Bruce Helander presenting: Chihuly “An Artist Collects”
Lecture with Q&A

Saturday, February 17
2 to 3 pm

A special event hosted in The Hilton Theater at CCE

Free to the Public!

 

 

 

Dale Chihuly (b. 1941), one of the most inno­vative and iconic figures in contemporary art, is also an avid collector of everything from ceramic dogs to inkwells, vintage Christmas orna­ments, dollhouse furniture, plastic radios—you name it, Chihuly collects it. These everyday objects reflect the same playful, colorful aesthetic that can be seen in Dale Chihuly’s sculptures and installations.

Fully illustrated, Chihuly: An Artist Collects includes an essay by Chihuly’s longtime friend, artist Bruce Helander, who considers why people collect and explores the collections of artists such as Damien Hirst, Peter Blake, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso—and of course, Dale Chihuly.

A brief history introduction power point will give students a perspective on collage. Students should bring a pile of magazines, scissors, mat knife, pencils, and non-petroleum based glue (a water based glue).

 

 

City Link magazine called Bruce Helander “Arguably the most recognized and successful collage artist in the country…” and Kenworth Moffett, the former director of the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, said in Gold Coast magazine that “If there was a Pulitzer Prize for collage, Helander would surely win it.” Helander has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts.

Helander’s work is in over fifty museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The artist and his work has been the subject of 100 reviews and articles in numerous publications, including Art in America, ARTnews, and The Washington Post.   (brucehelander.com)

Hubert Phipps in Studio

 

An American and British citizen, was born in Virginia in 1957. He attended the Art Students League in New York, the Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, and the San Francisco Art Institute. In the 1980’s he was a professional automobile race driver. In 2005, he built an art studio in Northern Virginia.  Phipps’ artistry is found in permanent collections including: Coral Spring Museum of Art, Tufts University Gallery, Colorado Springs Museum of Art, and Fortin Conde de Mirasol, Vieques, Puerto Rico.  The artist uses many media, including charcoal drawings, sculpture, metal, and mixed media to express his creativty.

 

“Quantum Universe” by Hubert Phipps

 

 

 

Phipps shares the following about his creative process: “I like things that are different. That is what fascinates me about abstract art; the mystery of it. For the most part I think I know what I am looking at as I go about my daily routine, and that is reassuring. Especially when I am out navigating the byways and the skyways. Yet I yearn to discover new worlds, otherworldly type worlds that are lurking in the deeper recesses of the mind. I glimpse these worlds from time to time. It may come in the middle of the night, a vision, unidentifiable, yet lovely shapes appear and I don’t have a clue what they are. What is so tantalizing to me is the endless possibilities of what they can be and I feel compelled to flesh them out and capture them on paper, on canvas, or as a 3D object.

To me, the most powerful art is that which connects within me before I even start or analyze it through thought. It is not anything I can understand or describe by thinking but something that when I look at it I am filled with awe and wonderment. This is what I experience when I stand in the presence of the great works of art that have come before.

Creating art is my opportunity to experience the realm of the abstract mind in a very inmate way. From a practical standpoint the challenge is in transforming that vision into physical form. This is what goes on in the studio. With the strokes that I change and adjust constantly until it gives me that mysterious quality that I am looking for. The sculpture usually starts with a sketch but goes through its own metamorphosis necessary in converting the 2D drawing to a 3D object. During this process I strive to create beauty, balance and other aesthetic elements but somehow the work always takes on a life of its own. It just seems to happen despite the endless struggles I experience through the creative process.

In the end I am an observer as much as anything else.”

What does C4 stand for?

The four Cs of the 21st Century Learning Model which are the most important skills required for 21st century education:

Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity.

C4 at CCE allows for our students to Explore, Connect and Create.

 

 

 

Explore: 3rd – 5th grade students will participate in weekly 90-minute classes (5:45-7:15 PM) throughout the 10-month school year.

Connect: 6th – 8th grade students will participate in weekly 90-minute classes (6:30-8:00 PM) throughout the 10-month school year.

Create: 9th – 12th grade students will participate in weekly 90-minute classes (6:30-8:00 PM) throughout the 10-month school year.

 

 

 

Students can begin their experience participating in the C4 Series at CCE in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade in C4 Explore, a 3-year multimedia storytelling program. In C4 Explore, students gain hands-on experience with a variety of art forms and learn about their expressive power to tell stories and communicate ideas in different ways. They learn the various strengths and challenges inherent in each art form to carry meaning and how they become even more impactful when combined. In C4 Explore, students will experience Theatre, Visual Arts, Sound Design, and Media Arts connected through the theme of storytelling. Students begin with Theatre during which they learn how to express themselves and interpret meaning through movement, body language and dialogue. Students create original stories and take them through the other art units to develop further. In Visual Arts, they refine key details of the characters and scenes of their stories using drawing, painting and sculpture. In Sound Design, students learn sound recording and editing software on iPads to create the soundtracks of their stories including narration, dialogue, sound effects and musical underscoring. In Media Arts, students learn video and image editing software to combine their stories, visual artwork and soundtracks into complete video projects.

The C4 Connect and Create Media Arts program supports the academic success, social-emotional health and creative development of students by providing year-round project-based learning and work-study opportunities. C4 offers teens a transformative opportunity to master and apply skills in the areas of digital media production: digital cinema, graphic arts, and coding. The project-based curriculum teaches students to create persuasive, informative content and effectively communicate their stories and concepts through video projects (documentaries, PSAs, movies, etc.), digital animation, promotional campaigns, web design, and app development. Students receive expert instruction and guidance from industry professionals where they learn how to produce video projects, create animation, build promotional campaigns and design websites using industry-standard software and equipment in a facility mirroring professional creative spaces. These include a newly constructed and equipped 20-station iMac lab, recording studio and flexible theater space with 9’x16’ LED screen.

History:

In the early 1990’s a group of leaders at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach became concerned about the trend to cut back on arts education in schools. Visual arts, dance and music programs were being slashed to balance budgets. The Council commissioned a study, funded in part by the MacArthur Foundation and the Chastain Charitable Foundation, to find a way to help fill the void.

In 1994 that county-wide study led to the creation of the nonprofit, Center for Creative Education. Its mission was to train teachers how to bring the arts back into schools, by integrating art into other classroom studies. This “Arts Integration” is still the basis for what we do today. For more than two decades CCE has been partnering with schools and after-school sites in Palm Beach County to provide quality, creative educational opportunities, using the arts as the foundation.

The Center:

Surprisingly, the Center for Creative Education’s first office was an un-used exam room at Good Samaritan Hospital. These creative accommodations were courtesy of the chairman of the committee that created CCE, Dr. Robert Brodner, a neurosurgeon who practices at the hospital.

Today, thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have our own beautiful Center in Northwood Village in West Palm Beach. The building was a roller rink back in the 1950’s and 60’s, so it is once again a place to delight children! The Center features an art gallery, classrooms, meeting rooms and is home to our administrative offices. Construction is currently underway on two art studios
