2020 vision

Happy 2020, art&culture readers! I am thrilled to share our vision of the Cultural Council’s future with you, including our new look (which you saw on the cover) and name (Cultural Council for Palm Beach County). The name change especially is uniquely demonstrative of our renewed focus on services and support for each and every part of the cultural sector here in Palm Beach County. Where better to reveal the new Cultural Council for Palm Beach County than in art&culture magazine? Be sure to view our special insert to learn all the details about this exciting news. I want to take a moment to make one thing very clear: None of this important work would be possible without the steadfast support of our board of directors, the dedication and creativity of our staff,…

in the groove

It all started with some bamboo driftwood that had washed ashore in Trinidad and Tobago. Jamie Powell came upon it, and the bone white shade and structure of the object caught his eye. Something told him to pick it up, and he ended up fashioning the material into a makeshift shelter, a drum, and a sculpture. “The color and shape just enticed me,” he recalls. His bamboo creations didn’t make it past U.S. Customs, but the experience would end up directing his career in the future. A long-time drummer, Powell—who grew up in Massachusetts but has been a South Florida resident off and on since the mid-1990s—now creates mesmerizing lighting fixtures with intricate patterns he handcarves in bamboo. He makes the lights in his local studio, dubbed Bamboo Groove, and sells them…

FUNDING For many artists, applying for grants is crucial to their ability to continue to create. Artist Craig McInnis, who serves on the board of the No More Starving Artists Foundation—a local nonprofit that gives micro-grants to individual artists—says grants can “create more diversity and freedom in an artist’s career.” Galleries, nonprofits, and universities, among other organizations, all offer grants to artists, and McInnis suggests checking databases like Artwork Archive and Florida Grant Watch for other opportunities. National foundations tend to offer more competitive grants, so if you’re applying for those, balance them with more local and low-profile grants. Read guidelines carefully for eligibility (certain grants may request artists from a certain medium or age group) and draft your application at least a week or two in advance to allow time…

wordless wonders

As a child growing up in Puerto Rico, Raúl Colón often missed weeks of school because of chronic asthma. To pass the time, he would sketch in bed. “Drawing was my window to another world,” he says. Now primarily a children’s book illustrator (and writer) who has worked on nearly 50 titles, Colón will let Palm Beach County into that window as the featured speaker at Lake Worth Beach’s BiblioArte, an annual celebration of art and literacy. “Children love to draw, and it’s exciting when they learn they can do that for a living,” says Colón, 67, who was born in New York City but moved to Caguas, Puerto Rico with his family when he was 9. “I wish I’d had a visit from a professional illustrator when I was young.” Colón’s…
