Duck out of the summer heat and into an arts explosion at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. In June, the museum unveiled a quartet of exhibitions, including “Benn Mitchell Photographs: Hollywood to NYC,” “Matthew Schreiber: Orders of Light,” “Sari Dienes: Incidental Nature,” and “Sri Prabha: Resonator – Reanimator,” all on view to October 22.
On the first floor, explore a multisensory interplay of works by three prolific artists. “Incidental Nature” depicts the late Sari Dienes’ efforts to capture the organic textures of the outside world and, therefore, her celebration of the inherent art that exists in the everyday.
Around the corner, Hyderabad-born and Hollywood-based artist Sri Prabha’s site-specific installation fuses Vedic philosophy and science. Hypnotizing projections, towering sculptures, saturated colors, and tricks of light take viewers on a psychedelic journey.
The meditation on light continues in Matthew Schreiber’s study of his own large-scale laser light sculptures through the drawings and holograms that serve as precursors to the enchanting final products.
Benn Mitchell’s sprawling photography catalogue occupies the Spotlight Gallery upstairs. Renowned for capturing the vitality of American life, Mitchell received his first camera at age 13, sold his first image to Life at 16, and photographed Hollywood stars with unfettered access at Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles.
