Hollywood-based visual artist and curator and animal lover will be participating at Bark Walk, an artwalk event presented by Girls’ Club.

Bark Walk is an artwalk event for all the dog-lovers in South Florida that welcomes our special furry, four-legged friends too, to benefit Pets Broward, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving shelter pets and creating a community where all pets and people are valued and treated with respect, kindness, and compassion.

The event will feature dog-themed art exhibition Best in Show with multi-media works from local artists, dog and kid friendly art making activities, kiddie pools for all species, and a heart-melting Adoptable Dog Parade of the most adorable and eligible doggy bachelors and bachelorettes looking for forever homes.

BarkWalk takes place Saturday, May 26, 5-8pm during the last Saturday artwalk in the shops along the north edge NE 2 Avenue in Flagler Village, Fort Lauderdale. The event is free and open to the public. Well-behaved pets welcomed and encouraged to join.

A new hot spot in Fort Lauderdale, the shops along NE 2 Avenue and Flagler Drive (Flagler Uptown) recently opened for business this year with a craft coffee roaster and cafe Wells Coffee, a fit-focused swim shop Montce Swim, high-intensity functional HIIT studio The Fit Shop, a creative-thin. king hair salon Form Hair Studio, the working artist studio of Madeline Denaro and the city’s only private art collection/alternative art space Girls’ Club Collection.

Bark Walk activities will benefit Pets Broward, with a portion of proceeds going to the non profit organization, who will also host an Adoption / Foster info booth for visitors learn more about the adoption and foster program and meet their crew of friendly, furry faces looking for new families. Pets Broward will lead the Adoptable Dog Parade, introducing each pup and highlighting their unique personalities, backgrounds and lovable quirks.

The Bark Walk coincides with the last Saturday artwalk, connecting with the FATVillage and the MASS District art neighborhoods of Fort Lauderdale for an epic evening out. Trolleys available for visitors to transport between parking lots to various barkwalk and artwalk venues.
