RAFAEL DOMENECH’S ‘URBAN REALISM’ WORKS
Through Tuesday, in the west lobby of the Whitney Condominium, 410 Evernia St., West Palm Beach. Domenech’s message, often perceived in Cuba as problematic and negative, is not intended to be “political”; rather it conveys the loneliness and emptiness within himself. His works still reflect the backdrop of his adolescence, incorporating graffiti art, wall etchings, wire fences and traces of revolutionary propaganda among the cityscapes, bringing to our attention the deterioration of the Cuban infrastructure and neglect of its architectural legacy. Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and by appointment. (561) 833-8283.

iLAND VIEWS — A DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION BY KARI AND JEAUX MCCORMICK
Through Tuesday, PBSC Eissey Campus Theatre Lobby Gallery, 3160 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens.
