City & Shore Magazine

ArtServe kicks off a socially conscious season with a celebration of Africa during Black History Month. Through Feb. 27, Roots of the Spirit: Soulful Expressions of the African Diaspora is a multimedia exhibition and performance series that explores African customs and aesthetics — from ancient traditions to works produced exclusively for this show — and themes such as ancestral memory, colonization and climate gentrification. Some 25 artists from Nigeria, Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica and the United States are presented in the Fort Lauderdale non-profit’s exhibition, complemented by Imagine Puppets, a national collection of handmade figures by contemporary African-American artists.
