Levinthal and Langberg are included in “A Place for Me: Figurative Painting Now” at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. The exhibition, which was curated by Ruth Erickson, spotlights painters who are particularly interested in depicting what is near and dear to them, including friends, lovers, family, studio spaces, and their homes. “A Place for Me” is at the ICA through September 5.
