"Personally, I love Thanksgiving traditions: watching football, making pumpkin pie, and saying the magic phrase that sends your aunt storming out of the dining room to sit in her car." S T e P H e N C O l B e r T Comedian 13 T R O P I C M A G A Z I N E Norton Museum of Art Terry Haggerty British-born Terry Haggerty has brought his mesmerizing pattern painting to South Florida with his newest lobby installation at the Norton Museum of Art. Previously greeted by a Florida landscape by artist Mickalene Thomas, visitors are now sur- rounded by vibrant red and white ribbons on several walls and part of the ceiling as they enter the building. The bold, geomet- ric look was inspired by the unusual di- mensions of the museum lobby and is there to stay – through September of 2015. Norton Museum of Art 1451 S. Olive Avenue West Palm Beach Photo of Terry Haggerty in front of Norton Installation: Brodigan Photography American Scene Photography: Martin Z. Margulies Collection Martin Z. Margulies, one of Miami's foremost contemporary art collectors, is lending his extensive photography collection to the NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale for its latest exhibition, "American Scene Photography: Martin Z. Margulies Collection." The exhibit showcases the beauty of America's landscape and the diversity of its peo- ple, cities, streets and homes. Included in "American Scene" are 190 photographs by a sizable selection of photographers, dating from the early 1900s to present day. It is devoted to the realist depiction of the American scene. For example, Lewis Hine's early works documenting child laborers and their working conditions contrast nicely with contemporary photographs by Helen Levitt of children playing in the street. Through each photographer, the exhibition tells the story of 20th-century American regionalism and social realism, one that is simultaneously beautiful and heartbreaking.
