The GLBX Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce invites you to ARTOPIA IV presented by JM Lexus . Now in its fourth year, this evening of over-the-top entertainment, live artist experiences, visual arts and interactive elements will merge to create an artrageous spectacle.

Enjoy a headline musical performance by chart-topping pop artist Wrabel, the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and musician best known for his 2014 hit song “Ten Feet Tall,” a collaboration with Afrojack.

New York City nightlife icon Susanne Bartsch will present “Art-A-Porter,” sponsored by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Film, Music, Fashion & Create division. Emerging fashion designers from New York City will strike a pose as models of their own cutting-edge couture. Each artist is his/her own designer, dresser and make-up artist. This living art presentation will include movements and motion set to music based on the character and style of each fashion artist. Once onstage, they will form an unusual and surprising tableau of human “Art-A-Porter” as envisioned by Susanne.

The evening will also feature short film presentations as part of OUTshine Film Festival, choral performances by the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida, mini-theater drama productions by Island City Stage, a body painting exhibition by Amber LaValle and portraits by Lori Pratico. An exhibit by internationally recognized artist Romero Britto will be on display with works for sale to benefit the event’s philanthropies.
