PUPILS, POETRY AND PICTURES June 11 through Aug. 6
Birds Are Nice, installation plan for Take Me to Church: The Preachings of Steven Seagal
CALL TO INSTALL June 3 through July 30
Visual artists in Palm Beach County who think outside the frame to create site-specific artwork have answered the call, creating works with the Cultural Council’s main gallery space in mind. In creating work designed for a specific space, the featured artists, including Birds are N ice, Katelyn Spinelli, N icole Galluccio and the Viridis Art Collective, celebrate a process that has been prevalent in the art world since the mid-1970s while touching on themes ranging from environmental and nostalgic to conceptual.
Children’s author Robert L. Forbes and Center for Creative Education teaching artist Craig McInnis with some of the students they mentored
The Cultural Council, in collaboration with the Center for Creative Education, is hosting a colorful and creative exhibition showcasing the work of area middle school students. For two months, the students were mentored by renowned children’s book author Robert L. Forbes and CCE teaching artist Craig McInnis who encouraged them to write their own poems and/or create illustrations. Thirteen students from Rosarian Academy and BAK Middle School in West Palm Beach as well as Crestwood Middle School in Royal Palm Beach participated in the after-school workshops. Their work will be on display in the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center at the Cultural Council’s Lake Worth headquarters. A book featuring their poems and illustrations will also be available for purchase there.
From the moment school’s out until the day classes start again, cultural organizations across The Palm Beaches provide enriching and enjoyable summer activities for children. You’ll find a comprehensive online listing of art and cultural summer camps, classes and activities for kids in the Cultural Council’s 2016 Cultural Camp Guide.
