Izhar Patkin: The Wandering Veil

This survey of works by the Israeli-born, New York based artist, Izhar Patkin, will fill the Museum's main gallery space with spectacular mural-size paintings on tulle fabric, entitled Veiled Threats.

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

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Izhar Patkin (Israeli, born 1955), You Tell Us What to Do [detail], 2010, ink on pleated tulle curtains, 14 x 22 x 28 feet

Surrealism and Magic

An exploration of the surrealists' interest in magic, arcane learning, and indigenous spirituality, the exhibition includes paintings and works on paper by Kurt Seligmann, André Breton, Matta, Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Yves Tanquy, Man Ray, Max Ernst, Masson, Dorothea Tanning, Leonora Carrington, Wilfredo Lam, and Magritte.

Inspired by the magic-themed library of Mr. Seligmann (1900-1962), the exhibition includes rare books from the fifteenth to twentieth centuries, correspondence, ephemera, music, and film.

Organized by the Herbert Johnson Museum, Cornell University. Curated by Andy Weislogel, Curator of Earlier European and American Art (Johnson Museum) and Laurent Ferri, Curator of the Pre-1800 Collections, Rare Books & Manuscripts, Cornell University, Carl A. Kroch Library.

 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.

Helena Rubinstein: Beauty is Power

Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965) was born in Poland and immigrated – via Austria 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. Rubinstein was an extraordinary collector of African art, which is featured here along with many of the Ellie Nadelman sculptures that she acquired. 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.


April 21, 2015 - June 14, 2015
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.

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)
