Pompano Beach Cultural Center

Installation artist Ya Levy La’ford, best known for her signature use of wall-to-wall recurring geometric, returns to South Florida’s Pompano Beach Cultural Arts Center activating the exhibition space with a large-scale installation to debit new virtual reality installations along with geometric sculptures relishing in abstract forms, imagery and reflections.

South Florida based mixed-media artist Lori Arbel is an active art maker in the sense that she doesn’t use an easel, but instead she lays the surface on the table of her studio, constantly moving around it, working from each side and angle until the artwork is complete.
