“Broward County’s Eco-Communities”

This graphic from the Art Plan shows Broward County’s ten eco-communities including beach. coastal strand, scrub, hammock, mangrove, everglades, pine flatwoods, and city. Recommended artworks draw upon the eco-communities in which they are located. “A Theater of Regeneration” is part of a $400 million bond issue which aims to: (1) preserve and reclaim approximately 1,425 acres of conservation land, green space and open space and (2) repair and enhance the County’s aging park system. The Art Plan conceptualizes, locates, and links a series of environmental art projects that become both stage set and player in the unfolding drama of landscape ecology. Focusing on the story of water from everglades to ocean, the projects weave together three themes: layers of meaning, loops of physical and process-based connections, and lenses of jewel-like artworks, performances, and activities. The drama and dynamics set in motion by this interplay will yield “A Theater of Regeneration”.
