Street Art Revolution Brings Hip Hop Counter Culture To Norton Museum’s “Art After Dark” On July 6th

Street Art Revolution is a mural arts /public art collective initiative. The ‘revolution’ is to change the paradigm of what is considered art in this community. Beauty comes in many different forms and uses endless mediums. On Thursday, July 6th, Museum visitors can expect a panel discussion, an interactive mural workshop, spoken word poetry, rhythm and blues as well as participate in a guided tour of selected museum works.  Street Art Revolution has created several public art commissions in the City of West Palm Beach.  This collaboration with the Norton Museum is aided by The West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority, Do you Basel?, and other local artists.  The Rickie Report shares the details of this free event.  Kudos to Caron Bowman, Curator for Street Art Revolution!

Art Synergy is a 501 (c) 3, not for profit arts organization founded in 2013. The fruit of the labors of Rolando Chang Barrero, Craig McInnis and Freddy Hennevelt grew out of the original Think Tank,. It has flourished through grassroots efforts beginning with a partnership with Art Palm Beach.  Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community. Volunteers and board members are always welcome.

 

By March 2017, Art Synergy will have organized 6 juried exhibition that have provided Florida based artists to have their work seen, and collected by national and international collectors and art patrons. Also, Art Synergy assists nine Florida art districts organize, promote and market over 65 exhibitions in each year throughout the Palm Beach and Martin County durning Art Palm Beach week which was initiated January 2014.

 

 

The nine art districts are: Antique Row Art District,Boynton Beach Art District,Delray Art Art District,Lake ParkArt District,North Palm Beach Art District,Lake Worth Art District,Northwood Village Art District,West Palm Beach Art District,Palm Beach Art District.

 

 

In 2016 Art Synergy was classified as a 501 (c) 3 not for profit arts organization which will allow for contributions and donations to a fund currently being created to allow needy families join experiential cultural experiences. This was possible because of the generosity of David and Lee Ann Lester of Next Level Fairs who donate exhibition spaces (Booths) at 2 of the Next Level Fairs: Art Palm Beach and Art Boca Raton.

 

 

ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.

Norton Museum

 

On this cultural day trip, participants will have the opportunity to visit the renowned Norton Museum in West Palm Beach. The museum itself was founded in 1941, by Ralph Hubbard Norton and his wife Elizabeth. The couple had a taste for the fine arts and spent many years building a personal collection of paintings and sculptures. Splitting their time between Chicago and West Palm Beach, the couple decided to move to South Florida permanently and share their private collection with the public.

Today, their collection consists of more than 7,000+ works of art in the following areas: European, American, Chinese, Contemporary, and Photography.
