new beginnings

Welcome to the new art&culture magazine Over the past 10 years that we’ve been publishing this magazine, the cultural sector of Palm Beach County has grown immensely. Newly developed arts districts, flourishing cultural organizations, and an influx of both residents and tourists are key factors in the county’s development. Since its inception, art&culture has evolved into the definitive source for all things cultural in Palm Beach County. And now we’ve started working with the team at Palm Beach Media Group to bring you the next step in advancement for the magazine, which you now hold in your hands. While this first issue of the redesigned and reimagined art&culture may look different, the mission is still the same as it was when we began more than a decade ago: to bring readers the best…

CHRIS LEIDY With an adventurous spirit and a fearless attitude, underwater photographer Chris Leidy (“Into the Deep,” page 32) captures awe-inspiring images, transporting viewers to another world where they can share in his experiences. Drawn to the abstract, he’s a big fan of Greek artist Haris Lithos, who uses “tools” like teddy bears and women’s buttocks to create his unique pop-style prints. The photo essay in this issue highlights images from Leidy’s recent trip to the Arctic. “It is Dutch artists like Vermeer who most influence my work today. His use of light is utterly distinctive and so, so beautiful.” —Photographer Libby Volgyes SCOTT EYMAN Scott Eyman, whose upcoming book Hank and Jim (Simon & Schuster) tells the story of the friendship between Henry Fonda and James Steward, was books editor of The Palm…

heart of glass

All that glitters is not gold but glass at the Boca Raton Museum of Art’s new exhibit, Glasstress, featuring unique installations created by 33 contemporary artists from around the world. Initiated by Italy’s Fondazione Berengo as a way to revitalize the glass industry in Murano, Glasstress challenges artists who don’t typically work in the medium to create pieces alongside the master artisans at Berengo Studio. The results, which speak to important social and global issues facing us today, are gripping. Chinese artist Song Dong delicately manipulates the material to create a beautiful surveillance-camera chandelier, Big Glass Brother. Duo Lucy and Jorge Orta comment on environmental threats with Perpetual Amazonia: Tree of Life. And local artist Carol Prusa unveils Spooky Action, a new sculpture commissioned by the Boca Museum especially for…

5 to see

1 ON POINTE For lovers of dance, there’s nothing quite like a show that combines traditional ballet and a classic story of enchantment—with music by one of the greats. Ballet Palm Beach delivers with Sleeping Beauty & Other Works at the Eissey Campus Theatre at Palm Beach State College. Artistic Director Colleen Smith has masterminded a one-act version of the beloved fairy tale, underscored by Tchaikovsky. The performance is followed by two shorter Smith creations—Simple Symphony, set to Benjamin Britten’s work of the same name, and Because I Said So, a whimsical take on well-known “mom warnings” set to jazz by French musician Claude Bolling.

edel rodriguez

Everybody has a story, but Edel Rodriguez’s life is a novel. At the age of 9, he and his family came to America from their native Cuba in the Mariel boatlift. They settled in Hialeah, where his mother was a seamstress and his father worked odd jobs. Today, he is a successful illustrator with multiple Time magazine covers to his credit, as well as a fine artist and a children’s book author. This, ladies and gentlemen, is known as the American dream. This spring, as Rodriguez speaks to local students as part of the April Is for Authors series, he also showcases some of his art at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County North Gallery (through April 15). His emphasis is on possibilities—art is only one of perhaps thousands. His discussions touch on…
