Because Limits Should Be Pushed

A white horse sits atop a bundle of cash, the Latin phrase pecunia non olet displayed on the apron-clad equine. The translation: Money does not smell. Exactly what this means is something Gisela Pferdekamper wants you to ponder with her painting Stimulus, part of the exhibit “Contempo: Pushing the Limit on Art,” opening Thursday at the Lighthouse Center for the Arts (373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta). The 34-piece exhibit is joined by two other openings this week: “Bra-Vo!,” a collection of artfully handmade bras, and “The Art of Film,” featuring artists who create pieces with film, not on film — finding more use in the medium as sculpture material than something to run through a camera. On the final day of “Bra-Vo!,” the bras will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting breast cancer research. This may not be Victoria’s Secret material, but hey — it’s for a good cause. The three exhibits are free, open to the public from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and run through February 11. Call 561-746-3101, or visit lighthousearts.org.
Jan. 8-Feb. 11, 6:30 p.m., 2010
