Sea-ing life clearly is easy when you are in Palm Beach. Our 47-miles of coastline are crystal clear, warm and teeming with sea life. The Atlantic Ocean is wide open with opportunities at beach parks up and down the coast. Investigate tidal pools, snorkel in the shallows, or dive the many reefs and wrecks just off the coast.
The Armory Art Center reopened it doors recently for some “limited space” in-person classes for kids. Through August 7, your Junior and Teen artists (6-18) can attend Summer Camp on campus as well as virtually! Mediums include digital, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture and costume design. For your 4-5 year olds, virtual classes only are available from home. Although the gallery remains closed at this time, the Armory Art Center has designed these class offerings to follow CDC guidelines. But you don’t have to be a kid to join the fun!
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.
NOTE: this isn’t a weather report! The South Florida rainy season kicked off here on June 1, but Mother Nature saw fit to get started early and lay it on heavy. Tropical Storms Arthur & Bertha both hit the second half of May and Cristobal has dumped days and days of rain on our area starting June 1. Now that the storm is clearing and destinations are reopening, it’s time to talk about some of the great things to do outdoors in The Palm Beaches.
“I have created a mood, combining the sculptures with the trees, planting and birds, water also helps…I hope that visitors, even those from far away, will find this sculpture-nature garden a deep refreshing.” Ann Weaver Norton
Today’s virtual visit provided serenity and solitude. We are not proud of the fact that we have never visited the beautiful Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. After all, they are only down the road in Delray Beach. So we decided to see what virtual tours they might have available.
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 next virtual cultural experience, we decided to visit the zoo - Sydney the New Guinea Singing Dog to be exact. We took a one-minute walk around the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society with her as she visited some friends in the Florida Wetlands section of the Zoo.
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.
