Susanne Bartsch Will Present ‘Art-A-Porter’ At The Fourth Annual ARTOPIA In Fort Lauderdale
UPDATE: This event has been rescheduled for Nov. 2 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. due to Hurricane Irma.
Focused on art, couture and fun, the fourth annual ARTOPIA event will be held on Nov. 2 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The Galleria Mall in Fort Lauderdale.
The highlight of the evening will be Susanne Bartsch, the iconic New York nightlife event producer, who will present the “Art-A-Porter” as part of the GLBX Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce’s event.
“Art-A-Porter,” created by Susanne Bartsch and sponsored by the Greater Fort Lauderdale’s Film, Music, Fashion & Create division of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be a centerpiece of human art, outlandish couture and unconventional personalities. “Art-A-Porter” is a combination of wearable art, high-fashion and performances.
The over-the-top entertainment, live artist experiences and visual arts and interactive elements will come together on stage as models strike poses in cutting-edge couture, forming the “Art-A-Porter” envisioned by Bartsch.
Other artistic elements of ARTOPIA will include short film presentations at part of the OUTshine Film Festival, choral performances by the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida, mini-theater drama productions by Island City Stage, a body painting exhibition by Amber LaValle and portraits by Lori Pratico.
Donations will go to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and the GLBX Arts Fund, with a portion of proceeds going to the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida, Stonewall National Museum & Archives, Island City Stage and OUTshine Film Festival.
