Come check out the latest exhibition at #LRMA "About Face: Celebrating Diversity". On view now!

Lonnie Holley (American, b. 1950) "Michael Jackson", 1994. Acrylic on paper, 22x26 in. Gift of Jim and Martha Sweeny 2017.20

Holley was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1950, the seventh of 27 children! His youth was spent in foster homes, but his grandmother adopted him at age 14 and taught him to pick through dumps for items to sell at flea markets. Known for his found object sculptures, Holley is inspired by "the divine" and "media heroes" like pop icon Michael Jackson. Holley captured the duality of Jackson's persons in this double portrait - his wide-eyed public facade versus his private life in shadowy profile. When this was painted, Jackson headlined the news for reasons other than his music, having settled a molestation case out of court and married Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa-Marie. Lonnie Holley is an African American folk, or "self-taught" artist and musician.

In addition to the wonderful variety of contemporary art at LRMA, come see the fantastic architecture, by Hoffman Architects, of the building in which it is displayed!!
Very exciting place. I'm proud to be involved (including Board for 12 years)!!
Hope the opening was a smash! Was there with you all in spirit!!!
We attended an Opening Reception at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art on Sunday, 7 October 2018. Curator Christine Renc-Carter never disappoints and continues to put on shows highlighting some of the finest pieces of art in the world! This museum is without doubt a cultural treasure in every sense of the word. Our own, Jack Barrett is one of the local artists recognized in the museum’s newest installation and a wonderful example of his work will be on long-term display along with other Florida artists of distinction! The piece, La Dance du Jardin, 1996, a mixed media collage is a playful and masterfully executed work of color composition, shapes, forms and figures. Jack’s signature characters are unmistakable. Always dancing, playing, flying or creating pandemonium, wearing strange hats and outrageous clothing, they animate much of his work and are a joy to behold! Please take some time to visit this beautiful museum and the newest work on exhibit. From the moment you walk into the building you can sense the wonder that is waiting for you. The receptive staff sincerely welcomes you and always strives to insure your visit is a pleasant experience. Don’t miss it!
