Jacklyn Laflamme Snowboard

Project Snowboard Art Project to Benefit Special Olympics

A series of snowboards painted by Pembroke Pines artists and teenagers will be auctioned off to benefit Special Olympics Broward County.

Project Snowboard got its start when about 20 snowboards were donated to the group.

“Somebody donated a bunch of snowboards, and we didn’t know what to do with them,” said Linda Mills, director of Special Olympics Broward.

Mills said an idea came up to work with the nonprofit Artists with Autism and have the snowboards painted and sold in a fundraising event.  Read More

Ready Set Paint… Paint The Park Project Renews The Face Of A Community

Paint The Park a community art day and resource fair was held on Saturday, September 14, 2013, to work towards the unification and beautification of a local community. The event took place at Oswald Park, 2220 NW 21st Ave, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311. Residents from the community and all of South Florida were invited to work with the artist to paint two murals and share in the creation of the art to renew the face of their community.

The community art day finally arrived, the weather was perfect and we had an amazing turnout. Everyone grabbed a brush and and got to work as the murals emerged, we were entertained by live music and resource fair. A great time was had by all that attended!

We all have the power to give back to our communities…

We can all make a difference, in this particular case it was inspiring to see how children, teens and adults take pride in their contribution,  a sense of ownership develops when residents participate in the process.

I would like to thank the City Of Fort Lauderdale and all the staff at Osswald Park for all their support, the Broward Cultural Division for helping with the grant process and an extra special Thank You to Melinda Pollard.
