Thought-Provokers: South Broward

Miami has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around South Broward that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Art has always been a part of my life. I grew up watching my mother, who is also an artist, take on art jobs throughout the community as a side gig while she held onto her full-time teaching position and raised 7 kids at the same time. You can say that watching her has been one of my greatest inspirations. Today, I manage my art business from home while schooling my two children at the same time. Read more>>
