Palm Beach County is a paradise for art lovers, offering a wide range of artistic attractions from outdoor sculptures to interactive exhibits. From the Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden in Palm Beach to the Mizner Park Art Festival in Boca Raton, there's something for everyone. The Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden is a must-see destination in Palm Beach. This beautiful space was created in the late 1960s when the Society of the Four Arts acquired three vacant lots with the intention of creating a public garden.
Philip Hulitar, a prominent American couturier living in Palm Beach, was invited to design and plan the garden. Today, it's a popular spot for both amateur and professional photographers. In Boca Raton, don't miss the Boca Raton Museum of Art. This museum features classic paintings, interactive exhibits, and more. If you're visiting in February, be sure to attend the annual Mizner Park Art Festival, where you can enjoy some of the museum's most outstanding works outdoors.
Afterward, take a stroll through Mizner Park's cobbled streets and explore its popular shops and restaurants. West Palm Beach is home to the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, a two-acre sculpture garden with more than 100 sculptures created by Ann Weaver Norton, one of America's most important sculptors. The garden also features a historic home and studio that were built in 1923. During peak season (October to April), visit downtown West Palm Beach and explore the City of West Palm Beach Green Market located along Flagler Drive waterfront near Clematis Street. Here, you'll find fresh produce and handmade goods from local vendors. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Administrative Services is also worth a visit. Here, you'll find a cast glass sculpture that pays homage to the Sheriff's Office's dedication and commitment to people and the community. The clubs for boys and girls at the Palm Beach County Gym (Bill Bailey Community Center) have also been transformed into a colorful community art project.
The Garden Branch Library is home to Garden Gate, an artwork designed by artist Garth Edwards that was inspired by Palm Beach Gardens' early vision that the city would become a garden city. The Palm Beach County Tourism Development features an elegant and visually striking sculpture that complements its adjacent architecture. The Palm Beach County Library Acre Branch is home to Productive Light, a luminous sculptural installation that is activated by solar energy. Finally, take a stroll to see other street art murals in the area by visiting the CANVAS Outdoor Museum mural, many of whose works are just a short walk away. If you have time, drive to Lake Worth to see more murals and stop by the Palm Beach County Cultural Council for information on everything related to art and culture.
