After nearly 17 years in South Florida, Leon M.

Stephanie Krulik

The Broward Cultural Division and the staff of Cultural Quarterly were saddened to learn of the recent death of Stephanie Krulik, a long-time contributor to this magazine. Stephanie was adept at crafting intriguing and compelling profiles of artists, authors and other creative souls.

A prolific freelance writer, she was the author of "Interrupted Lives: A Holocaust Remembrance." We send our deepest condolences to Stephanie’s family and dedicate this edition of Cultural Quarterly to her memory.

Rachel Galvin

Rachel Galvin

With over ten years of experience under her belt, Galvin has written about a bit of everything. But her passion for the arts has led her to focus on fine art, culinary art, public art and the performing arts. She has written for over 35 local publications, including “CitySmart Magazine,” “Palm Beach Illustrated,” “Capture Life,” “Art of the Times,” “,” “The Sun-Sentinel,” “The New Times,” “The Forum” and elsewhere. This Boca Raton resident was first published at the age of six and has used the power of the pen not only for the media but also for writing screenplays, books, press releases, websites and poetry.

This History major, who graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder, included in her studies Art History, which she pursued in part in Italy for five weeks, specializing in medieval art. She is excited to write for The Cultural Quarterly and have a chance to highlight the work of talented local artists.
She also is on the Historical Advisory Committee for Coral Springs.

Her right-brained mentality has led her to pursue the creative arts also through acting, taking a lead in numerous local independent films, including some recently shown in local theaters or in production, such as the Sci-Fi spoof “Elixir,” the feature film/ TV series "Lucky Streak & the Crime Fighters” and short films like “A Life Worth Living,” “Intersect” and “The Delivery…”

Rachel has also written a book on the acting industry called "Basics of the Biz" and has her own award-winning online radio show interviewing filmmakers.
