3 to See


It’s almost the weekend – time for the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to share with you the best of what our community has to offer. Each week, you get three ideas – one that’s free, one that’s affordable and one that’s a splurge. Your “3 to See” cultural curator is Rena Blades, president and CEO of the Cultural Council.

While most art lovers and aficionados flock to the newest trends and movements, there’s a certain fascination with kitsch, especially over the last few decades. The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach celebrates this genre, defined as appealing to popular or lowbrow taste, in its newest exhibition, “Kitsch and Kulture,” on display through the end of August. For the show, four South Florida-based artists created a narrative that details the kitsch movement from the 1960s to the 1990s through photographs, sculpture, fashion and more.

“Kitsch and Kulture: Transition in South Florida Culture 1960-1990:” On display from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays through Aug. 30. The Box Gallery, 811 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach. Info: 786-521-1199 or

Listen to Rosemary in a recent interview with Jana Panariteshere:

"Her uncensored vision of the world has been described as symbolic, allegorical, metaphorical, emotional and imaginative."-PalmBeachPost

See more work online:

78-year-old Rosemary Otto is a self-taught, outsider artist whose work is both a form of creative expression and has helped in her recovery from mental illness. Born in Germany to an American mother and German father, Rosemary now lives in the house where she was raised: her great-grandmother’s house in Lake Worth, Florida, where she paints in between visits to the nearby senior center and her doctor appointments.

“The Invisible Women,” is a series of works that challenge us to think differently about the older adults around us.
