“MATERIALIZE” celebrates the work of South Florida artists with an appreciation of the art object, its textures and its functionality. The exhibition “materializes” an empty storefront on Lincoln Road into a design art object presentation of work by South Florida-based artists. The exhibition is curated by Meaghan Kent, curator of exhibitions at the Art and Culture Center/ Hollywood and directed by Laura Marsh, Oolite Arts’ director of programming with Michelle Lisa Polissaint, Oolite Arts’ education and community engagement manager, and Amanda Bradley, programs manager.

The works will be for sale both in person in a socially distanced way and also online starting Nov. 28 at
