Opening reception featured iconic South Florida entertainer Tiffany Fantasia
PEMBROKE PINES, FL – The Frank art gallery in Pembroke Pines opened its new exhibition Prism with an opening reception to Friday, Feb. 22 to kick off Pride Weekend. Prism commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and offers an interdisciplinary view of LGBTQIA identity and diversity by using the arts as a catalyst for dialogue. The exhibition is on display through May 4.
At the opening, guests celebrated diversity through artwork and a special family-friendly performance by iconic South Florida entertainer Tiffany Fantasia. Curated by The Frank’s Chief Curator Joshua Carden, Prism features the works of artists Tom Atwood, Shawn Bouffard, Steven Chayt, Christian Feneck, Laura Marsh and Sean Mick. Also, on view during the exhibition is “Our Broward Story,” a short film made by the Stonewall National Museum and Archives that chronicles a campaign in the 1990s to protect Broward County’s LGBTQ community from discrimination. With support from The Community Foundation of Broward, this documentary, directed by Andy Perrott, features longtime activists including Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis.
