I’m inviting you to come along, dear art&culture reader, on what will be a memorable journey. This issue is your ticket to a new season of culture, with stories on public art, the exciting Art & Décor exhibition, and a look into our past with Council founder Alexander W. Dreyfoos.

ROLLIN MCGRAIL, OPENING NIGHT “I wanted to depict the muses, in an amusing way,” says McGrail, whose trademark images often kindheartedly lampoon the rich while harkening back to the era of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The subject matter of this piece is a recurring theme in her work: “It is reminiscent of some earlier work I did for the Palm Beach Royal Poinciana Theater.” rollinmcgrail.com TERESA KORBER, PULSE “This painting represents how the Cultural Council continues to support, promote, and serve diversified artists. The dedication and love for art and culture are symbolically spoken through the literal use of hearts, but it is also a deeper story of the unique individuality that we all possess—which should be celebrated and supported by our communities.” facebook.com/t.korberart ANTHONY BURKS, NATURAL BEAUTY: ROSALIA MARTINEZ “In my culture, women are a…

A striking new public sculpture in Boynton Beach titled Cavalcade might more aptly be called Celebration. Despite its massive dimensions—40 feet tall, 8.5 tons—this joyous explosion of colorful steel communicates a vibrant sense of movement. “Wind is invisible, and gravity is invisible,” says Albert Paley, the artist behind the work. “But we respond to both wind and gravity in visceral ways, so the sculpture has a sense of balance and repositioning.” Commissioned by the developers of 500 Ocean, a residential and mixed-use project, Cavalcade stands in the plaza at the corner of Federal Highway and E. Ocean Avenue, greeting visitors and residents alike. The largest public art sculpture in the county, the piece was unveiled in October as part of the city’s Art in Public Places program, followed by five additional…
