A Message from our President, Sandi Hodes:
This is an exciting year for Beaux Art, our community and the Museum of Art! Our membership is strong and our members are thrilled to be involved with various art events and projects within our community. Bonnie Clearwater has started as the new director of the Museum and is poised to lead the museum into an era of unprecedented transformation and growth. Our 2012 event, Up on the Rooftop, A Night at the Museum, was a fabulous success and brought us back to the Museum with a sold-out, art themed party.
Our 2013 event, Art Is, promises even more. Presented by Ed Morse Automotive, this year’s gala will again bring world renowned performance artist Michael Israel to the Museum of Art, along with other exceptional artists, dancers, musicians and performers. Coupled with amazing food, drink and an auction, it is an event you do not want to miss. Beyond benefiting the Museum, we will also be raising money for the AutoNation Academy of Art + Design at the Museum of Art. The Studio School provides merit and need based scholarships to students in grades 1-12, most who do not have art programs in their schools.
I want to personally thank both our corporate and individual sponsors. You provide us with the means to create a spectacular event for our community to raise funds for the Museum and its art education program. I also want to thank our members for all of their time and dedication to reach our fundraising goals.
Our mission is to inspire and promote appreciation, education and support for the Museum of Art and the Fort Lauderdale art community. I encourage you to find out more about Beaux Arts by exploring our website, and I look forward to seeing you all at our events!
Sandi Braverman Hodes, President
