Art Basel is over, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until next year to pretend to be cultured or post “creative” selfies to Instagram.
The Wilton Manors Art & Entertainment Expo will be taking place later this month (Jan. 19), perfect for those who have a New Year’s resolution to get out of the house and actually be social. About 13 or more artists will be present including Andrew Mecham (Medium is Water Color). The best part? Admission is free.
“There are a lot of great artists that have great pieces of art that fits any decor,” said Jeffrey Sterling, Marketing Coordinator of Wilton Manors Entertainment Group. “There are also artists that make jewelry for men and women. Not only that, but it's a great way to get out and meet others in the community.”
Added Sterling, “Wilton Drive has a multitude of restaurants, food shops, small businesses and bars that are able to appeal to a broad section of people that helps enhance the event.”
Not to fret if this event interferes with your January Netflix binge watching. This event, which will be renamed Art Walk Wilton Manor starting in February, occurs every third Saturday of the month and will feature different themes for each art walk. This is due to different sponsors for each event.
The Wilton Manors Art & Entertainment Expo is on Saturday, Jan. 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. and is located at 1900-2400 Wilton Drive in Wilton Manors.
