Staff Picks: two shops and an exhibition

Deconceptshop

Picked by Georgette Evans, Advertising Account Manager

“This new Turkish home accessories store is wonderful. Beautiful mosaic lamps, colorful throw pillows and covers, intricate ceramics and table wear — all imported, very unique and affordable in price. A must see for anyone looking to redecorate and looking for something new with a little flare.”

“War Horses” at NSU Art Museum

Picked by John Thomason, Managing Editor

“None of the art on display at the NSU Art Museum’s new ‘War Horses’ exhibition bears the Adolf Hitler Seal of Approval. Labeled as ‘degenerate art’ by the Nazi regime while it was embarking on its path of global destruction, the Danish ‘Helhesten’ movement (it translates to “Hell Horse”) thumbed its nose at fascism with its groundbreaking, dynamic surrealist flourishes and childish whimsy. This exhibition includes more than 90 works from the courageous early ’40s movement, including paintings and sculpture, and it marks the first museum exhibition of its kind in the U.S. ‘War Horses’ opens Sunday, May 17, and runs through Oct. 4.”

Athleta

Picked by Rebecca Valenza, National Account Manager

“The new Athleta store in Town Center is awesome!  Here you’ll find very high quality lifestyle clothing that you can work out in, weekend attire, hangout attire and just live-able stuff. The staff is awesome. See Mickey or James and they will take care of you like family!”

Walk in their Shoes

Picked by Stefanie Cainto, Freelance Web Editor

“Do you have a pair of new or gently worn shoes you can afford to give away? If so, now is the time. From May 15-17, Town Center at Boca Raton is collecting new or gently used shoes for Dress for Success, an organization that helps women land employment opportunities. For every pair donated, the Diagnostic Centers of America will also donate $5 to a fund that helps women who otherwise can’t afford it receive lifesaving mammograms. You can leave your donations at the DCA box behind the Starbucks kiosk between Macy’s and Sears.”
