Three Jamaican artists will show their work at “The Island Imprint: The Art and History of the Caribbean Community in Broward County”, an art and historical exhibition from June 15th to 29th at History Fort Lauderdale in The New River Inn. The exhibit will also be presented virtually on cultural non-profit Island SPACE’s website.


Photo artist and curator David I. Muir will show a selection of photos printed on canvas from his “Caribbean-American” collection, with Caribbean scenes from Broward county; mixed media artist Krystle Sabdul’s work will be a variety of expressive, oversized portraits; and Calibe Thompson has curated a historical component that traces the Caribbean community’s roots in Broward in news clippings, archival photos and information on the influence of diverse island people of Greater Fort Lauderdale.


 “Our goal with The Island Imprint project is to showcase art, history and our region’s untold stories as a unique collective, and to stimulate further discussion on diversity and culture,” says Thompson, who is also executive director of Island SPACE.
