Arnold Newman: Masterclass

Over the course of nearly seven decades, Arnold Newman (1918–2006) created iconographic portraits of some of the most influential innovators, celebrities, and cultural figures of the twentieth century. The first major exhibition of the photographer's work since his death, Arnold Newman: Masterclass, examines the evolution of his singular vision, from the informal portraits, cityscapes, documentary images, and design studies of his early career to the "environmental portraiture" style for which he would become famous. Through more than 200 of his well-known photographs of famous sitters, including JFK, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Marc Chagall, Igor Stravinsky, and Marilyn Monroe, along with manuscripts, correspondence, business records, and magazine tear sheets, Masterclass invites the viewers to explore the life, career, and art of this important and prolific master of the photographic image.

Charles McGill: Front Line, Back Nine

The first major museum exhibition of artist Charles McGill explores his fascination with the subject and objects of golf and provides a thought provoking means for us to examine race and social differences in our community. Included are golf bags adorned with collages of imagery of black history and popular culture from the artist’s Baggage series; golf bags dissected and manipulated into soft sculpture constructions in his Skinned series, in which rain hoods designed to keep clubs dry recall KKK hoods and zippers and straps summon up ideas of bondage and servitude; as well as works created for McGill’s performance projects including his golf pro “alter ego” Arthur Negro, ironic line of sporting equipment Club Negro, and pop-up Former Black Militant Golf and Country Club.

The Boca Raton Museum of Art is surrounded by no less than 76 golf courses within a 10-mile radius, most of which form the centerpieces of gated, mostly white and upper-income communities. Meanwhile, in walking distance to the Museum, is Boca Raton’s pioneering African-American community of Pearl City. Through artist residency activities, McGill (an experienced educator and exceptional speaker) will bring together Boca Raton’s black and white residents for artist-at-work demonstrations, collaborative community art-making workshops, and performances inspired by a game that is central to our community’s identity.

Bob Colacello: In and Out with Andy

As a fixture of the wild, glamorous, disco-and-drugs-driven world of Andy Warhol, Bob Colacello was perfectly positioned to record the frenetic pace of the 70's-era Factory scene. This first major museum exhibition of Colacello's candid photos includes vintage prints and selections from his book, OUT.

A New Path: Two Installations in the Colonnade

This Color is Great by Renata Stih and Frieder Schnock

Stih & Schnock are Berlin-based visual artists who introduce art in public spaces thereby affecting everyday life.

In this work, the artists have used the common expression of a woman’s lips and what she might be saying in contrast to what she is actually thinking. This is the first in a series of artist-commissioned banners along the Amphitheater colonnade that dramatically changes a familiar path as the visitor approaches the Museum.

The Pursuit of Happiness by Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt

Behar and Marquardt, who established R&R Studios in Miami, have a multidisciplinary architectural practice weaving together visual arts, exhibition design, architecture, and urban design. They have been commissioned to rethink the entry into the Museum along the colonnade, providing a new pathway that is at once intimate and monumental. Their installation incorporates multi-colored ribbons in the interior gallery windows, draping the space making it both public and private by way of the sensual sway of vivid colors.

As part of this project, R&R Studios has redesigned the Museum Store, which stands as the “cornerstone” of the Museum, the first space the visitor sees upon entering the building where the colonnade and the courtyard intersect. The Store reopened to the public on November 1, 2014. The Store features one of a kind and limited edition works for sale by local, national, and international artists and artisans along with exhibition-specific merchandise, trunk shows, and author events.

Making Connections: Selections from the Boca Museum and Private Collections

The Boca Museum of Art’s internationally recognized (and ever-growing) Permanent Collection includes over 5,000 works of art and is featured throughout the building and sculpture garden.

With strong holdings in late 19th and 20th century European and American prints, drawings, painting, sculpture, and photography, the Museum strives to present key examples of Modernism as well as non-western art and artifacts in our African and Pre-Columbian collections.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard


On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
