“Reflections” by Ralfonso

 

 

 

“Kinetic Art Exhibit attracts artists and celebrates kinetic art, branding the City as a premier arts destination,” said Eleanor Krusell, Director of Marketing & Events for the City of Boynton Beach. “This year’s exhibit will attract families and art patrons to Boynton Beach.”

 

The outdoor installations are accessed via an easy-to-walk self-guided tour. During opening weekend, the FREE public event will take place on Saturday, March 6th, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 7th, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

Highlights during this year’s event include an unveiling of world-renowned kinetic sculptor Ralfonso’s piece “Reflections”. This gateway feature for the City’s Town Square redevelopment project is located at the North East corner of E Ocean Ave. and Seacrest Blvd. The 27’ high sculpture features twenty-one 3ʹ to 11’ long bird-like wings that rotate in the wind. Fabricated by EES Designs, this stainless-steel artwork reflects nature by day and is colorfully lit at night. The wings intersect, representing the City’s diversity and unity. Three Zen-shaped seating walls provide sculpture viewing and a community- gathering place.

 

Additionally, “Synesthesia” by Donald Gialanella located at 120 E. Ocean Ave., will also be unveiled in November 2020. This artwork plaza is interactive during the day, engaging all generations and abilities with vibrant sounds and surface reflections. At night, it emits ambiance with soothing sounds and ever-changing light.

Courage and confidence, striking design and simplicity of materials give Debbie Mostel’s jewelry an eternal quality she has long been noted for. Silver and gold, glass rods and globes and yes, intricate pieces from computer parts create sensual, organic, statement-making pop-art jewelry designed with the future in mind.

Debbie Lee Mostel, BFA California College of the Arts and Pratt Institute in New York, was trained by master goldsmith, Ellen Broker, and master silversmith, Hans Christensen, of Copenhagen, Denmark. Early in her career, after a stint with Tiffany’s, Mostel formed her own company. Her work in the wholesale jewelry business brought her acclaim when her designs were carried by Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Ave.  Debbie’s jewelry was also seen in Richard Avedon’s fashion photographs.

Featured in dozens of magazines, Mostel’s work has depth and credibility. Her jewelry was photographed on top models such as Becky Johnson and has graced the cover of Vogue,Glamour, Bazzar, and the inside pages of the New Yorker Magazine, LA Magazine, the New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily, just to name a few.

Mostel’s work has been compared with illustrious designer Robert Lee Morris who came up during the same era as Mostel. Both designers have been influenced by the forms they find in nature and their interest in sculpting. Both love the feel and look of silver and perhaps one difference may be in the stunning simplicity of Mostel’s designs.

 

 

"Joyful Universe" by Debbie Mostel

“Joyful Universe” by Debbie Mostel

 

“Joyful Universe” will be on display at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County from Dec 16th–Feb 10th.  Debbie tells The Rickie Report, ” Upon creating this piece what occurs to me most profoundly is the beautiful planet we live on. Even with its changing political boundaries, ecological uncertainty, and polluted waterways our planet is a miracle in our Universe. I am A Science based thinker/Designer/artist who sees the blessings and wonders in every drop of water and behind every blade of grass. I don’t mean to get too sappy, but I do feel passionately connected to our Earth. Sadly, too many humans today are just out of touch with their home​.”

Mostel’s national recognition is underscored by artist and writer, Bruce Helander who has supported her rise up the ladder. “Mostel takes the viewer on an anything goes journey” says Helander of her work. The Norton Museum of Art has featured Debbie Lee in their Art after Dark series. She is a member of the Artists of Palm Beach County, National Association of Women Artists (NAWA),Boca Museum’s Artist Guild, Lighthouse ArtCenter and Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

February 6-8, 2015 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium created by the Boynton Beach Arts Commission produced by the City of Boynton Beach through its Art in Public Places program. It’s a signature cultural event for the City’s Strategic Plan and is key to it’s economic development planning.

The objectives of this biennial Symposium are to:

  • The goal is to deliver an Art and Cultural event that transcended typical art fairs, delivers international attention to the City of Boynton Beach and educated and engaged a diverse audience about public art.
  • Celebrate the dynamic and compelling aspects of today’s kinetic art to the general public, public art professionals, as well as art and museum curators, and gallerists.
  • Build public and private interest in collecting and/or commissioning kinetic art through exposure to its rich historical context and through exhibitions of its various contemporary forms.
  • Motivate educators to incorporate kinetic art into the S.T.E.A.M. curriculum. The importance of adding “art” to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is to utilize both sides of the brain and to make learning “fun.”
  • Stimulate creative applications of various technologies in kinetic art, including “green” technologies in concert with the City’s Green Building Program.
  • Create a highly visible, bi-annual, international event that nurtures an exciting contemporary art form, while stimulating the local economy, creating an important cultural destination, and revitalizing a local community.
