Summer in the City

“New York, New York” bubbles with human activity through colorful, vibrant renderings of the world's most exciting city. A 1919 painting by Jerome Myers titled Concert in the Park, New York employs an impressionistic, fantasy-style approach that, while seemingly a historically accurate depiction of a day in a park, also captures the spirit of people when they gather to hear music. Another, Andreas Feininger’s Midtown Manhattan from Weehawken, New Jersey, is a more abstract, though no less lively, representation of social exchanges in which dapper tuxedoed men and pearls-and-fur-clad women schmooze over cocktails. In addition, the exhibit features photographs, like William Gropper’s 1959 work Art Opening, which captures a busy bridge in front of the city skyline, finally calling the viewer’s attention to the infrastructure that keeps us connected. “New York, New York” opens October 3 at the Norton Museum of Art, and runs through December 27. Other artists featured include Reginald Marsh and Jim MacMillan’s poignant photo of the World Trade Center taken on September 12, 2001. Admission costs $8. Call 561-832-5196, or visit
Tuesdays-Sundays, 10 a.m.; Tue., Oct. 20, 10 a.m. Starts: Oct. 3. Continues through Dec. 27, 2009
