    'Big Art: Miniature Golf' turns museum into a putt-putt course
    Artist-designed, interactive exhibition opens Wednesday at Boca Raton Museum of Art.

    There was a fabled time in South Florida when tourists were drawn by the region's perpetual whimsy: Coastal motels were adorned with concrete mermaids, life-size camels and sheiks, and roadside attractions offered intimate visits with serpents and bicycle-riding monkeys.

    Locals enjoyed these kitschy pleasures, as well, and were privy to one more: the abundant collection of miniature golf courses that hosted family outings and children's birthday parties and challenged players to sink balls into the mouths of papier-mache dinosaurs or between the moving blades of a windmill. Skill might have counted, but luck and delight were equally important, as was whacking an opponent's ball out of sight when no one was looking.

    While a few of these courses remain, they lack the inspired brio of their predecessors and are usually more a collection of ho-hum greens, perhaps with a token waterfall thrown in. The Boca Raton Museum of Art is hoping to change that. On Wednesday, it opens "Big Art: Miniature Golf," a playable miniature golf course designed by local and national artists, who created each of the 11 holes specifically for the museum. Putters, balls, scorecards and stubby pencils are provided, as is an invitation to rethink visiting a museum as an interactive outing, one that considers fine art and its role in everyday living.

    "We don't want the museum to feel as if it is a separate and distinct experience," director Steven Maklansky says. "We want to it to be a place that connects to the other parts of your life. Museums are serious places of scholarship and creativity, but they can be playful places, too. A museum can occasionally wink with its audience."

    Escape for Less. We've got some amazing cruise deals and they're just a click away

    After working as a director and curator in institutions such as the Brevard Art Museum and the Louisiana State Museum, Maklansky succeeded retiring director George Bolge about a year ago. Since then, he has brought in a small exhibition of mechanized nature-based sculptures by Misako Inaoka and hyperrealist celebrity portraits by photographer Martin Schoeller. It was Maklansky who pitched the idea of combining mini golf with contemporary art to his curatorial staff, sparked in part from having children of his own and from his interest in the links. But some of it evolved from a personal connection to a game famed for its backdrop of brightly painted curios.

    "I admit it: It all goes back to an emotionally distressing event that happened to me when I was 8 years old," Maklansky jokes. "It was the final hole of a mini golf course, and the challenge was to put it into the clown's nose and get a free round of golf. But I didn't get it in. Instead, my ball rolled down his face and into the oblivion where all miniature golf balls go. On that day, some 40 years ago, I vowed to explore a different and happier ending to the miniature golf experience."

    The museum course is indoors, and its holes can be played in any order, since they don't progress in difficulty, though there are sundry pars set to challenge even the most-skillful player. Visitors will play "Golf in the Swamp With John Muir," by Miami artists Charles Falarara and Sri Prabha, which was fashioned with resin-made water, greenery and a ceramic alligator's mouth. Hit the ball smack into it, and you'll hear a quote from the legendary Scottish-American naturalist and founder of the Sierra Club. Jeane Cooper, a media artist and assistant professor of graphic design at Florida Atlantic University, asks golfers to aim for the pin with "Hard To Swallow," a hole in which AstroTurf leads to a broadcast of mouths on tiny vintage television screens.

    "We accepted one that's more like a pinball machine than a putting hole, from two students in Minnesota," says Kelli Bodle, the museum's assistant curator. "I'm especially interested in seeing how edgy and creepy it might look. The artists do things that remind me of Louise Bourgeois, all those drooping female parts."

    Titled "The Hole," the piece is composed of tiny bones, intestinal pieces and organs. It's crafted by hand, of course.

    Opening, "Undressing Room" at Froelick Gallery, Portland

    Summer shows usually bring out flowers and landscapes not at Froelick Gallery whose group show dares to look behind the dress codes of society.

    We are all the same naked or are we. Undressed we expose our vulnerability to ridicule or our need for admiration. Either way sometimes the clothed Human is more interesting
    and to much information a turn off. Other times it's just the right amount of titillation to hold our attention long enough before we head on to consume the next image. This was a nice attempt to play with the voyeur in all of us and it worked as the crowd proofed at the opening party. For me it was to much of a good enough thing but maybe I am just a prude at heart.
