ART STROLL is one of several ways Business for the Arts of Broward helps fund events and expand the services they offer across Broward County, as well as promote economic development to the non-profits they support and advance a creative economy. The event will include an exhibition of artwork for sale with the proceeds split between the artists and BFA. BFA encourages the support of local artists, fosters cultural vitality, and promotes creative success and economic development.
Proceeds from ART STROLL allows Business for the Arts of Broward to continue and expand its innovative programming including the free Arts Mean Business Speaker Series, Art in the Workplace, Art Curation, Public Art Projects, Artist Encounters and continue to support and promote local arts and cultural non-profits and projects.
