MASS District (Music & Arts South of Sunrise) in Fort Lauderdale celebrates it’s first birthday in January and has big plans to make it a night to remember. Art, music, DJ’s, an eclectic variety of vendors, food trucks, murals, free trolleys… maybe you’ll even catch sight of a ten foot robot covered in 3,000 LED lights from #LUTN, one of the businesses in the district. Bottom line is this: January’s Art Walk is going to be legendary. Don’t miss it. Come see for yourself what everyone is talking about. It’s not every day that what was once a dead part of town blossoms into a hotspot for the arts and celebrates a year of incredible growth and milestones.#MASS is a district of creatives and businesses that want community and economic development of Fort Lauderdale through the arts. They support local artists and charities in an abundance of ways and have given the artists of South Florida a voice and a place to call home. Celebrate that!
Breaking into the arts and actually making a living from it is one of the toughest obstacles an artist faces. The creation of the MASS District has literally made it possible for many artists to get started or expand and grow their following so you can imagine how happy the artists of South Florida are to seize this opportunity and be a part of the scene. All fees they collect from the vendors are reinvested in the district and used to promote growth. Another huge bonus is that it only costs $20 to be a vendor as opposed to some other events where fees are higher and may not be obtainable for the masses. MASS is for the masses. MASS is for us all. Join me in commending the group of 15 galleries and creative businesses that combined forces and created this haven for the arts.
January 30th is the day, the day to celebrate the birth of a new era in the arts in Fort Lauderdale. Come say Happy Birthday to MASS and have a blast!
The ArtWalk begins anywhere within FAT Village or MASS District at 6pm.
