About the Artist in the Spotlight Program
The Artist in the Spotlight program, championed by Councilwoman Jenifer Bailey, was created in 2010 by Councilman Stephen Shelley and is curated to highlight the talents of local artists and allow them to showcase their artwork to the local community. If you are interested in participating or know of a local artist in the area from Broward, Dade, or Monroe Counties, please contact Councilwoman Bailey’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org with contact information and a sample of the artwork to be submitted. Artists who live in or near the City of Homestead will be given preference.
