Centennial Photomontages

Teaching Local History Through Photographs

As part of the exciting Centennial Celebration, the City created a unique photomontage that tells the history of Fort Lauderdale through images.

The photomontage is a public education project that uses visual media to project historic images on blank exterior walls of buildings throughout the City. The stunning, larger-than-life images used in the show are a collection of diverse pictures from the archives of the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, Old Dillard Museum and personal photos submitted by local residents.

There are eight different, five-minute segments that include historic images from each City Commission District and photos that tie into playful themes, such as “Tropical Wonderland” and “Playground of the Stars.” Fort Lauderdale resident Uriel Natero composed the original music that accompanies the shows.

The City of Fort Lauderdale collaborated on the project with Wil Shriner Productions and the Broward County Film Society, Inc.
