Behind the Scenes at the Boca Museum of Art

We’ve walked the halls of the Boca Museum of Art in Mizner Park countless times, admiring paintings, tapestries, photography, sculptures—including my favorite, a life-size sculpture by Izhar Patkin of Don Quixote reading the eponymous novel.

Over the years, our managing editor John Thomason has served as our magazine’s art critic, writing up each exhibit as they come and go. But we wondered, how do these exhibitions come to fruition? We did what we do best, and we went to the museum to find out.

The museum welcomed us into the exhibition space on a Monday, when it’s typically closed to the public, to see their “art ninjas” take down the Nick Carone exhibit and replace it with a new one collection by John Boone. Then, we attended the Boca Museum of Art’s Midsummer Party, where the community was welcome to see the exhibition—and meet the artist!

Want to see how it all came together? Just watch.
