Arnold Newman: Master Class

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 first community—the historically African American neighborhood 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.

Jane Benson: Finding Baghdad

Jane Benson’s poignant two-channel video Finding Baghdad (Part A) is about geo-cultural displacement, a topic particularly relevant today in the wake of largest mass migration since World War II. The video features two Iraqi brothers who escaped from Baghdad in the early 2000s; one to Cologne, Germany and the other to Sanad, Bahrain. The video begins with images of two traditional Iraqi instruments, an oud and a djoze, as they are split into two parts. The brothers play a duet, originally streamed over Skype, on their halves of the instruments that is shown on two separate screens. The distance between the brothers is poetically bridged if only for a moment.

65th Annual All Florida Exhibition

The Boca Raton Museum of Art is now changing the format of All Florida from the juried exhibition which has been presented here for 64 years. For 2016, the Museum’s Curatorial Department and Executive Director will collaborate with five nationally-recognized artists based throughout Florida. Each of these distinguished artists will select five early-career artists who have strong ties to Florida. This invitational exhibition will bring the work of the “selection committee” alongside the work of the artists they believe show great promise. See the 65th Annual All Florida selection committee.

Coming in fall of 2016:
Hungarian Art: A Century of Rebellion and Revival

This exhibition of art from Budapest includes 100 by Hungarian artists, including such figures as André Kertész and László Moholy-Nagy, and provides a fascinating microcosm of the social and political turmoil that was raging across Europe, from the late 19th century, through WWI and WWII to the collapse of the Soviet Era, giving rise to the birth of the avant-garde.

Coming in fall of 2016:

This exhibition will feature a site-specific installation by the artist collective, RPM. The 3 Miami-based artists–Rhonda Mitrani, Patricia Gutierrez, and Marina Font–will use their mixed media installation to comment on the canon of Western art history and its history of promoting European male artists while relegating women and non-Europeans to the status of subjects. As Cuban, American and Argentinian artists, RPM brings a thoughtful, fresh and edgy take to the seminal aspects of art we have come to revere.

Coming in fall of 2016:
Jose Alvarez: Portraits from Krome Detention Center

Jose Alvarez (D.O.P.A.) was detained in Krome Detention Center for identity theft two months in 2012. During this time he created a series of portraits of his fellow detainees using ballpoint pens and whatever paper he could find. The portraits not only capture the physical being of his sitters, but also their stories. This exhibition will mark the debut of these powerful, intimate portraits and emotional stories.

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)
