This place is amazing. The campus of three buildings dates back to roughly 1905 when the railroad was the cultural hub of Fort Lauderdale. Great for meetings and gallery browsing. The upper floors of the main building houses several artists in residence.
Amazing preservation of FTL history with a beautiful location on the river. Great programming, use of space, and New River Artist Co-operative on the 3rd Floor! Take the tours!
