Open Canvas Project


Imagine transforming an abandoned city building into an exciting art canvas that serves as a public gateway to downtown Fort Lauderdale, FAT Village, and MASS District. Volunteers and community supporters coming together to deconstruct, transform, reimagine. Join us to be a part of the Open Canvas Project that will culminate on October 28, when the former “One Stop Shop” building (301 N. Andrews Avenue) is deconstructed and reimagined as a continuous and collaborative urban art piece during a fair-style, multi-media art event.
