Cultural Council gallery - 10x10

 

Behind the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building along South L Street you’ll find the Cultural Council’s Project Space, which is used for activities, as well as sculpture or other site specific installations, and offers a commanding view of is the giant, kaleidoscopic Martin Luther King, Jr. mural on the south side of the Cultural Council’s headquarters.

This mural was created in 2017 during CANVAS Outdoor Museum by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who is known for his colorful, photorealistic murals. The Cultural Council chose Martin Luther King, Jr. as the subject of the mural because he represents the important ideas of heroism, community resilience, and the power to make positive change.

“Cherished” is a large-scale mural created by West Palm Beach-based artist Craig McInnis. Inspired by the Council’s Virtual Summer Performing Arts Series, the Cultural Council commissioned McInnis to create the mural in our main gallery space. Using three warm colors to paint iconic instruments, “Cherished” showcases the power of music and its ability to unite people from all walks of life.

Alone Together installation

Sharon Koskoff: Alone Together: A Coronavirus Crisis Collage

June 13 – September 12

While living alone with underlying health issues and a stay-at-home order in Delray Beach, I knew I had to stay connected and stay active! As a community motivator and public mural artist, I challenged other Palm Beach County artists to submit a square-sized creation of something relevant that they had made or that inspired them during quarantine. The overwhelming results have kept my creative spirits intact while giving participants a sense of pride, purpose and recognition. Sharon Koskoff is an arts instructor of mixed media collage at Creative Arts School at Old School Square in Delray Beach.

Letter-sized prints of these six-inch (6″) square artworks are available for a donation of $30 of more, with all proceeds benefiting the Palm Beach County Artist Relief Fund, administered by the Cultural Council. Each print will also include an image of the full mural by Sharon Koskoff.


1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival - Mick Jagger - photo by Ken Davidoff

Ken Davidoff: Photographs of Palm Beach Pop Festival, 1969

July 25 – September 12

Ken Davidoff has worked as a professional photographer since 1966, when he started working at his family’s photography studio in Palm Beach. His father, Bob Davidoff, was the family photographer for President John F. Kennedy. Over his career, Ken has captured images of rock legends such as Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley. His portfolio features additional celebrities, presidents, monarchs, and historical events, including the launch of Apollo 11. In 2008 he and Jack Connell started the company www.oldrockphoto.com which is an archive of Ken’s rock photography and has licensed many of his photos for books, magazines, documentary films, record albums, clothing, and online publications.

This exhibition showcases photographs taken at the November 1969 Palm Beach Pop Festival, where more than 40,000 fans descended on the Palm Beach International Raceway to see an iconic lineup of 1960s rock legends. As the official photographer, Ken photographed such acts as Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Sly and the Family Stone, The Byrds, and The Rolling Stones.

Petrina Easton: Summer Abstraction

August 8 – September 5

The artists participating in this exhibition were challenged to create abstract compositions using elements of color, shape, line, space, value, and texture. Creating their work over the past few months, the artists have responded differently to both the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent “Black Lives Matter” protests. To that end, the work is diverse and connected to the current state of affairs.

This exhibition is presented by Petrina Easton and Easton Art Galleries, an online-only art gallery dedicated to building and connecting a local community through art. eastonartgalleries.com

*Exhibition dates and artist interview have been rescheduled from August 1 due to potential storm impact.
