I.W.A.N. - An Artist's Mecca In Our Own Back Yard!


Fort Lauderdale, FL – IWAN is the Independent Working Artists Network founded by the dynamic visionary duo of Garo Gallo and Yvonne Colón. Together, they created a concept production facility called The Bubble and dedicated the enormous gallery space and grounds to the promotion and solidification of the local art community.  

With two stages and 3,000 square feet of art filled walls, The Bubble is a little slice of art heaven and the perfect place to meet, greet, display, record and create. It also serves as the hub for the artist’s to reach inspired audiences with a direct route to art and music consumers by putting them all together under one roof in an innovative promotion and marketing vehicle.  

It was a hot and humid Saturday night at The Bubble in Fort Lauderdale and yet I was transported from space and time by a dynamic music and light show as I watched live body art in progress. With a nice array of beer and wine to sweeten the deal, The Bubble is definitely a hip and hyper-local spot to take in the arts and the hottest beats of the music scene. The IWAN mission statement reads “We take you–not where you want to go, but to places you never thought possible,” and it’s true. There’s a little Bubble of creativity tucked away downtown that is brimming with talent and culture. Put it on your must see list!
