Hot Topics: Shamim M. Momin from Art and Culture Center on Vimeo.

To share the work of dynamic, national visual artists by hosting "Hot Topic," an ongoing lecture series.

To foster conversation around the visual arts, the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood will host an ongoing lecture series featuring nationally and internationally recognized artists. Audiences will not only hear the artist’s stories, but learn about the trends influencing the direction of contemporary visual art. The project builds upon the center’s previous Knight Arts Challenge grant that establishes a series of Hot Topics discussions.

The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood is an independent nonprofit that operates visual arts galleries in the 1924 Kagey House, an Art School adjacent to the main facility, and a 500-seat theater in downtown Hollywood. The center, incorporated in 1978, is one of eight organizations designated a Major Cultural Institution by the Broward Cultural Division. Each year, ACCH presents more than a dozen contemporary gallery exhibitions; more than 70 arts-education programs for children and adults; and the free or low-cost Family Performance Series.
