Howard Alan Events Launches “Live Well Be Well Tour” Presented by FPL SolarNow™ During The  31st Annual Las Olas Art Fair October 20 – 21 

Ancient Greeks understood – and recent science has proven – that art, the environment, and a healthy body all work together to promote longevity and a better life. This knowledge inspired the nation’s top art festival producer to create a one-of-a-kind event launching this season. The Howard Alan Events’ Live Well Be Well Tour presented by FPL SolarNow™ premieres October 20 – 21 during the 31st Annual Las Olas Art Fair.  Joining nearly 300 artists’ booths along iconic Las Olas Boulevard will be an entire “festival-within-a-festival” with a dedicated area of booths offering information and demonstrations on current health and medical practices, sustainable energy alternatives, organic foods, homeopathic treatments, state-of-the-art exercise equipment and other vendors dedicated to providing tools for healthy living.  Kudos to Howard and Debbie for being pioneers and visionaries once again!  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks of the fine art.

“I actually began my career decades ago in medicine, and opened one of the first organic fast food restaurants in the state,” says longtime producer Howard Alan. “My wife and I have always been health-conscious, and know the value of a healthy body boosting creativity and longevity. Most of our regular art festival patrons are just as particular about the environment, their health and lifestyle choices as they are about their art.” This observation over the years led to Alan being among the first to incorporate recycling options and natural food offerings into his art festivals, and eventually, to the creation of the “Live Well Be Well Tour”.

 

 

 

 

 

Studies have recently proven that exercise and a healthy lifestyle not only stave off dementia, but also stimulate the Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which encourages the creation of new brain cells in the hippocampus. This is the same part of the brain that is critical for long-term memory retention and creative thinking.  “Most of our longtime artists themselves have adopted a healthy regimen in order to do the tours, which can be physically grueling, and they say it keeps them creatively inspired. They also draw key inspiration from our environment, so sustainability is as critical to them as it is to our patrons,” continues Alan. “A healthy lifestyle allows us to think creatively, the environment sustains us, and art enables us to bring that creativity to life and to inspire others. All these things working together define what it means to live well and to be well.”

LOCAL CONNECTIONS:

LOCAL COMPANIES BRING REAL-WORLD INNOVATIONS TO BOYNTON BEACH KINETIC ART EXHIBIT!

The International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium, which will be held Feb. 6-8, 2015, in Boynton Beach is designed to connect visitors and participants to one-of-a-kind visual experiences.  Contributing toward that goal will be Boynton Beach-based Boca Bearings and Flipstone Technology’s HackLab, which will each bring real-world technical innovations to the weekend event.
In addition to highlighting their line of ball bearings, roller bearings and linear bearings, which are used by kinetic artists to create their work, and educating the public on how bearings work, Boca Bearings will have multi-rotor and 3-D printing demonstrations at the event. Similar to a hybrid helicopter because it is a multi-rotor aircraft, these small, radio controlled flying machines are being used increasingly for aerial photography and surveillance. 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process that creates three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The object is created by laying down consecutive layers of material until the entire object is created.

 (http://tinyurl.com/olrhtqm), Kinetic artist Jennifer Townley will exhibit her entry, “Bussola,” which is named after the Italian word for “compass,” as this three-dimensional work was inspired by one of Leonardo da Vinci’s designs for a compass dating from 1514. The skeleton-like structure seems to behave like a natural organism that slowly moves forward through space. 

 

Flipstone Technology’s Hacklab North Boynton:

 

Flipstone Technology’s nonprofit organization, Hacklab North Boynton, is dedicated to making the community more aware of real-world technological innovations. (http://tinyurl.com/mpysss2) In keeping with this commitment, Hacklab  North Boynton is bringing its interactive “Daft Booth” to the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium. Based on the sound booth used at the 2014 Grammy Awards by by the French electronic music duo Daft Punk, the “Daft Booth” is an interactive soundboard that incorporates musical samplings of the duo.  Buttons, light and sound are meshed together in such a way that anybody can use the booth to turn themselves into their own DJ.

 

Sarah Younger, a 2013 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium “People Choice Award” winner, has partnered with Hacklab North Boynton to offer free public workshops Jan. 10 and 24, 2015, on how to work with technologies and build renewable energy art forms. Completed projects will be showcased at the International Art Exhibit and Symposium. For more information, visit www.LampInfo.org; emailLampInc@comcast.net; or on Facebook at Living Arts Meta Programs.

 MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO CONNECT TO KINETIC ART:

 

The exhibit and symposium also leaves room to connect with kinetic art through educational presentations both days. Presenters include working kinetic artists and educators Paul Daniels, Behnaz Farahi, Jay Flanzbaum, Angus Forbes, Jerzy Kedziora, Cory Oliver, Ralfonso, Nancy Schiffer, and Rein Treifeldt. They will cover the historical, present and future of kinetic art.

 

Kinetic Connections

 

There will be interactive participation in many of the displays. For example, visitors are invited to meet artist Elayna Toby who has transformed an old tree into a kinetic sculpture.

 

Kinetic-Connections conecpt tree.ElaynaTobyArt

Meet Me At The Tree!

 

 

A compilation video about the hundreds of community contributed items that make up Kinetic-Connections will be featured adjacent to the transformed tree during the 2015 International Kinetic Art Exhibition and Symposium from February 6-8, 2015.

 

Kinetic-Connections will be a temporary piece taken down at the end of the symposium, leaving the tree in its original state, as if untouched. The strands, inspired by and generated from the community, will then be “recycled” back into the world, made available for sale as decorations for home or garden. A portion of the proceeds from sales of these strands will benefit the City of Boynton Beach Art in Public Places program and Resource Depot.

 

Kinetic Solar Butterflies

Visitors can also learn about solar energy and construct dancing solar butterflies that will join hundreds of other solar butterflies on exhibit at the City’s Schoolhouse Children’s Museum. There’s an opportunity to become your own DJ by using the buttons, lights and sounds in HackLab North Boynton’s “Daft Booth,” inspired by the Grammy Award winning group Daft Punk.

 

Complementing these activities will be original projects such as an outdoor kinetic dance performance by Boytnon Beach Community High School’s dance academy. Students from Ft. Lauderdale’s Central Charter School will exhibit their maquette and marketing plans for their solar tree project.

 

SolART

Educational component of the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium. 

 

Central Charter School of Boca Raton, Florida will participate in the International Solar Tree Kinetic Art Sculpture program created by International Kinetic artist Rein Triefeldt.

 

When the Arts Commission was forming their visioning plan their goal was to deliver an art event that transcended typical art fairs, brought international attention to the City of Boynton Beach, educated and engaged the public in the arts.  Ralfonso shared similar goals and was often approached by educators to speak to students about how Kinetic Art is made. Ralfonso brought his experience with kinetic art projects. He collaborated with universities in China and Sweden to integrated the creative disciplines such as sculpture, engineering, science, physics, fabrication and the environment to create dynamic kinetic art sculptures.  These have been huge successes and a learning experience for all involved.

 

Kinetic Art organization co-founder,  Rein Treifledt who has created functional solar driven kinetic art throughout the Nation and now Internationally was introduced to the collaborative.  Rein’s interdisciplinary curriculum is the exact focus for integrated based  learning that is now becoming a National standard.  He has been working with professors at Drexel University to incorporate his Kinetic Solar Art curriculum into the national school systems.

Alexandre Dang comes from a scientific background. Convinced of the need to raise awareness of the potential of environmental friendly technologies (eco-technologies) and sustainable development, he developed his artistic creation often incorporating solar energy as source into his kinetic art works. Though the sun provides 10,000 times more energy to the earth than humans need, more than 1.7 billion people still do not have access to electricity. The pressing need to address this issue is the driving force of Dang’s artistic commitment, where he combines scientific approach, environmental concern and humanism. To learn more, visit solarsolidarite.org.

Dang will also conduct workshops at Galaxy E3 (Engineering, Energy, Environment) Elementary School in Boynton Beach on Friday, Feb. 6. Students there will also create dancing solar butterflies that will be added to the exhibit at the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center. Both the school and the museum are excited to bring this valuable workshop to their facilities as it aligns with their S.T.E.A.M., Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math programming.

In addition, The Rickie Report shares the results of the  “Focus on Planning” Photo Contest, which youth and adults participated.

 

 

 

MAYOR ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF THE

“FOCUS ON PLANNING” PHOTO CONTEST

 

The winners of the Focus on Planning Photo Contest were announced by Mayor “Jerry” Taylor. The photo contest was held to commemorate National Community Planning Month and recognize urban design features within the City limits. Photographs must have captured Boynton Beach’s distinctive architecture; its urban designs, cityscapes, landmarks and/or structures.

 

 

Professional photographers and community leaders served as judges and selected finalists, based on subject matter, composition, clarity, lighting, depth of field, artistry/drama, degree of difficulty, technical excellence, creativity and overall impact. Five of the finalists were placed online for the public to choose “A People’s Choice Award”. Nearly 800 votes were cast from all over the world, including places as far as New Zealand and Brazil. Judges then selected the top winner in both the youth category and adult category and Mayor Taylor selected a “Special Mayor’s Award”. Winners are as follows:

This picture shows Galaxy E3 Choice School, dubbed the greenest school in the galaxy, one of the buildings that best represent efficiency and sustainability in the City.

 

 

“I was impressed by the participation of both local photographers and voters, and anticipate even greater involvement next year. Our City is so fortunate to have many distinctive architectural structures; having a photo contest was a unique way to artistically capture attributes of Boynton’s built environment,” said Mike Rumpf, Director of Planning and Zoning.
