Inflatable Art Across Broward County
Broward Cultural Division presents: Searching for Giants
As a lead-up to the 2019 Riptide Music Festival (Nov. 23-24), giant inflatable art is being displayed in all nine Broward County Commission districts and we want YOU to find them!
Share your photos of the art on Instagram and tag @BrowardArts along with #ArtAcrossBroward to win tickets to Riptide Music Festival in November. One lucky winner at each location will receive two Riptide “Meet the Band” passes.
Due to hurricane season in Florida, it is possible that the sculptures may have to be temporarily deflated due to high winds. If you arrive and a sculpture is deflated, we encourage you to wait 15 minutes or come back a little later. When the winds calm down, the sculpture will be reflated. You may still post your tagged photo for entry into the contest.
Our Final Destination!
Presented by Broward Cultural Division, in partnership with the Broward County Board of County Commissioners, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Entercom.
About the Artists
The inflatable sculptures displayed in “Searching for Giants” were created by Giants in the City, an internationally recognized collective dedicated to bringing the vision and talent of a multidisciplinary group of contemporary artists out of the galleries and museums to public places around the world.
The presentation of the artwork celebrates Broward County’s unique heritage and diverse cultures, as well as its more than 40-year history of promoting public art.
