Art Walk Coming to Hallandale Beach
Artist's Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Xavier's Cigar Lounge is please to announce the official launch of Hallandale Art Walk to be held January 10th and the second Saturday of every month thereafter.
Hallandale Art Walk was founded by creative genius Harris Safra the President of Creative Ad SpecialTeez along with the help of Jay Shapiro of Artists Chamber of Commerce. Harris is a cigar enthusiast who recently opened up an artisanal boutique cigar lounge at RK Plaza in Hallandale Beach. Part of the marketing plan for Xavier's Cigar Lounge (named after his grandson) was to host monthly events with free food, live music etc. After a couple very successful events with over 200 people in attendance Harris realized that the plaza itself is large enough to host an art walk and all of the businesses in the plaza will benefit as well as local artisans and the municipality of Hallandale Beach will also benefit via increased monthly tax base.
The January event will feature free food, live music, art booths on display and entertainment.
RK Plaza is located at 800 East Hallandale Beach Blvd
Cost for exhibitor space is only $35.00
ffi: or to exhibit at the event please contact Harris Safra at: 754-366-0242
