Thought-Provokers: Boca Raton

Miami has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Boca Raton that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Susan McKenna List

Always a ‘writer,’ after an education in ‘good’ writing, I became hypercritical and unhappy with my writing. My art story began when I tried to pull my young children away from the tv by suggesting we draw each other. We had a good laugh at our less-than-wonderful masterpieces, but I understood for the first time that, if I could be patient with myself, learn to see and keep the critic at bay, I could enjoy painting. Read more>>

As I have moved around over the years, each new home feeds into my work. After studying painting in undergraduate school came the big Jump to living in Shanghai, China.

My musical journey has been the combination of a lot of small moments, some big moments, and a handful of memorable people that serendipitously came into my life at the perfect moments.

I think with so many various social platforms it makes it easier for artists to showcase and promote their work. But in contrast, that can always be a lot of pressure and very time-consuming.
