Libraries

  1. Collage Exhibit: "Fragments into Form" by Nicole Washburn

    October 6, 2017 - November 6, 2017 @ Downtown Library

    The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to exhibit “Fragments into Form: Works from 2005–2016,” by collage artist Nicole Washburn. Visitors to the Downtown Library will view a variety of paper collages that blend colors and images to portray elements from nature and the supernatural. Washburn lived in the mountain forests of central Argentina for 22 years. Life in the wilderness combined with world travel and a degree in Cultural Anthropology have given her a unique perspective on the issues facing humanity today. She has been strongly influenced by her exploration of shamanic spirituality in a Western context and uses mythological images to portray the supernatural world. Her "soulful eye-candy," as she calls it, is intended to be a reminder of the sacred presence in everyday life. “Fragments into Form” will run from October 6–November 6, 2017, at the Downtown Library, an Art in Public Places venue, at 400 NW 2nd Avenue.
