Fort Lauderdale, FL, January 11, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Art Fort Lauderdale, the Art Fair on the Water, partners with the Realtors of the Palm Beaches & Greater Fort Lauderdale - East Broward Service Center (RAPB +GFLR) to help secure homes for the county’s signature art fair. Curated for the affluent, sophisticated homeowner, collector and art aficionado, the fair hopes to explore new avenues for reaching potential collectors of art and interested buyers of homes.
“Art Fort Lauderdale showcases unique art from around the world and gives attendees a vibrant cultural experience. We’re thrilled to be the exclusive Realtor® Association Sponsor of an event that highlights the area’s artistic vision and shows off luxury waterfront properties listed by our members,” said Dionna Hall, CEO of Broward, Palm Beaches, and St. Lucie Realtors®.
This 4-day curated Art Fair transports attendees on an artistic journey along the famed Intracoastal waterways via water-taxi, with stops at vacant luxury waterfront properties that feature artists and galleries exhibiting various styles and methods of art that reflect the past, the present and the future.
This ongoing partnership with the Broward, Palm Beaches, and St. Lucie Realtors® provides Art Fort Lauderdale with incredible luxury listings on the water to choose as hosts for this internationally recognized Art Fair and gives the realtor and seller an opportunity to engage with a curated and qualified attendee made up of interested home buyers and art collectors. Furthermore, the partnership offers a 20% Discount to (Broward, Palm Beaches, and St. Lucie Realtors®) members so that they can attend and/or invite their clients and guests.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with this incredible organization with a territory that spans 130 miles of coastline, and a membership made up of many of the most successful realtors in Florida,” says Art Fort Lauderdale Co-Founder | Director Andrew Martineau. “This is not your typical art fair,” he added. “We like to think of it an artistic journey of discovery along Fort Lauderdale's intracoastal waterways and a Social Practice art piece that explores what happens when the experience of viewing, purchasing and interacting with art is slowed down to encourage engagement, human interaction and social discourse both via water-taxi journey and in a 'home' where art eventually lives.”
