What`s new on campus.

The Magic of BRiC

It had been many years since I had visited the old IBM campus in Boca Raton. I had forgotten how big it was and what a large role it had played in the economic life of Southern Palm Beach County. At its height, more than 10,000 IBMers worked on the picturesque campus and down Congress Avenue in Delray in the Arbors buildings. It was a remarkable era. Those memories came flooding back when I attended an event last week at the site which is now known as BRIC for Boca Raton Innovation Campus. Crocker Partners has poured millions of dollars into the campus and it looks magnificent.

“Vitacost conducted an extensive search of amenity-laden office properties in the region to fulfill its charge of finding a modernized, collaborative workplace environment with an abundance of natural light,” said Millowitz. “BRiC is the Southeast’s premier science and technology hub, and its proximity to talent and walkable amenities will provide Vitacost with a significant recruiting advantage in the years to come.”

Sister, brother duo nab National Anthem at Boca’s bowl game

Eight finalists vied for the chance to sing the National Anthem at December’s Boca Bowl on ABC-TV. But Raphael and Evelyn Martins harmonies’ wowed the judges. The Martins had their own cheering section. Evelyn works at Mobile Help at BRIC, short for Boca Raton Innovation Campus, the Idol venue. The former IBM complex is a Crocker Partners property since 2018, so company v.p. Danielle Vennett was among fans pulling for the Deerfield Beach pair.

Massive IBM Campus where PC was born now housing a new generation of innovators

In the ‘70s and ‘80s, IBM’s research & development campus in Boca Raton bustled with innovation. The huge office building housed several firsts, most notably as the place where the world first personal computer was invented by Philip “Don” Estridge and his IBM team and introduced to the world in 1981.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Crocker's Plan for BRiC

Crocker Partners planned big things for Boca Raton’s Midtown neighborhood, but city politics stopped it. Now, the company plans big things for the former IBM headquarters, which the company sold in 1996. It’s now called the Boca Raton Innovation Campus, or BRIC.

What’s Changing As Art and Technology Intersect?

Find out at BRiC “Intersection Between Art and Tech” Event May 21

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Join distinguished artist Carol Prusa at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC) on May 21 to learn how the evolution of technology in      art –from the pencil to the 3D printer – is freeing artists’ creativity.

The program, “The Intersection Between Art and Tech,” from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the BRiC Conference Center, 5000 T-Rex Avenue, is open to the public. Sponsored by BRiC, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, the Boca Raton Museum of Art and Art Hive Magazine, it’s the first public event created by the BRiC Programming Board, a group of business and community leaders focused on developing unique programming to spotlight innovation for the community and BRiC tenants.

Tickets for the May 21 event are $10 and available at workatbric.com/events. Cocktails and light bites will be served.

Award-winning contemporary artist Carol Prusa has a major solo exhibit coming to the Boca Raton Museum of Art in August. She is a professor of art at Florida Atlantic University, where she has taught for 19 years. At the BRiC event, she will explain how pre-industrial craft methods have evolved into laser etching, laser cutting and working with 3D printers and fiberglass.

Prusa, whose earliest artworks were in pencil, now incorporates fiber optics, video, laser etchings and other technologies to explore concepts of symmetry, infinity, the void and complexity of the universe in her curved, three-dimensional works.

As The Art Economist Magazine describes her work, “Carol Prusa creates a new vision of the powers of the universe in each artwork she makes. Inspired by cosmology and the natural sciences, Prusa creatively explores these practices, arriving at stunning re-interpretations of their theories.”
