As the only participating social services agency, The Arc will join a host of art and cultural organizations to celebrate the whimsical drawings and legacy of Dr. Seuss. A special collection of the author’s works will be on display throughout The Gardens Mall, and to add to the experience, local nonprofits will showcase their work and art, alongside the exhibit. The Arc invites everyone to visit its one-of-a-kind, interactive “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” experience, where guests can decorate cupcakes, have their photos taken, help create a Dr. Seuss-themed mosaic with clients from The Arc and become an artisan for the day.

Saturday, February 13 10:00am | Family Events

Through The Arc’s adult employment program, clients create beautiful and unique, handcrafted mosaics. Each mosaic represents the time and effort of an adult with developmental disabilities who is learning critical skills to be a productive employee. The mosaics, which are representative of South Florida colors and wildlife, will be on sale at ArtiGras, ranging in price from $20-$250. This is the third year at ArtiGras that The Arc’s artisans have sold and demonstrated how to create their art pieces, which make lovely gifts and home accents. Customers can also commission customized mosaics.
