Reality Bites

What do you get when you combine the true flavors of Mexico and America? Nope, it’s not Taco Bell’s newest colon-cleansing menu item; it’s a photographic exhibit entitled “The Hunter Gift: Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Arthur Rothstein.” The last in a series of three photography exhibitions this season at Norton Museum of Art, the collection is comprised of snapshots telling tales of urban and rural realities from the early 1900s. Some may upset your belly, since the images depict turmoil encountered during the Mexican Revolution and the Great Depression. Their impact, too, will definitely linger – much like your breath after devouring a seven-layer burrito. See this last series at Norton Museum of Art (1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach) Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. General admission is $8. Call 561-832-5196, or visit for more information.
