Art is about more than just painting on a canvas, a photograph in a frame or a sculpture in a museum; it is about the beauty in our daily lives. Everything from the landscaping to the architecture around us can be considered art. The way something looks affects us as much as its practicality.
Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRAs) within Broward County have the task of ensuring that our communities make us feel at home and that properties not only provide spaces for activities, but also that their presentation is just as enticing. From making our streetscapes and properties more attractive to showcasing local artists, CRAs want to make sure their cities shine artistically.
At this time, a number of CRAs are busying themselves with cultural projects. Some have been in the works for years and are now nearing completion; others are in process and some are still in the planning stages.
