Somos Vida | We are Life

The City of Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department is happy to invite the public back to the art galleries by appointment only.

Mother Earth is a common expression for the planet earth in a number of countries and regions, which reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit. For this occasion, Latin American Art Pavilion joins in the celebration of International Mother Earth Day with the art exhibition entitled Somos Vida / We are Life.

The human through his own history has paid worship and respect and thanks to Mother Earth for good harvests and the provision of natural materials such as wood, mud, stone for the construction of buildings, furniture and home accessories to support their permanence in the planet. Latin American Art Pavilion proposes a tribute to Mother Earth with artists from its platform through the exhibition Somos Vida / We are Life to address issues such as:

  • Overpopulation
  • Misuse of natural resources
  • Recycling
  • Greater interrelation with nature
  • No water pollution
  • Protection and conservation of flora and fauna
  • Control in the mechanization of agriculture
  • Control of toxic gas emissions

Into Orbit: African American Astronauts Exhibition

The City of Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department is happy to invite the public back to the art galleries by appointment only.

We celebrate our country’s African American Astronauts with an exhibition that inspires younger generations. From the thousands of images available by NASA for educational uses, some of the images selected in this exhibition show the astronauts doing are everyday tasks, like taking photographs and filming, except they are in space. In other photographs, they are training in swimming pools, doing spacewalks, posing during public events and addressing children.

This celebration of our space heroes includes photographs and biographies of astronauts that include: Michael Anderson, Guion S. Bluford, Jr., Charles F. Bolden, Yvonne Darlene Cagle, Robert L. Curbeam, Jr., Benjamin Alvin Drew, Jeanette J. Epps, Victor J. Glover, Frederick D. Gregory, Bernard A. Harris, Joan E. Higginbotham, Mae C. Jemison, Ronald E. Mcnair, Leland D. Melvin, Jr., Bobby Satcher, Winston E. Scott, and Stephanie D. Wilson.

This exhibition is organized in conjunction with LAAP's exhibition on Earth Day, to create a contrast of the exploration and study of our planet, and space exploration, which continues to spark our curiosity. This exhibition was originally presented at the Ali Cultural Arts Center in Summer 2020.

The Devices Project Exhibition 12:00 am | Bailey Contemporary Arts Center
The Devices Project Exhibition

The City of Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department is happy to invite the public back to the art galleries by appointment only.

The Devices Project
Featuring Artists Hillerbrand+Magsamen

The Devices Project explores our relationship to everyday objects and how we use them to playfully survive and cope in a world of personal and political turmoil. From phone apps that let you talk to a million people, to robots in your home responding to your ever word, we still need to feel connected and hopeful. After experiencing the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, TX and the strong community support that arose, we began to think more about ways to prepare in cases of emergency and how this relates to our family and community.

Pulling from the literary concept of Homo Faber that human beings are able to control their fate and their environment through tools, this work examines how a family of four tinkers with and animates banal items such as plastic bags, tape, yarn, aluminum foil, and other household materials in an attempt to connect to each other and the larger world while transforming space, place, person and dwelling.

About Hillerbrand+Magsamen

The artistic team of Hillerbrand+Magsamen is the collaboration of Stephan Hillerbrand and Mary Magsamen. Together they create sculpture, installation, performance, video and photographic works they call “Suburban Fluxus”. Often including their two children, Madeleine and Emmett in their work, the family critiques and playfully scrutinizes contemporary suburban life.

Hillerbrand+Magsamen have presented their videos in international film and media festivals including Houston Cinema Arts Festival, London SciFi Film Festival, WAND V Stuttgarter Filmwinter, New York Underground Film Festival, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Boston Underground Film Festival and MonkeyTown. Their cinematic based installations have been exhibited at the Everson Museum (Syracuse, NY), Center for Photography Woodstock (Woodstock, NY), Diffusion Photography Festival (Wales, UK) and Houston Center for Photography (Houston, TX).

They have received grants from Sustainable Arts Foundation, Austin Film Society, Experimental Television Center, Ohio Arts Council, Houston Arts Alliance and Houston Center for Photography. Their project HIGHER GROUND was a commission from the Houston Airport System and received 1st prize from juror Richard Linklater in the CineSpace program at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival.

Hillerbrand+Magsamen have participated in residency programs including: Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (New York, NY), Experimental Television Center (Owego, NY), Elsewhere (Greensboro, NC), Santa Fe Art Institute (Santa Fe, NM). Stephan Hillerbrand is a recipient of two Fulbright Fellowships (Germany) and MacDowell Colony (Peterborough, NH) residency.
