How An Award-Winning Art & Design Week
Can Change The Way We View Cities
October 15 - 4:00pm - 5:00p
Tune in to hear how Andrew Martineau and Evan Snow, the founders of Art Fort Lauderdale - "The Art Fair On The Water" utilized their revolutionary art fair to create the award-winning Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week. The talk will be moderated by FINN Partners Regional VP. The extension of the city's signature annual art event into other segments of the city was a pivotal piece of the founders’ mission of putting Fort Lauderdale on the art world map as a unique destination to view & interact with art. While many events focus on making a temporary impact in their community, this pioneering art week utilizes award-winning media tactics and innovative concepts like Zero Empty Spaces to make an impact for more than just one week out of the year.
Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week (January 16–24, 2021) is a result of the desire to unite our communities artists and arts & cultural institutions in an effort to highlight all that the city has to offer through an annual self-guided tour and celebration of everything art and culture throughout the Greater Fort Lauderdale area with the ultimate goal of establishing Fort Lauderdale as an international cultural destination.
“Promoting this Art week that showcases the vast amount of cultural opportunities the county has to offer residents, collectors, dealers, art enthusiasts and visitors was a key aspect of building this platform for research and promotion of the arts, its relationship to the community and discussions over contemporary art trends in the areas of the Arts, Architecture, Cinema, Dance, Music, and Theater,” said Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week Co-Founder & Director Andrew Martineau. “So you can imagine the incredible validation we felt when we heard that our Public Relations team FINN Partners won Best Tactics, Best Integrated Campaign and Best of Show for the Destination on Display out of 800 entries in the 2020 PRSA (Sunshine District) Radiance Awards!”
