GOLDEN CELEBRATION OCTOBER 9, 2016

Thank you Lori Durante for the marvelous job on Thursday, August 25th.

This tour was a site inspection for Access Destination which is a national conference organizer with an office in Southern Florida.


Access is considering each place visited for possible separate group reservations so it was an exceptional networking opportunity for all. All the places on the tour were new to most of them.  Access was truly enlightened by the Taste History Tour.

6 Places to See Street Art Murals in South Florida
by Sahily Perez

BOYNTON BEACH ARTS DISTRICT, FL

Nested in an industrial area of Boynton Beach, you will find the Boynton Beach Arts District. The location is a bit unexpected, but the warehouses are bursting with color! The really cool thing about this art district is that you can check out the work of several local artists by just walking through the rows of art, or driving through it. One of the best times to check out the Boynton Beach Art District is during one of of their art walks. Make sure to visit the Boynton Beach Arts District on Facebook to see when the next walk is scheduled.

Every 4th Thursday of the Month

ActivistArtistA Art Walk

The strip of warehouses off of Boynton Beach’s Industrial Avenue, just a block west of I-95, was home to old machine parts, drab façades, and a couple of high-end galleries that have been around since the ’80s. Now, it’s nearly all filled with art. Things began to turn around for the area when artist and gallery owner Rolando Chang Barrero moved up from South Beach, turning his studio into a gallery and taking the reins on the newly developing Boynton Beach Arts District. With a crew of like-minded arts advocates including Lea Vendetta, Andrew Ackerman, Alexia Hemingway, and Chan Shepard of the KeroWACKED Crew, a growing collection of projects meant to infuse and inspire the area with art, and new galleries popping up like weeds, it’s no surprise a monthly art walk brings in the community. Apart from spearheading the Bay Gates Project, which assigns a different artist to paint a warehouse gate each month, Barrero’s ActivistArtistA gallery also sponsors the Boynton Beach Arts District Art Walk. Visitors can expect to see open galleries and studio spaces, open-jam musical performances, food trucks, raffles, and lots more arts-fueled surprises on the fourth Thursday of each month.

Boynton’s road to recovery!
“As the city develops, so does it’s art,” said public art administrator Debby Coles-Dobay.
The Art in Public places program requires every developer to set aside a portion of their budget to bring art into the city limits.
“Art improves creativity in everyone’s daily lives,” Coles-Dobay said. “Public art stimulates the focus on a cultural economy and assists with economic development.”
“Corporations look at quality of life when they relocate, they don’t want to move to places that don’t have those services,” she said.
Art has become a major part of the city’s development. In February, the city hosted that nation’s first ever International Kinetic Art Symposium. The event attracted over 2,000 visitors from as far away as Switzerland to watch the city’s art forms in motion.
Last month, Rolando Chang Barrero — the sole-organizer for Boynton’s Art District, held a community project to revitalize an old industrial area into the city’s Art District.
Close to 1,500 people came out to help.
“Our art is world class art, akin to any large city. There are a lot of great artists and musicians that live here that go to Key West and other markets, we had to open the door so a market could exist here,” Barrero said.

” It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
-Theodore Roosevelt

The ActivistArtiststA Bay Gates Project began in mid 2011 to the sound of a local santero playing his conga drum while artist Chan Shepherd created a brown skinned Babalú Ayé a/k/a San Lázaro to the bay gate of the recently opened ActivistArtistA Gallery at what is now recognized as the Boynton Beach Art District. 
Rolando Chang Barrero initiated the outdoor exhibition project with the assistance of Boynton Beach’s Public Arts Administrator, Debby Coles-Dobay, who was instrumental in getting an addendum to allow the murals at the Boynton Beach Art District located in Boynton Beach’s Industrial Park area.
