Pembroke Pines Curator of Special Projects
Jill Slaughter Named Among
100 Outstanding Women of Broward County
Jill Slaughter, Curator of Special Projects City of Pembroke Pines, has been named one of 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. Slaughter will be acknowledged at a dinner which recognizes women in leadership roles in the business, community and philanthropic fields.’ A curator of special projects City for the City of Pembroke Pines, Slaughter is “Dedicated to shaping a community in Pembroke Pines which offers a wide range of cultural opportunities, and community engagement for the enrichment of all its residents.”
Among a number of very enterprising projects, The Annual Sincerity Project, now in its third year, was established by Slaughter in 2011 to bring together dozens of established and mid-career artists and special needs groups. Each artist creates an original work of art based on the theme and parameters that Slaughter provides, and the art made is available for interpretation by special needs artists. This year the theme is HOME.
Slaughter is also in the beginning stages of an art project to help fight obesity. The New Horizons Project is an interactive artist designed mini-golf course and mural project designed to combat the problem of obesity. Slaughter has curated well known South Florida artists and partnered with the non-profit organization FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth) in support of the New Horizon Project.
