Naples Art's current show exhibits many works by the Hungarian-French artist Victor Vasarely, who is known today as a founder of the Op Art movement. Vasarely had a strong interest in science before shifting to graphic arts.

A big, new building for Naples' senior center opened a year ago.
I recently attended an event at the senior center and got a tour.
It is very impressive.
The name on the senior center is "Baker," because of a leadership gift from Jay and Patty Baker, generous local philanthropists who have supported Naples nonprofits like the hospital, a museum, a park and now this senior center.

Naples has a big population of affluent, aging retirees. Moorings Park Communities operates three campuses of "life plan communities" -- previously called continuing care retirement communities. They are proudly luxurious. The newest, Moorings Park Grande Lake, is still under construction.
I recently attended a lecture at Moorings Park Grande Lake and took a photograph down one side of the property. There is a similar number of units under construction out of the photograph on the left side. I won't mention how expensive each unit is, but Google will give you the answer.
