What began as an outpost for IBM’s Research and Development and the birthplace of the first IBM personal computer is now a state-of-the-art, accessible 1.7 million square foot office park that is a magnet for forward thinkers. Designed by iconic Brutalist architect Marcel Breuer, Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC) is the largest single facility office building in Florida and has been repositioned as a community destination in the heart of Boca Raton. The campus was acquired by CP Group, formerly Crocker Partners, in 2018 with the vision of transforming BRiC into the technology and life sciences hub for the Southeastern United States with unparalleled amenities. BRiC’s partnership with the Boca Raton Museum of Art is part of BRiC’s long-term vision of creating a walking art museum with exhibits throughout the miles of corridors that make up the campus in an effort to integrate art and technology into the ecosystem of the campus.

Reginald Cunningham is a prominent Washington DC-based photographer that works in the dynamic fields of concert, fashion, and activist photography. Cunningham only fully embraced photography as recently as 2017, but within just five years, his work graced the cover of British Vogue’s 2020 September issue. Additionally, he has been featured in international publications such as The Washington Post, Essence, HuffPost, Ebony, and Buzzfeed. Throughout his career, Cunningham has made his focus the celebration of Black talent. Cunningham’s most recent exhibition was titled “Framing Fatherhood,” held at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at George Washington University. Cunningham’s photos depicted families celebrating Black fatherhood as a part of the exhibition’s broader focus on addressing digital media’s influence on public dialogue and opinion surrounding the holistic representation of Black men as boys, friends, fathers, and more. Between a Master of Arts in Media + Communications, his established skill in fine art photography, and his interest in promoting revolutionary images, Cunningham has found a distinguished career path. It is a rare artist whose social activism matches the artistry.
