There’s still plenty of summer left, and lots of opportunities to see some wonderful exhibits around Boca that showcase our favorite art form: Fine Art Prints.
You can start your summer exploration of Fine Art Prints by downloading our free e-book How to Identify and Buy Fine Art Prints. It’s full of illustrations and information about the history and evolution of printmaking.
For an even greater appreciation of the fine art print, especially if you want to inspire children, or your own inner child, you can make a simple print before, and after, a visit to a gallery, using the simple Potato Print method from the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
Here are a few of the nearby venues that are celebrating Fine Art Prints this summer:
The Boca Raton Museum of Art: BEYOND THE CAPE! COMICS AND CONTEMPORARY ART
The Boca Raton Museum of Art has put together a unique show of comic book art, showcasing the talents of contemporary artists of comic books and graphic novels.
BEYOND THE CAPE! COMICS AND CONTEMPORARY ART features prints, paintings, drawings, tapestries, sculpture, video and photography to explore the way in which artists like R.Crumb, Takashi Murakami, Elizabeth Murray, Yoshitomo Nara, Joyce Pensato, Raymond Pettibon, Peter Saul, Kenny Scharf and others use their illustrations for sheer entertainment as well as for dealing with social issues.
The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday. Admission for children 12 and under is free.
BEYOND THE CAPE! COMICS AND CONTEMPORARY ART will run through October 6, 2019. For more information, check out the Boca Raton Museum of Art website: bocamuseum.org.
The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens: Falling Water, Soaring Kites
Japanese prints are some of the most elegant in the world and Japanese kites some of the most exquisite. Falling Water, Soaring Kites looks at the way waterfalls are depicted in Japanese art and the way in which kites are lovingly crafted and decorated.
The Morikami hosted a Kite Flying and Kite Making event the weekend of Father’s Day, which was a huge, sold-out success.
Falling Water, Soaring Kites will be on exhibit through August 11, 2019. Brightly colored kites, in an array of shapes and sizes, are available at the Morikami gift shop. For more information, go to the Morikami Museum’s website: morikami.org/museum.
The Cornell Art Museum: Seven Solos
If you haven’t been to the Cornell Art Museum since it’s renovation, it’s worth the trip. The museum is housed in the restored 1913 Delray Elementary School building on the Old School Square campus, on Swinton Avenue in Del Ray Beach.
The current exhibit Seven Solos is a far cry from the usual walking through a gallery or museum and looking at what’s on the walls.
Seven Solos a series of immersive installations, each by a different artist, which visitors are invited to become a part of, each in a separate gallery.
Seven Solos will be on view through October 6, 2019. For more information, go to the museum’s website: cornellartmuseum.org.
