Ignite the New Year with Art

Follow the light to IGNITE, Broward’s new family-friendly immersive art experience showcasing exciting interactive light and video installations by leading contemporary artists and designers. Site-specific artworks will illuminate and activate locations in Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach from January 26 to January 30, 2022. Admission is free and open to the public. 

Downtown Fort Lauderdale will come alive nightly from 6 – 10 pm with spectacular outdoor digital and light-based art at the Museum of Discovery & Science (401 SW 2 St.) and Esplanade Park (400 SW 2 St.).

Daily from 10 am – 8 pm, captivating indoor video, light and design exhibitions will be on display at MAD Arts in Dania Beach (481 S. Federal Highway), with timed reservations available.

Everyone is invited to attend the IGNITE Broward kickoff at Esplanade Park and in the Museum of Discovery & Science’s atrium on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 5:30 pm. The event will include food trucks, music and Broward County Mayor Michael Udine will activate the art at 6 pm. 

A series of talks exploring the intersection of technology and art will also take place during the event’s five-day run, which coincides with Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week.
