Sherryl Muriente, an urban acupuncturist, will be focusing on creating a collaborative cross-disciplinary project that captures the voice of the community in regards to the Lauderdale Lakes Children’s Garden. Working together with the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) of Lauderdale Lakes, the Children’s Garden, Boyd H. Anderson High School, Lauderdale Lakes Middle School, Oriole Elementary School, local businesses and neighbors, she will conceptualize improvements to the garden through the use of art.
Muriente finds inspiration to create small-scale interventions which serve as catalysts to transform the larger contexts and activate the complex networks within a place. These subtle interventions resonate in the collective subconscious of those living in the city. Her creativity focuses on happenings, performance art, art installations, and live art.
Funding for this project is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. The project culminates with a review presentation to the Broward Cultural Council on September 17, 2014. The public is invited to attend.
