Mockingbird Trail, Downtown Fort Lauderdale's New 2-Mile Urban Art Trail, Launches Oct. 17
Downtown Fort Lauderdale's first urban art trail will be unveiled to the public on Saturday.
Mockingbird Trail, located in Flagler Village, was created by landscape architecture firm Cadence and features sculptures by Valeria Yamamoto. It stretches over two miles and features green walkways, outdoor seating, exercise routes, urban street furniture, and more than a dozen public art installations.
The trail will officially launch during the 6th annual Art Fallout in Flagler Village on Saturday, Oct. 17. The event, celebrated during National Arts and Humanities Month, brings together contemporary art spaces in downtown Fort Lauderdale through interactive exhibitions, presentations and live mural painting.
From 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., a behind-the-scenes exhibit of Mockingbird Trail will be on view at Cadence Pop-Up Gallery. There, guests can gain insight into the making of the trail, including the art installations by Yamamoto.
For those who will be exploring Mockingbird Trail, volunteers will be at each sculpture site to assist with any questions. Field guides are also available at each stop, or online for download at mockingbirdtrail.com.
South Florida residents are encouraged to share their photos of Mockingbird Trail using the hashtags #readytoroam and #talesfromthetrail.
