Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week Returns January 22-30th, 2022 to Showcase the Vast Amount of Cultural Opportunities Broward County Has to Offer
Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week is a result of the desire to unite all of Broward County's artists and arts & cultural institutions in an effort to highlight all that the county has to offer through an annual self-guided tour and celebration of everything art and culture throughout the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
The week, produced by UniteUs Group, will also help promote diversity, bring neighbors into dialogue, increase creativity, and offer opportunities to cultivate civic pride throughout the county and its burgeoning art scene. Since its inception, it has been a breeding ground for discovery, finding synergies and exchanging ideas, with select aligned programming, including museum exhibitions, artist studio tours, gallery openings, Virtual Programs, an artDISCOURSE Series, architectural walks, roundtables, professional encounters and more.

“Building this Art & Design Week over the last couple years has been a labor of love for both myself and Evan and having the Broward Cultural Division’s Ignite Broward take place during the Week is an incredible and exciting addition to the platform that we have created,” said Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week Co-Founder | Director Andrew Martineau. “Furthermore, the Broward Cultural Division has come on as Presenting Sponsor of the week which has been a huge help in this monumental task of promoting the Arts during this concentrated week.”
