“We The People: Propaganda Art” 
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 at 7 PM.

The upcoming exhibition reception for the “We The People: Propaganda Art” will open as scheduled with a reception open to the public on
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 at 7 PM.



"As the host of Hola Palm Beach Talk Show on HOLA TV and the owner and curator I have much concern for the safety of my guests, my artists, and my patrons.
My program Activism and Art which featured Giannina Coppiano Dwin and Alessandra Mondolfi  was aired this Sunday and I have decided not to postpone or to cancel the “We The People: Propaganda Arts Exhibition that has been planned to coincide with the Florida elections for months, as to do so would be reactionary and a sign of unwarranted fear."
-Rolando Chang Barrero




The Box Gallery has been historically and uniquely, a place where all views are presented in an educational, engaging and inspiring manner.
Our patrons and art collectors, including conservatives and liberals alike, would be taken aback if we scrummed to self censorship in any way.

The exhibition is meant to engage the public in the current international debate in visual art regarding propaganda art and to showcase, as well as, document the work of artists that have in the last few years used their art as a means to tighten awareness of issues and concerns they have in the current political climate.

The event which includes art works by:
Alessandra Mondolfi,Carol Erenrich, Jeanne Martin,Rolando Chang Barrero, Adam Fiveson, Stacey Mandell
Stephen Lombardi, Cassandra Nordenbrock, Judy Leeson Polstra
Jen Fisher, Rolando Ruocco,Sue Oaks, Wendy Carey, Ilene Adams, and Paul Guirguis.

Live Music by Rod Dusinberre and Melody Stuart.

Special non-partisan presentation in Spanish and English by Claudia Mendoza and Jaime Todd Foreman

Fundraising fun in Palm Beach for very serious cause at The Box Gallery!

811 Belvedere Road
West Palm Beach, Florida 33405


The riders, their friends and supporters of The Smart Ride gathered at
The Box Gallery last night to raise funds for Team Bill Bone.  

Now in it's 15th year The Smart Ride has been raising funds and awareness to support non-profit agencies and organizations, turning  a dream into a reality to make a significant difference in the lives of those infected, affected and at risk for HIV/AIDS.



The 2 Day Ride, 165-Mile Ride from Miami to Key West will take place on November 16th and 17th, 2018.

In the past 14 years they have raised over $9.3 Million and 100% of every penny went back to the communities we all serve. They have a goal of $1.5 Million raised this year alone, which will help tens of thousands of people get the dignity they deserve, the transportation to and from medical appointments, the mental and medical help they need.


Stopping this Pandemic Starts With You!  Florida continues to rank #1 in the nation for new cases of AIDS and HIV. WE can STOP this, but it takes all of us.



Last night "Team Bill Bone" held one of the many of the local fundraisers at
The Box Gallery  with the generous support from sponsors
Table 26, Maison Carlos Restaurant, and Kitchen
