City of Lauderhill Recognizes the Artists, Donors and Community Leaders for the Public Art Project
The City of Lauderhill received a grant of $20,000 from the Kresge Unrestricted Fund of the Community Foundation of Broward for the History Promotes Social Change Program.
The City of Lauderhill utilized the grant to create beautiful art on a stand-alone wall which serves as the backdrop for an amphitheater at James Bradley Park. The design by Cynthia Fisher and Ruben Ubiera was a reflection of the migration of the residents who moved into West Ken Lark Community. In addition, the art reflects positive images of their reverence for family unity. Both concepts were considered priorities to the residents of the area.
“A broken family can cause a negative impact on a community. The City of Lauderhill’s External Mosaic Tile Mural Project brought residents together to exemplify how their community remains vibrant, successful contributors of society who are capable of overcoming societal ills. We thank the Community Foundation of Broward for making this opportunity a reality while allowing residents to share their heart with so many others through art,” said Commissioner M. Margaret Bates.
The City of Lauderhill is a municipality established in 1959. Lauderhill stretches over 8.62 square miles and has approximately 67,000 residents. We are located at the center (heart) of Broward County and consider ourselves to be a progressive City that works with residents, community leaders and businesses to understand the needs and desires of all who live, work and play here.
