The brainchild of husband and wife duo, David Horvitz and Francie Bishop Good, the Girls' Club Collection is as it says. Promoting contemporary women artists and giving them a platform to establish their work, this unique gallery acts as a resource center for art students, artists and curators on the role played by women in the contemporary art scene. The exhibits are private collections of the gallery owners and art works of domestic and international artists. The converted warehouse has crystalline, light green fiberglass planks on its steel body which gives it a beautiful glow in the night. The gallery has wall partitions that are adorned with LED lights and defined public and private zones. The Girl's Club Collection also regularly holds educational programs and events for the public.
Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre (FLCT) was conceptualized by a couple of mothers in 1952 and is one of the rare theaters in the United States who use children and young adults not only as actors but backstage crew, technicians and assistant directors as well. Enthralling audiences through many decades now with their superb productions, the main focus of the theater is to develop cultural opportunities for kids in a safe, creative and fun environment. With various outreach programs, classes, camps and shows, they have created an impact on many young people and their families. FLCT has also won many awards for its contribution to the community as well as theater.
A laid back variation on Miami's sun-soaked beach culture, Fort Lauderdale is a coastal city with an engaging spirit. It wasn't until 1838 that the United States established the eponymous fort in the area, though the fort was abandoned after the Second Seminole War, leaving the area relatively undeveloped until 1890. It wasn't until Fort Lauderdale was established as an air force training center and military base that population surged. Today, Fort Lauderdale is a popular yachting center just outside the busy waters of Miami with a harbor dotted with swanky yachts, offering a range of water activities and scenic white-sand beaches to visitors. Among its many attractions, Las Olas Boulevard with its chic bars and trendy boutiques and the paved brick roads of the Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk stand out.
