Looking Glass Exhibition


Located in the restored 1913 elementary building on the Old School Square campus, the Cornell Art Museum was dedicated in 1990 as the visual arts center of Old School Square.

The Museum strives to show contemporary artists who create innovative and provocative works of art. Inquisitive visitors enjoy intriguing pieces of artwork while discovering new artists and styles. The Museum exposes the community to artwork that is culturally relevant and exciting, hoping to foster creativity and inspire imagination. Museum shows typically begin with a theme and blossom into dynamic group exhibitions that excite visitors from all backgrounds.

The Cornell Art Museum’s Art Walk Gallery features month-long, pop-up exhibits of works by local artists. Each exhibit opens on the first Friday of the month as part of Delray’s First Friday Art Walk event, an open house for the art galleries in downtown Delray Beach.

What's next. 🥀Flora. 🥀 Featuring #artist #TiffanieTurner, who creates gorgeous flowers out of paper, a process that can take up to 400 hours to complete! " I like to bring the smallest things we take for granted or that might go unnoticed, like the shape of the smallest floret of a flower, right to the viewer’s face, when one may realize they never knew them at all." Read more about Tiffanie here: http://www.papelsf.com/about-1/

What's next. 🌼Flora🌼 Featuring #artist Ora Brough Sorensen, who describes her work as “exaggerated realism”, where the colors, scale, contrast and lighting are pushed just beyond reality. Her popular still lifes evoke the beauty of nature, and then heighten it with vibrant colors, brilliant light and dancing shadows. Meet Ora at the Flora, Opening Celebration on March 29 at the #CornellArtMuseum!
