“Art Meets Hollywood”-Bonnie Lautenberg at Boca Raton Museum of Art

July 10, 2022

By Karen Hedeen Choudhury for Splash Magazine

 In her new exhibition “Art Meets Hollywood” showing at the Boca Raton Museum of Art through August 21, 2022, Bonnie Lautenberg compares art as it captures the mood of a particular time period. It is a visceral examination of two artistic presentations via a snapshot in time though a creative use of diptychs, an ancient writing tablet form using two flat plates which make a pair often attached by hinge. It is a history of art from 1928 to 2020 seen though film and painting.

Through these 28 diptychs, Ms. Lautenberg compares a film and a painting created within the same year as each depicts the culture, fashion, and emotional tenor of that year. Although it is just the moment in time that they share, the viewer can see the influence on both the filmmaker and the painter. Three examples:

Madison Rd. sculpture finds new home at Richmond, Ind.'s Earlham College

April 25, 2022 - Tana Weingartner

91.7 WVXU | By Tana Weingartner

A large-scale abstract sculpture by contemporary artist Rob Lorenson is now a centerpiece on Earlham College's campus in Richmond, Indiana.

"Absolutely beautiful — it's about nine feet tall, and it's in that classic red-orange color that's similar to classic works by artists like Alexander Calder and Keith Haring," explains Christian Adams, art curator for Earlham. "It's set at the entrance to our campus in front of the chemistry and science and technology buildings with 'the heart' — which is the center of our campus — in the background."

Lorenson is a faculty member at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts. His large-scale metal sculptures "explore the relationships of space," according to a statement. The artist was in Richmond during the installation and met with faculty and students and heard their insights on the piece.

Questlove Will Be Hosting a Major Hip-Hop Brunch This Weekend in Dallas

April 15, 2022 - Eric Diep

This is now a statement of fact: In terms of music consumption, hip-hop surpasses rock as the most popular genre. Hip-hop is younger than rock by two decades, and the date of its exact birth is far easier to pinpoint. It happened on Aug. 11, 1973, when DJ Kool Herc held his famous birthday party in the recreation room of an apartment building in the Bronx.

Approaching 49 this year, the history of hip-hop and its influence in popular culture have been broken down plenty through documentaries, TV series, books and oral histories, but rarely have fans seen it presented through symphonic and visual grandeur.

On April 16 at The Factory in Deep Ellum, Questlove, Oscar-winning documentarian, drummer, DJ, producer, New York Times best-selling author and member of The Roots, will bring a new meaning to weekend brunch. He will host Hip-Hop Brunch: A Visual Journey Through Hip-Hop along with some help from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The experience is a one-of-kind collaboration that employs the visual artistry of two Dallas-based artists: JM Rizzi and Jeremy Biggers.

April 14, 2022

via VoyageMIA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Max Steven Grossman.

Hi Max Steven, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?


After finishing high school in Bogota, Colombia where I’m originally from, I didn’t know what career I wanted to follow in my life. My dad worked in textiles so I studied textile engineering in Philadelphia. After college, I took a six months trip to Southeast Asia this trip opened my eyes to the wonders of nature and how beautiful our world is. I returned to Colombia and I started working with my dad very soon I was feeling office life was not something I desired. I fortunately found a camera canon A-1 film camera in the office and started to take photography classes. From then on all I wanted was the weekends to come so I could leave the city and take nature pictures.

TOWN OF DAVIE PARTNERS WITH BROWARD COUNTY TO INSTALL THE “SILHOUETTE HERD” PUBLIC ART PIECE located at Pine Island Pocket Park

January 13, 2022

DAVIE, Fla. – In collaboration with the Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art and Design program, the Town of Davie welcomed a new art piece, the “Silhouette Herd”, at the Pine Island Pocket Park located on the northeast corner of Pine Island Road and SW 21st Street. 

Created by artist Wendy Klemperer, the “Silhouette Herd” sculptures of five galloping horses measure between 6 to 12 feet tall and are made of steel, treated with a variety of patina to depict different colors. The art was selected for its resonance with Davie’s rural atmosphere, western theme and equestrian lifestyle.

Boca Raton: Sculptures with coastal pizzazz picked for rebuilt parks

December 1, 2021 - Mary Hladky

With construction of Silver Palm Park in the downtown finally underway and work at the adjacent Wildflower Park slated to start soon, the parks’ art components have been selected. Two sculptures will be loaned to the city by the Boca Raton Museum of Art and will be placed along the waterfront in each park. The artists are Jane Manus of West Palm Beach and Jeff Whyman of Delray Beach.

The city is commissioning two other works by artists with May + Watkins Design of Athens, New York, that will be located at the corners of each park closest to the intersection of Palmetto Park Road and Fifth Avenue. They will be similar and are intended to thematically connect the two parks while representing nature and the coast.

The aluminum works, both over 10 feet tall, depict leaves and flowers in pastel shades of green, yellow and blue with accents of bright coral. The one destined for Silver Palm Park will incorporate that tree. Both will be illuminated, Jennifer Bistyga, the city’s coastal program manager, told the council on Nov. 22.
