"Funding art, theater, music, film, and cultural development through community outreach by providing subsidies for productions, events, artists and musicians to carry out their mission."
After multiple community projects to revitalize the Town of Lake Park through the arts, specifically our renowned mural projects, we are now furthering our efforts through receiving our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Founded in 1919, the original Kelsey City (now Lake Park) was a cultural hub and we are continuing Harry Kelsey's vision by cultivating The Lake Park Arts District.
BUILDING A COMMUNITY
FOSTERING THE ARTS
Recently named 2017 Young Professional of the Year, Brockman is a highly esteemed entrepreneur and visionary in the Town of Lake Park. He is an award winning digital artist who has been wheelchair-bound since the age of two due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy. In 2012 he had the honor of painting a family portrait of former President Barack Obama. AJ has always viewed himself as being "differently abled" rather than "disabled" and lives life to the fullest every day.
Currently serving as the co-owner of The Brewhouse Gallery & The Kelsey Theater, he has revitalized an entire community through art with the birth of The Lake Park Arts District. His crowning achievement is the over 900-foot continuous mural (taking up an entire city block) which is one of the largest mural projects in South Florida.
Brockman is no stranger to the nonprofit world and spent most of his childhood, raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and countless other organizations. Kelsey Cares was the natural progression, to create a legitimate 501(c)(3) to further his vision. He has already raised over $75,000 without any subsidies or government incentives (with average donation levels of less than $100), which just shows the number of people that have been impacted. See those projects continue to come to life and continue to support our efforts by donating.
