“Summertime and the living is easy!” What is there not to like about summer? The warmer weather usually leads to a slower pace, which always gives way for us to reconnect with family and friends. It’s also the perfect time to kick our travel bug into full gear as we explore and discover new experiences; both in our own back yards as well as those much further afield. How can we make every second of June count? For starters, we have curated a few events for your consideration which will encourage you to honor Dad, spend quality time with your tot, celebrate cultural heritage, listen to an artist’s vision, or dance in your seat as you delight in a heralded performance. And all of these are just the starters!

If you are looking for the perfect getaway, then we invite you to check out The District’s popular Stay, Play & Ride Package, which combines some of Fort Lauderdale’s best activities with deluxe accommodations, great shopping options, and so much more.

“A Sense of Pride: Transdermal: Across the Skin with Ashley Kerr”
NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale | Noon–1:30pm | Free
Artist Ashley Kerr explores the plurality of gender and identity, and the intersection of painting and sculpture. Her work deals with the nature of expectation and a person's need to maintain a consistent internal logic as it pertains to media, materials and experiences, as well as the intersection of gender, technology, sculpture, femininity, and masculinity. By subverting those very expectations, she aims to create sculptural fictions that reveal the underlying structures and mechanisms of how we experience the world and thereby expose truths, however small or large they may be.
