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.

Wadly Estel

After submitting endless job applications and being denied due to no experience, my unique story began May 6th, 2017, the day after I graduated from undergrad. I had borrowed a friends graduation stole and she came to pick it up. When she arrived she asked “Wadly, what’s next”, I quickly responded, “I am going to become an Event Planner and plan all types of events”. Read more>>

Practicing on myself then lead to practicing on my friends. From practicing on friends, that lead to other people seeing my love for makeup on Youtube and them asking me to do their makeup for special events. Read more>>

Such exploration not only opened my ears to new possibilities in my music but also helped me to know about the world through sound and music.

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>>

It’s extremely motivating to see other people my age be an artist. Selling my work was incredibly humbling and a much-needed ego boost.
