Santa Fe, Real Superheroes and Crazy Cowgirls at Boca Museum


Santa Fe, Cowgirls and Real Heroes Featured at Boca Museum

As much as I love Florida, I find something magical in the desert landscapes of the Southwest.
So do many artists. Santa Fe, New Mexico has been a Mecca for artists since the early 20th century. To see the impact of art on this small community, visit “Southwestern Allure: The Arts of the Santa Fe Art Colony” at Boca Raton Museum of Art at Mizner Park through Dec. 29.
It is a simply gorgeous, uplifting and educational exhibit by some of the best-known Santa Fe artists, such as Georgia O’Keefe, Stuart Davis, Andrew Dasburg and Marsden Hartley, as well as some you may never have heard of. The exhibit was organized by the museum and independent curator Dr. Valerie Ann Leeds, who specializes in art of this period. After its Boca Raton run, the exhibit travels to the Museum of Art in Orlando and the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
For something completely different, check out the rodeo-themed cowgirl exhibit “Nancy Davidson: Let ‘Er Buck” and the humorous yet touching photo essay, “The Real Story of the Superheroes” by Dulce Pinzon.
The museum has also instituted an “Art of Wine” series pairing fine wines with art and artists displayed in the galleries.
