Maren Hassinger. Tree of Knowledge

Sculptor and performance artist Maren Hassinger was commissioned to conduct a residency in Boca Raton’s historic African American neighborhood of Pearl City and create a site specific installation at the Museum based on a Pearl City landmark, the “Tree of Knowledge,” a majestic 100 year old banyan tree.
Hassinger has embraced involvement of the community in the creation of work through the communal act of rolling strands of recycled newspaper through group work and story telling sessions at the
Museum and locations around Pearl City.

Clifford Ross: Waves

It would naturally be ever fascinated by the subject of waves; thus our interest in this body of work. But I have come to learn that the subject of Clifford’s photographs is as much about unpredictable shapes as the action of waves, as much about abstraction as realism. This is all brought to a high point with his most recent work. IL
