Afghan Rugs: The Contemporary Art of Central Asia

The international exhibition, Afghan Rugs: The Contemporary Art of Central Asia, features over 40 rugs from a private European collection, traveling for the first time to museums in North America. Selected for their exceptional quality and stunning imagery, the rugs in this exhibition represent a unique category in decorative arts. They constitute some of the most powerful visual inventions of the late 20th century and are skillfully crafted with hand-spun and dyed, tightly knotted wool.

These exquisitely woven works of art are designed with thoroughly untraditional motifs. Approximately half of the rugs—some produced well before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979—feature cityscapes, portraits, landscapes, and world maps, framed by tanks and helicopters. Other rugs in the include weapons and fighting scenes made by weavers in Afghanistan, or in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. No matter the central imagery, each rug is traditionally bounded by an intricately framed and detailed border design offering incredible works of art to be enjoyed on the floor as well as the wall.

Elaine Reichek: The Eye of the Needle

Knitted and embroidered artworks with a conceptual twist have made Elaine Reichek's artwork the subject of solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, The Jewish Museum of New York, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and other international venues.

The Boca Museum of Art presents an elegant exhibition focusing on the period of Reichek's art dating from 1972 to 1995. This body of work addresses the translation, and mis-translation, of artifacts from outside cultures and colonizers. Reichek finds, enlarges, and colors ethnographic and architectural photographs, pairing them with her own hand-knitted interpretations. Photographs of teepees, ceremonial dress, and others are juxtaposed with knitted forms that mimic the images found in them.

The use of knitting and embroidery (often denigrated as simply craft), rather than the usual art materials to produce contemporary art, is central to Reichek’s work. As she says, “the meaning of an artwork is always bound up with its media and processes and their history.”

The year-round program, Meet a Master, Create a Masterpiece Roadshow, affords under-served students at these locations the opportunity to learn about and create art

An Artistic Discovery: District 22 Congressional Student Art Exhibition

Each spring, a nationwide high school arts competition is sponsored by the members of the United States House of Representatives. The Congressional Student Art Competition is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in each Congressional district.

This exhibition presents the work of high school students residing in the 22nd Congressional District of Florida who have submitted their artwork to the office of Representative Lois Frankel, which is juried and then exhibited at the Boca Museum of Art. The student whose artwork is selected "Best in Show" in each district will travel to Washington D.C. and have his/her original artwork displayed in the nation's Capital building for one year.

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)
