ATLANTA — The High Museum of Art will present George Voronovsky: Memoryscapes from through August 13. It will be the first major museum presentation of work by the late Ukrainian American artist (1903-1982), who transformed his Miami Beach hotel room into a paradisiacal art environment filled with vibrant paintings and carved Styrofoam sculptures in the last decade of his life. The exhibition will feature 60 of Voronovsky’s mostly untitled and undated works, the majority of which depict his early memories of a beloved life in Ukraine that he ultimately felt compelled to leave behind.

BOCA RATON, Fla. – The passion for outsider art runs deep in Florida, where self-taught artists have forged an indelible mark of special attention on the creative landscape of the state. Against the odds, many of these artists created obsessively to escape from their worlds that were often full of deep conflict and personal struggles. The exhibition titled “An Irresistible Urge to Create: The Monroe Family Collection of Florida Outsider Art,” on view at the Boca Raton Museum of Art until September 5, marks the first time a museum has presented this definitive group of artists in an exhibition of this size and scope.
