{upfront} HOT TIMES

LOOKING SMART Helena Rubinstein commissioned Salvador Dalí to design packaging for her compacts and, while he was at it, to paint her portrait. A collector of people as well as art, the cosmetics maven also had Picasso, Man Ray and Warhol immortalize her beauty. Those portraits are included in Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power, an exhibition organized by the Jewish Museum, New York, that is on display at the Boca Raton Museum of Art through July 12. The show features paintings by Miró and Chagall as well as selections from Rubinstein’s fine jewelry and couture clothing collections that showcase her exquisite taste. Vintage advertisements and photographs of her residences in N ew York, Paris and London, along with her spas and salons, highlight her business acumen.

Having five Friday nights in a single month is cause for celebration. In July, the party will be at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts, which is introducing Hot Summer Nights at the Pavilion, a series of free outdoor concerts. When the sun goes down, the food trucks will gather and the music will heat up as some of the area’s most entertaining dance bands take the stage on Friday nights at 8 p.m. from July 3 through 31.

ARE WE THERE YET?

Aeronautical Exhibition Aero Congress Air Institute Veiled Prophet Designer: Carl Walter American, 1923 Color lithograph Overall: 53.3 x 35.6 cm (21 x 14 in.) Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection

Going Places: Transportation Designs from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection will be on view at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach from June 25 through January 3. Featuring more than 100 items – including models of trains, planes and automobiles as well as design drawings, concept sketches, renderings, advertising art and posters plus period newsreels and clips from classic films and television programs – this exhibition examines how we arrived. Evoking the excitement that once accompanied the simple act of getting from point A to point B, the show highlights the designers who created the look of the 20th-century vehicles that transported us and transformed the way we travel. Families have even more reason to visit the N orton. Thanks to a generous gift made by Damon and Katherine Mezzacappa, the museum will be providing free admission to all Palm Beach County residents every Saturday for two years, beginning June 6.
