Business for the Arts Broward Hosts Virtual Visit With Mixed Media Artist Duo We Are Nice’n Easy

Free event is part of the Arts Mean Business Speaker Series

Business for the Arts Broward (BFA) announces a free virtual visit with mixed media artist duo We Are Nice’n Easy on Tuesday, August 4 from 5 to 6 p.m. as part of the Arts Mean Business Speaker Series (AMB).

Participants who want to attend the Zoom presentation and Q&A are required to send their RSVP to [email protected] to receive the invitation link.

A collaborative endeavor by South Florida-based artists Allison Matherly and Jeffrey Noble, We Are Nice’n Easy focuses on creating immersive mixed media installations and developing a visually cohesive subtropical vernacular with their material choices and use of repeated motifs. Often referencing themes of self-help, recovery and interpersonal dependency, their fabricated environments utilize romantic tropes to enhance the collective emotive truisms between participants and create a platform for intimate exchange.

We Are Nice’n Easy has had several public art projects throughout South Florida commissioned by Broward County Art in Public Places, Miami-Dade Art in Public Places, Miami Beach Art in Public Places, Bass Projects, Locust Projects, Downtown Hollywood Mural Project and others. The duo is currently working on an outdoor installation for the new Jackson Hospital in Doral and has received the Airie Artists in Residence in Everglades Fellowship in 2019 and the Best Mural of 2017 award by the Miami New Times for their Off the Deep End mural in Hollywood.

BFA continuously supports the local arts community and promotes local artists, cultural non-profits and diverse art-related projects. BFA annually hosts several events in addition to AMB, including Art & Soul, Art in the Workplace, Art Curation and Art+Stroll.
