The Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to announce a new photographic exhibit, “Student Views of South Florida and the World: Photography from Boca Raton Community High School.” Visitors to the Art in Public Places area of the Downtown Library will be able to view a variety of photographs taken by the students in Boca High’s esteemed photography program.
Boca Raton Community High School has more than 500 students taking photography for college credit through the College Board in the United States and Cambridge University in England. Students learn the elements and principles of art; how to properly use cameras and photographic techniques; and how to process their images using Photoshop. The program is a 3-year course of study taught by five instructors, which also includes industry certification in Photoshop. The students compete in—and frequently win—numerous photo contests. They also serve the school’s yearbook, newspaper and athletic programs.

The Boca Raton Public Library presents the Florida premiere of TYRUS, an award-winning documentary about the life of Chinese-American painter Tyrus Wong. A brilliant artist, Tyrus Wong once exhibited with Picasso and Matisse. A film and animation legend, Wong was the visual genius behind such classics as "Bambi" and "Rebel Without a Cause." Wong survived Angel Island, the Chinese Exclusion Act and the Great Depression. His talent, humor, humility and resilience are explored in this in-depth portrait of his life. TYRUS premiered at the 42nd Telluride Film Festival and has since garnered awards at film festivals across the country. The film uses original interviews of Wong, guest interviews, archival footage and photos along with clips and concept art from early Hollywood movies and his 80 years of work to tell the story of his remarkable journey from his birthplace in Guangzhou, China, to the boardinghouses of Los Angeles’s old Chinatown and to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
