WMODA will be diving into the Dania Beach Arts & Seafood Celebration on May 19th and 20th at Frost Park. At the 6th annual award-winning event, visitors from all over South Florida will experience the energy and revitalization of Downtown Dania Beach, City Center, and the Design, Arts & Vintage districts. The Wiener Museum has made a big splash in the cultural renaissance of Broward’s first city and we beat the beach to become number one of things to do in Dania Beach according to Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel site.
The Dania Beach Arts & Seafood Celebration weekend will be packed with exciting entertainment. Meet inspiring local artists and shop for unique crafts, listen to live music and taste all the delicious seafood provided by Dania’s great restaurants. Look out for the WMODA booth where we will be giving away FREE museum passes for friends who sign up for our VIP Highlights e-newsletter.
WMODA features a wide range of ceramic art and studio glass inspired by all the wonders of the deep which you can enjoy all year round. In the Victorian Majolica gallery, you can see our bizarre Boy with Lobster, together with lots of quirky serving dishes for fresh seafood, including oyster plates, sardine boxes and lobster tureens.
In the Royal Doulton gallery, you can check out our Boy on a Dolphin conceived for a terracotta playing fountain. There are also figures of fisherfolk and pottery plaques depicting watery subjects both real and imagined. Mermaids have inspired many porcelain artists, particularly during the Art Deco era of the roaring 1920s when there were many fantasy studies of sea-life, such as Lenci’s Nude on a Fish.
Water is also one of the Four Elements highlighted in our Cabinet of Curiosities exhibition, where you can see some extraordinary ocean travelers by Ardmore from South Africa and contemporary ceramics by marine biologist turned potter, Roger Cockram. Check out our Chihuly gallery also for some fishy glass sculptures by the Murano maestro Pino Signoretto.
