Under the artistic direction of Dario J.

Also making significant contributions to the performance are Broward filmmaker and Sistrunk-A-Fair co-founder Emmanuel George, conceptual artist Veronica Fazzio and visual artist Anna Goraczko. Spoken word from Thou Art Women, an inclusive LGBTQ organization founded by event producer Ghenete “G” Wright Muir, and live music from local musicians further enrich the work. During the evening, ArtServe will also recognize several of South Florida’s most respected arts influencers and organizations for their contributions to the region’s arts and culture landscape. Honorees include Broward Cultural Council Vice Chair Darran Blake, renowned South Florida artist George Gadson, Art Fort Lauderdale and Choose954 co-founders Andrew Martineau and Evan Snow, Broward Cultural Council Chair Jodi Jeffreys-Tanner, Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis and WLRN, South Florida’s NPR and PBS station.
