February 22, 2019
Coral Springs, FL –
On February 22, 2019, the Coral Springs Museum of Art received the Greenspoon Marder Non-Profit Organization of the Year – Arts Award at 2-1-1 Broward’s 9th Annual Community Care Plan Non-Profit Awards event held at the Signature Grand. Nominated alongside two other Broward-based nonprofit organizations, the Coral Springs Museum of Art was selected as the award recipient due to the Museum’s significant contributions to the health and vibrancy of the larger community through arts programming. Moreover, the Museum demonstrated the ability to enhance awareness of and support for the arts through providing arts programming not typically represented in a museum environment.
“The entire team at the Museum strives to make art available to everyone and we are honored to be recognized by our fellow community stakeholders for the work we are doing,” said Julia Andrews, Executive Director of the Coral Springs Museum of Art.
Following the tragedy that forever-changed our Broward community on February 14, 2018, the Coral Springs Museum of Art immediately became a refuge for teachers, parents, and students affected by the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Throughout the days of February 15 and February 16, the Museum served as one of the acute crisis centers and welcomed a countless number of individuals in need of support. While the temporary crisis center was short term, the need for healing was not. Because of this, the Coral Springs Museum of Art rallied its partners and developed an innovative art-making program for therapeutic purposes. The result, Healing with Art, a program that continues to serve students, teachers, administrators, parents and community members in need of healing.
“Every program that we develop is intentional. We want our community to know that no matter what obstacles you are trying to overcome, the Museum is a place that offers tranquility and inspiration.”
In addition to Healing with Art, the Coral Springs Museum of Art also offers a variety of other programming and events to bring people from different backgrounds, abilities and income levels together. Some of these programs include; complimentary artist meet and greet receptions, Art for Warriors, the Kaleidoscope program, ArtFull Saturday, and Summer in the Studio.
The Coral Springs Museum of Art is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the Museum’s programming and events call (954) 340-5000 or visit www.coralspringsmuseum.org.
