President's Message


The 2014/15 season will be an exciting year for Beaux Art, our community and the Museum of Art!

Our mission is to promote appreciation and education as well as support MOAFL.

Our membership is strong and we are are thrilled to be involved with various art events and projects within our community. Bonnie Clearwater and her team at MOAFL  have been working hard to bring transformation and growth to the arts in Broward County with an amazing schedule of exhibits and events.   Be sure to become a member today! 

A new program ‘Mini Muse’ will be introduced by MOAFL and Beaux Arts.   A monthly event, Mini Muse allows children 5-10 the opportunity to tour exhibitions, as well as hands-on workshops led by the Museums educators.   

The Beaux Arts 2013 Fall event,  Ed Morse Presents:  Art IS,  was once again, a sold out event that allowed us to donate $100,000 (with matching gifts) to MOAFL.    Our 2014 event, After Dark, will feature renowned artist, Julian Schabel’s work and will prove to be a fun night while supporting a great cause – We look forward to seeing you there!

About Beaux Arts 

In the fall of 1959, a small group of women formed a volunteer organization dedicated to the Museum of Art. They decided to sponsor a Festival to raise money for the arts.  It was the first of its kind in Fort Lauderdale.  Fifty-four years later, our organization still thrives completely on the hard work of our members. Our membership is comprised of passionate and energetic women who devote their time and talent to support the arts in their community.

Since its inception in 1959, Beaux Arts has raised more than $5 million dollars for the Museum of Art. We also support the local art community. Beaux Arts is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with a mission to encourage among children, young people and adults a more thorough understanding and appreciation of fine and applied arts.  We are proud to organize and present annual events that bring the community together to celebrate culture while benefiting the arts.
