Men to walk in red heels to raise awareness about domestic violence

SafeSpace announces dates and co-chairs for 2014 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

Men on the Treasure Coast will be stepping up in their red high heels for SafeSpace’s fifth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes events set to take place in Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River Counties in October. SafeSpace is looking for men to join these one-mile walks to step up against domestic violence andsupport the Treasure Coast’s only domestic violence outreach center.

“This is one of our most popular and visible events,” said SafeSpace CEO Jill Borowicz. “Even though the event is lighthearted, the message is serious. One out of every three women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime. There is no bigger threat to women today.”

More than 400 men and their supporters raised $52,000 for victims of domestic violence last year. The key to the event’s success is a dedicated team of co-chairs who not only help coordinate logistics and recruit participants, but who can also be seen around town donning red high heels to generate buzz and promote the walks.

The 2014 Walk A Mile in Her Shoes co-chairs are:

Martin County -  Rebecca Beckett, Oppenheimer & Co. registered client service associate andRob Ranieri, chief operating officer of The Firefly Group.

St. Lucie County - Alexis Goldberg, executive director and purchasing agent at OHD Inc. and Ken Hagin, the lead pastor at Grace Church.

Indian River County -  Lewana Dupree, human resource manager at SpectorSoft Corporation and Eric Flowers, a public affairs sergeant at the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

“October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and this is one way that the community can come together to take a stand against this silent pandemic,” said Walk A Mile In Her Shoes Martin County Co-chair Rob Ranieri. “This is the fifth year I have been involved. Every year it grows, and every year our message is amplified.”

Martin County’s walk will take place on Saturday, October 4 in downtown Stuart. Tradition Square in Port St. Lucie will host St. Lucie County’s walk on Saturday, October 11, and Indian River’s will take place on Saturday, October 25, at the Indian River Mall in Vero Beach.

For more information or to sponsor or register for the event, call SafeSpace at 772-223-2399 or visit www.safespacefl.org/events.

The Norton Museum of Art announces a new  season of exciting special exhibitions that encompasses the breadth of the art world.A spectacular print exhibition spanning 500 years from Dürerto Picasso; an exhibition of British landscape paintings, including work by Gainsborough, Constable, and Monet; a century of groundbreaking fashion photography from the archives of Condé  Nast;  High Tea, an exhibition examining how that ritual globally influenced art and culture are all on the Norton’s calendar.  

 

The season also includes the fourth Recognition of Art by Women (RAW) exhibition, featuring the first solo exhibition of the work of Swedish sculptor Klara Kristalova outside of Sweden, and the second exhibition in the biennial, international Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers, featuring four up-and-coming artists working on the leading edge of the art form.  The Rudin name shows up again in the exhibition, The Triumph of Love: Beth Rudin DeWoody Collects, showcasing highlights from DeWoody’s esteemed collection of contemporary art. The season culminates with the Norton-originated exhibition, Imaging Eden: Photographers Discover the Everglades, featuring the work of four international photographers and how they see one of the world’s great natural resources.   

 

For the fourth consecutive year, the Museum re-opens (after a two-week closing in September) with another new, dramatic lobby installation, this one by British artist Terry Haggerty.                                                

        

The special exhibition schedule is as follows:

 

New Lobby Installation by Terry Haggerty                                                                Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014 – Sept. 2015

The fourth site specific artwork for the Norton Museum lobby is being created by Terry Haggerty (b.1970, British).  Working in the tradition of geometric abstraction, Haggerty’s vocabulary for his paintings and large installation for both private and public institutions emphasizes a restricted palette, creating a sense of depth through lines in a single color of varying widths in a repeated pattern.  Haggerty is composing a work inspired by the unusual dimensions of the Norton Museum Lobby, expanding far beyond the north wall. This is the fourth site specific installation generously supported by Vanessa and Anthony Beyer as part of their commitment to Contemporary Art at the Norton.

High Tea: Glorious Manifestations - East and West spans a period of about 1,200 years from the 800s to the 1930s, with 125 objects to focus on the fine art of tea in eight key cultures worldwide- China, Korea, Japan, Germany, France, Russia, England and America. In these cultures, great works of art were created for members of high society, particularly the ruling elite and influential tea connoisseurs. Throughout time and regardless of place, tea gatherings in high society stand as efforts on the part of the host or hostess to create a memorable experience underscoring some aspect of their erudition.

Imaging Eden: Photographers Discover the Everglades                                               Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Sunday, July 12, 2015                                                                                                                                 

Photography has played an important role in the construction of the myth and reality of the Everglades. Imaging Eden presents an overview of the medium’s historic complicity as silent witness, pre-meditated booster, and passionate advocate of this unique environment, and also showcases commissioned work by four international contemporary artists, including Simon Norfolk (Nigeria), Jungjin Lee (Korea), Bert Tuenissen (the Netherlands) and Jim Goldberg (USA), whose practice is photo-based. Each artist had been asked to respond to and expand beyond the physical, ideological, and aesthetic boundaries of the Everglades in their own, unique way. The exhibition will provide fertile ground for future conversations about one of the most unique, contested, and vital landscapes on the planet.
