Want to experience the finest in contemporary visual arts, a high-quality arts education program for yourself or your child, or a memorable family friendly performance? Look no further than the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, which is designated as one of the eight Major Cultural Institutions out of 600 Broward County cultural organizations by the Broward County Commission.
Since 1978, the Center has served as a vital and necessary home for the creative imagination. Its accomplishments over the past year fulfill that vision. From its historic gallery exhibition Artist Unknown/The Free World to its groundbreaking Hot Topics Discussion Series with national arts leaders to its innovative Creative Connection endeavor to reengage Baby Boomers in the arts, the Center strives to show that the arts are not an extracurricular activity, but rather an essential part of the community.
“The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood strives to bring the arts to the widest possible audience,” says Center Executive Director Joy Satterlee. “We accomplish that goal by offering Free Admission Days, providing free arts education to Broward County Public Schools and giving eligible children tuition waivers to our summer camp.”
On average, more than 50,000 people attend activities annually at the Center’s galleries, arts school and the 500-seat Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center. This summer alone, more than 8,000 people representing 28 states and 26 countries attended the Nathan Sawaya: The Art of the Brick exhibition.
Upcoming visual arts programming includes Justin H. Long’s first Broward County exhibition Bow Movement, which claims sailing as an artistic medium, not just a sport; the variety of outstanding works found in the Annual Abracadabra Exhibition/Fundraiser and the All-Media Juried Biennial; and the legendary original Peanuts drawings of Charles M. Schulz, which have not been shown publicly in 10 years. Also planned is another season of high quality education programs for children and adults, as well as exciting family- friendly performances.
