UniteUs Group announces Art Fort Lauderdale - the World’s First Art Fair on the Water to be held January 12 - 15, 2017 at properties on Fort Lauderdale’s famed Intracoastal waterways.
Incorporating a different approach to view and interact with art. Art Fort Lauderdale will be an outlet that will give artists the opportunity to showcase their work whether they are independent or being represented by a gallery. The four day event will transport attendees via complimentary water taxi/shuttles and yachts to exclusive exhibits and performances at a number of waterfront properties and restaurants along the intracoastal.
The Fair will feature over 100 artists, 5 Galleries, 8 waterfront properties and 3 restaurants presenting top tier modern and contemporary art. Site-specific art installations, art/technology and performance pieces created for the fair by artists will be featured at the famous $25M property on the intracoastal that was built for Oscar Meyer’s granddaughter, exhibits of...independent artists will be featured at a 7 bedroom $2.6M waterfront estate that boasts over 8000 sq ft of exhibit space and a collection of 4 story $1.6M contemporary townhomes will be curated by a number of galleries presenting their collection of modern and contemporary work.
“Fort Lauderdale is best known for its Intracoastal Waterways and this fair highlights the uniqueness of the city in a deeply immersive and engaging way while allowing people to visit and view art in luxury properties only viewed from a distance by most,” said Andrew Martineau, Co-Founder, Art Fort Lauderdale.
The fair’s Co-Founders Andrew Martineau and Evan Snow are both long time residents of Greater Fort Lauderdale and are deeply engaged in the city’s arts and culture scene. By combining the ultimate Open House at waterfront properties usually viewed from afar, this experience will showcase art in a more intimate setting with the city’s famous intracoastal waterways as its backdrop - thereby providing a fun, and engaging option for people looking for an alternative to the hectic and often frustrating spectacle that is Art Basel Miami Beach.
