The Palm Beaches perform this summer; no ticket required. The Cultural Council for Palm Beach County kicked off its Summer Performing Arts Series on Saturday - virtually. The schedule includes a variety of musical genres, sprinkled with some dance as well. Each event will be hosted by WPTV’s lifestyle and entertainment reporter, T.A. Walker.
Palm Beach cherishes its arts, culture (and of course, its couture). After all, premier fashion houses have been dressing our rich and famous for a century. With the reopening of The Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach comes their current exhibition, a perfect marriage of all three.
The show, Art Couture: The Intersection of Art and Fashion, melds contemporary art with fashion design, including illustrations and clothing by well-known designers along with contemporary art inspired by iconic fashion designs.
Last week, we shared a list of cultural organizations in The Palm Beaches that are open or partially reopening for your entertainment and enrichment. Here is a historical treasure that is carefully preparing for your next visit and reopening soon! Remember to contact them directly to check out limitations or changes in operating hours, etc. ***Side note: Our Trivia Tuesday question was all about Henry Flagler's impetus to come to Palm Beach. The museum, AKA Whitehall, is the mansion that he built for his wife as part of his development of America's First Resort Destination.
As you know, with the shelter at home order, our blog has been virtually visiting various arts & cultural destinations around the county to experience their programming and bring it to you. Do you know how many organizations produce events every year here in Palm Beach County?
For our first virtual experience, we happened upon a live living room concert with Yvette Norwood-Tiger and piano accompanist Rick Moore. Ms. Norwood-Tiger, who lives locally, is an international jazz performer as well as the founder of the Palm Beach International Jazz Festival. You also may have seen her as a regular performer at the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County’s Summer Jazz Series.
Our blog’s goal is to share all that is great, special and unique about our Palm Beach paradise and its surrounding areas, in support of our member real estate agents. In addition to the obvious, weather and beaches, a big part of what makes it so great is the lifestyle.
Palm Beach County is rich in arts and culture. And it didn’t happen by chance. With the creation of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County forty years ago, Alexander Dreyfoos built the foundation for a community that benefits economically and societally through arts and culture.
