About The Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery at CCE

The Sallie & Berton Korman Family Fund donated $250,000 to the Center for Creative Education in the Spring of 2018 to name the gallery space.  The Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery is a 1,500 square foot space which opened in late 2013 to present ongoing exhibitions.  Exhibitions focus on student artworks in addition to artists of established, local and national standing while creating connections to CCE’s educational programming curriculum.  The gallery also aims to be a place of experience and inspiration that educates the public about art and artists, and provides student artists of CCE first-hand exposure of the professional world of art.

For gallery updates and insight, please connect with us on Facebook.

The gallery earns a highlight by our friends at Audi West Palm Beach as a can’t miss!

Exhibitions

This Season of exhibitions aligns CCE’s Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery, Conrad N. Hilton Theater, and our C4 Media Arts, After-School programming.  Thematically the art exhibitions align with the theatrical productions, while also incorporating student participation across the board.  Please visit the Hilton Theater page on our website for that schedule of events.  The following art exhibitions are outlined for this Season;

CURRENTLY ON VIEW

June 2019 – August 2019
‘Florida: Faces & Places’

Special Exhibition Partner: Historical Society of Palm Beach County
Exhibition Reception: Friday, July 26, 2019 | 6pm | $10 Entry
– Reception also includes a special Documentary screening detailed below.

‘Florida: Faces & Places’ is focused on how local, Florida residents spend each day of their lives. A global view of Florida from outside of the state often relates to Beaches, Disney World, and other sunshine baked tourist destinations. This exhibition presents what life is truly like for Florida locals, day in and day out through photography.

This exhibition will pair with a Summer, student documentary project being created with a collaboration between Center for Creative Education’s C4 Media Arts & Technology program and Blue Planet Writers’ Room.  Two local, non-profits with missions dedicated to education.  The students will be able to share their own stories that document their lives and culture in Florida.  Many of these stories will surprise people who have never been to Florida or only connect to Florida from a tourism perspective.

‘Art of Science’
Special Exhibition Partner: South Florida Science Center & Aquarium
Exhibition Reception: Friday, October 25, 2019 | 6pm | FREE

The Art of Science initiative is a collaborative effort of the Center for Creative Education, South Florida Science Center and Aquarium based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities delivered to ten Palm Beach County elementary after school sites.  Third through Fifth grade students were taught five sequential inter-related science sessions by the South Florida Science Center on various topics such as the beauty and anatomy of cells, brain anatomy, and the anatomy of a neuron. The science lesson incorporated an art project with a CCE Teaching Artist in which the students reinforced their scientific knowledge through visual arts.
