Italian Futurists Featured at Boca Museum of Art Exhibition
Published Monday, December 30, 2013

Boca Raton, FL - A collection of 38 works from Italian Futurists is on display at the Boca Museum of Art through March 30, 2014. The exhibition, Futurism: Concepts and Imaginings, is on display concurrent with the Pop Art exhibition, Pop Culture, Collections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.

Futurism: Concepts and Imaginings features seven Italian artists from the first (1908-1919) and second (1920s-1930s) waves of Futurism, a dynamic artistic and social movement that glorified the energy and speed of modern life. These artists were advocates of modern marvels like locomotives, automobiles, and airplanes; and heralded the death of museum’s and libraries as outmoded institutions of culture in their paintings, drawings, performances, and poetry.

The exhibition is composed of works from the collection of Steve and Carole Acunto. According to Mr. Acunto, who also serves as Honorary Vice Consul for Italy in New York, the Futurist art represents an important advance in the embracement of the modern, industrial, and urbanized world in Italy before, during, and after World War I.

“Italy was transformed rapidly from an agrarian society centered upon extraordinary international cities to an industrial age power with important cities growing in every province. The Italian Futurists captured the zeitgeist; they did not look backward sentimentally toward the 1800s, but instead worked parallel to the emerging Cubists, Surrealists, and other movements in early twentieth century Europe that were transforming art and changing artistic sensibility,” said Acunto.

Futurism: Concepts and Imaginings include art by Giacomo Balla, Alberto Bragaglia, Roberto Crippa, Giulio d'Anna, Gerardo Dottori, Pippo Rizzo, and Lucio Venna. The vibrant colors and striking imagery of the artwork truly expresses the Futurist dedication to depicting energy and motion and are central to understanding the trajectory of artistic movements of Cubism and Divisionism. The subjects of many pieces are circus performers constantly in motion; the perfect milieu for the Futurists to capture.

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)
