of promoting public art.
