Enjoy an evening of great art, live music and much more as you explore this unique neighborhood of shops, galleries and cultural experiences. The monthly art walk, scheduled the last Saturday of every month, always delights and offers fun surprises for guests.
Viva Florida 500 Best in Show Series continues at Gallery 928 with its second opening reception featuring Bonnet House fine artists Marilyn Johansen, Flor Lecht, Debi Liptak, Louis Mezian, Debbie Rubin and Tricia Rutsis. Viva Florida 500 Best in Show Series is a celebration of Ponce de Leon discovering La Florida, and the works selected for this series are inspired by 500 years of Florida history, which include abstract as well as realistic interpretations. This exhibition will include works of various media including watercolor, oil, photography and collage. A percentage of all art sale proceeds will benefit Bonnet House programs. All exhibitions include a wine & cheese reception with raffle and are free and open to the public. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece at each show.
This month, the series will feature a special screening of the film SOMM—a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into the mysterious world of the Court of Master Sommeliers. In addition, Stephanie Miskew, certified sommelier and wine educator, will host the event and the guest chef of the month will pair perfect flavors with these fine wines, making this tasting the talk of the town.

When Bunny Yeager hopped in front of the camera decades ago, she became one of the most sought-after models in Miami. Later, she moved behind the lens to become one of the most popular pin-up photographers of her time, succeeding as a woman in a man’s world. Spanning her career from the 1950s to the present, and including her innovative self-portraits and a range of photos that helped define Florida lifestyles of the ’50s and ’60s, this exhibition will include new photographs from her first photo shoot in 30 years. Foto Fort Lauderdale is an exciting series of high-caliber photographic exhibitions that give photography a permanent, year-round home at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale. Organized by Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale in cooperation with Galerie Schuster Berlin.

Portrait of an American innocent. In 1955, Bettie Page (1923–2008) waits to testify before a Senate subcommittee investigating the effects of pornographic material on American adolescents and juveniles. In flashbacks, we see her childhood in Tennessee, a brief marriage, a gang rape, and her going to New York City in 1949. There she takes acting lessons, models for photos, and acts in short films for adults, earning the nickname, “The Pin-Up Queen of the Universe.” We see her relationship with merchants Irving and Paula Klaw, photographers John Willie and Bunny Yeager, boyfriends, and the public. Through it all, she is wholesome, sporting, and forthright – Eve before the fall.
Free with Museum admission. Please RSVP to Kelly Medlin at firstname.lastname@example.org or (954) 262-0227.
