“WAZE”

Waze, a GPS-based geographical navigation application program for smartphones provides turn-by-turn information and user-submitted travel times and route details.  The mobile telephone network Waze Ltd., which was founded in 2008 in Israel by Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai and Amir Shiner, and is now available in over 100 countries, was acquired by Google. (en.wikipidea.org)

 

The exhibit, from Israel’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Space, displays 47 photographs highlighting groundbreaking discoveries in agriculture, medicine, robotics, computerization, archeology, space, mathematics and social sciences. Examples include the development of Waze, the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app; innovative treatments for Parkinson’s disease; and the essential office gadget, the USB flash drive.

 

ROBOTICS IN SURGERY

Surgeons who utilize Mazor Robotics Renaissance generally specialize in orthopedic surgery or neurosurgery.  Mazor Robotics believes in healing through innovation by developing and introducing revolutionary technology and products aimed at redefining the gold standard of quality care. Mazor Robotics Guidance Systems enables surgeons to conduct spine and brain procedures in a precise manner in the United States and throughout the world. (www.mazorrobotics.com)

 

 

The photography was supplied by the Israeli government and originally displayed at Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport in Israel. For the U.S. debut, the exhibit space was donated by Palm Beach Outlets and curated by Ilene Gruber Adams.  “It’s an incredible honor to curate such an important exhibition for the Jewish Federation. Scientific research serves as a bridge between cultures and nations. I look forward to seeing the positive reaction of the community,” added Adams.

 

 

 

“SEEDLESS GRAPES”

Seedless grapes are generally preferred by consumers for fresh consumption. The development of new seedless selections has been recognized as a key factor in breeding programs throughout the world. Israel’s Volcani Center is actively involved in breeding seedless grapes. Special emphasis is given to the time of ripening, firmness, high sugar content, special aromas, loose and uniform bunches, natural big berries, good shelf life and reduced labor costs world wide.  (www.ishs.org)

 

 

 

“This dynamic, international exhibit offers residents and visitors the opportunity to form deeper connections to Israel through visual arts and learning about prolific scientific achievements. We are thrilled to bring this thought-provoking exhibition to the community and showcase some of the amazing inventions that have come from Israel,” said Bar Sananes, Jewish Federation’s Israeli emissary.

 

NANO-GHOST TECHNOLOGY IN MEDICINE

Nano-Ghosts technology offers a versatile and highly selective targeted delivery system to combat cancer and other diseases, thanks to scientists Marcelle Machluf and colleagues at the Technion Israel of Technology. (www.technion.ac.il)

Hart has over 35 years of professional experience in the international contemporary art field, active in NYC, L.A., London, South Florida and elsewhere. She has been engaged as a curator, gallerist, publisher of limited edition fine art works and art books, arts writer, and, last but not least, as a working artist.

An encore presentation related to this project is being highlighted to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Art Palm Beach at Palm Beach County Convention Center. A 224 page full color, hard cover book by Gean Moreno’s [NAME] Publications was produced to accompany the show, with texts by Erica Ando and Sandra Schulman. Among other awards and accolades, Ms. Hart was named Curator of the Year twice by the New Times.

For several years she oversaw all artist projects, marketing, curation of exhibitions and international sales. Hart is also an independent curator and owner of long-standing venture “lemon sky: projects + editions”, a contemporary art business devoted to working with artists through exhibiting and promoting their work.

This project has been initiated by Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt. #NowBeHere is staged city-to-city, encouraging female-identifying artists to appear en masse in a documentary photo. 305 South Florida artists participated in the photo. In January, 2016, Hart completed 6 curatorial projects, including those at the Armory Art Center and The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach and Design Sublime and Under The Bridge in Miami.

Call for Art From High School Students For The Congressional Art Competition In Washington DC

Every year since 1982, the U.S. House of Representatives has offered talented young artists from across the country the opportunity to showcase their artistic abilities. Submissions from high school students are being accepted until April 28th.  The first place artwork will be displayed in a year-long exhibit in the U.S. Capitol building and the winner will be flown to Washington, D.C. to attend the official art show opening with Members of Congress.  The Rickie Report shares the details.  DEADLINE:  April 28th.   PLEASE SHARE!

 

 

 

 

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our Congressional District.

The Artistic Discovery Contest is open to all high school students. The winning artwork of your district’s competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will include the winning artwork from all participating districts from around the country.
