The art scene is flourishing in Palm Beach County, due in part to the largesse and vision of local businessman Alexander Dreyfoos. His passion for art and culture has guided us since the 70’s when he founded the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. His namesake, the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, is a public school where budding teen artists hone skills in many media. But the faculty that instruct those students will get the gold stars while school’s out this summer.
Those teachers (over three dozen) will be the feature of an art exhibition in the main gallery of the Cultural Council from May 25 through August 18. According to the Cultural Council website, Educators and Artists “honors each artist’s commitment to the students who continue to thrive under their guidance.”
The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County is located in the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building at 601 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth. The galleries are free and open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
