Palm Beach is one of the best cities in the country when it comes to fine art, and is sometimes regarded as a cultural hub of Florida for this reason. With stunning luxury real estate, a highly active community, countless events on a monthly basis and a large artist population, Palm Beach is a great place to be no matter the time of the year. However, lovers of fine art will likely want to ensure that they are in town in January, as the 20th annual Art Palm Beach will take place at the Palm Beach County Convention Center on Okeechobee Boulevard.
This year’s iteration of the event will be particularly special given this major landmark, though it does have a lot to live up to following Art Palm Beach 2016, which had roughly 85 galleries from artists representing 21 countries. Fear not, though, as more than 85 galleries will be on display in January, all representing some of the most unique and powerful artwork from the past two centuries. Everything from contemporary to modern styles will be represented at Art Palm Beach 2017, which is known from around the world for its eclectic and exceptional diversity of art.
As a note, local artists who are interested in displaying their work can indeed qualify for an exhibition of their own, though this would be a bit tricky for this year’s iteration of the event. However, if you are an artist considering taking part in Art Palm Beach, head on down this January to get the lay of the land and decide if you would like to instead get an exhibit in 2018. More information for and about exhibitors can be found through Next Level Fairs, which puts on the event each year in Palm Beach and Boca Raton.
Do not miss this opportunity to see some of the most beautiful designs, innovations, sculptures and paintings to come through Florida on an annual basis. Check out the official website for the event to see your travel and accommodation options if you are not already living in Palm Beach. Ticket prices vary, and there is a special lecture series that you can attend as well. The festivities kick off with a first view on Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. local time, then run through Sunday evening, Jan. 22, so head on down to the convention center!
