The City of Pompano Beach is delighted to announce the official ribbon cutting ceremony for the Pompano Beach Cultural Center and Library took place on Thursday, May 11th.
“My hope is that the Center fills a niche that no one else can offer; providing educational opportunities with the media center; providing opportunities for new and upcoming artists to display their talents; offering a venue for weddings, private corporate events; and showcasing our all-around and well-rounded City as one of the finest in America,” said Mayor Lamar Fisher.
Following the ceremony, the venue was open to the public to view the World Premiere Cuban art exhibit, Shipwrecked of Reason: Half a Century in Cuban Art.
Guests also enjoyed live spontaneous performances throughout the building.
Thanks to the determination and foresight of City and County visionaries, Pompano Beach will join the ranks of other great municipalities who have a state-of-the-art facility which serves as a beacon for culture and learning. The two-story structure, which spans 47,000 square feet, will encompass the Cultural Center (which includes an art gallery, a digital media arts center and a flexible space for performances/special events) and the new Broward County Library, opening this fall.
