Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power

Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965) was born in Poland and immigrated – via Australia and Paris – to New York at the beginning of World War I. She then opened her first U.S. salon featuring her face cream made from lanolin and revolutionized the cosmetics industry. She sold her corporation to Lehman Brothers in 1928 but repurchased the stock and went on to open her acclaimed spa on Fifth Avenue along with salons across the country, and the manufacturing arm.

A collector of people and art, she commissioned Salvador Dalí to design packaging for her compacts and to paint her portrait. He was not the only one to paint Ms. Rubinstein, and this show includes portraits by Picasso, Man Ray, and Warhol.

Included are paintings by Miró and Chagall, and selections from her fine jewelry and couture clothing collections. Vintage advertisements, photographs of her residences in New York, Paris, and London, and her spas and salons will bring to the fore Ms. Rubinstein as a savvy businessperson and cultural icon.

Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power is organized by the Jewish Museum, New York. 

The exhibition is made possible by The Jerome L. Greene Foundation.

Roberto Montenegro, Helena Rubinstein in a Mexican Silver Necklace, 1941. Oil on canvas, 31 ½ x 27 12/16 in. National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC.

Shannon Plumb: What A Character

Shannon Plumb’s solo exhibition of short videos and Super-8 films is inspired by the spirit of slapstick comedy and the physical humor of iconic silent screen legends such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Plumb creates and plays a diverse cast of characters such as Olympic athletes, cowboys, and advertising announcers, employing a low-fi asthetic with long takes and hand-made props and costumes.

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Izhar Patkin: You Tell Us What to Do

Israeli-born, New York based artist, Izhar Patkin, fills the Museum's gallery space with spectacular mural-size paintings on tulle fabric.

Grand, labyrinthine, yet surprisingly intimate the space is resplendent with personal narrative, political metaphor, and myth emphasizing memory, loss, love, and exile.

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Hammock Pointe Partnership: Express Yourself
Writing about art can be as fun as making it. The Museum's partnership with Hammock Pointe Elementary takes a new twist with a new, fully integrated curriculum-based project for third graders centered on ekphrasis, a technique of writing vivid descriptions of art. On display is the students' portraits and written work.

January 27 - May 10, 2015
 Abstraction on Paper

 

The next installment of the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s Making Connections: Selected Works from the Boca Raton Museum and Private Collections will include the in-focus exhibition: Abstraction on Paper. Delving into the Museum’s rich collection of works on paper, and featuring significant loans from generous members of the community, the exhibition presents a variety of media by American and European artists from the 1920s thru the 1950s. Superb works by American Abstract Artists Balcomb Greene, Gertrude Greene, Blanchs Lazzell, George L.K. Morris and John Sennhauser will mix with the Abstract Expressionist style of Mary Abbott, William Baziotes, Franz Kline and Richard Pousette-Dart and other Modernists such as Alexander Calder and Wassily Kandinsky. While all 20 works were created on paper, the media ranges from ink, gouache, pencil, watercolor to etching and drypoint.

 

Curated by Marisa J Pascucci, Curator of Collections.

 

Calder Alexander (American, born Philadelphia, PA, 1898-1976), Untitled, 1945, gouache on paper, 11 1/2 x 10 1/8 in., Acquired in 1992, Gift of Mrs. Edna K. Allen

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 is scheduled to open to the public on November 1, 2014. Vincent Tom is the Store’s merchandiser and will feature 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.

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)
