ART BENEFITING LIFE Before Rolando Chang Barrero and a clutch of other artists moved into the industrial area that now occupies the Boynton Beach Art District, it was a nondescript row of warehouses not unlike any of the others that dot the landscape along I-95. Fast-forward almost five years and instead of the gritty storage spaces being occupied with random car parts and stuff we no longer need, a burgeoning arts scene flourishes inside of their interiors, helped greatly by the monthly BBAD’s Art Walk. It is the definition of art making a difference. This month, “Art Making a Difference” is the central theme and title of the walk that takes place in the 400 block of West Industrial Avenue in Boynton Beach. The free walk — once deemed Best Art Walk by the staff at New Times — includes open studios, open-mic performances, live art, food and drink, vendors, and much more. “The concentration from everybody is to build community throughout and to build community between artist and layperson,” Barrero says. “We have no anchors here. No bars or businesses to attract people, so it’s strictly arts and community that keeps us going.” And the community has pulled together, donating lighting and greenery to spruce up the area. Commissioned murals on display include Chan Shepherd’s latest graffiti-inspired piece on Jesus Christ. The night runs from 6 to 10 p.m. The art walk is now operating on a summer schedule of every fourth Thursday of the month, so if you miss tonight, you’ll have to wait another 30 days for your creative fix.
