This Mic's For You
by John Thomason

Broward Palm Beach NEW TIMES

For a long time, Boynton Beach has seemed like Palm Beach County's local equivalent of flyover country -- a culturally bereft land of housing developments and Walmarts sandwiched between the hip enclaves of Delray Beach and Lake Worth. Not anymore, if Rolando Chang Barrero has anything to do about it. And he does, every day, through his gallery, ActivistArtistA, part of a flourishing arts district blossoming from the unlikely confines of an industrial-warehouse row. In addition to bringing alternative, Wynwood-style exhibitions to Boynton, ActivistArtistA hosted its first open-mic night two weeks ago, part of Barrero's vision to transform the area into a cultural marketplace. The free outdoor affair attracted renowned tattoo artist Lea Vendetta, along with rap, rock, and folk musicians from across the county. Look for more of the same at Thursday's open mic, from 7 to 10 p.m., as the reputation of this exciting space continues to grow. The gallery is located at 422 W. Industrial Ave. in Boynton Beach. Interested performers should RSVP by emailing or calling 786-521-1199.
