(2019 - Winter/Spring Issue)


If you plan to visit The Palm Beaches this year, grab your calendar. You’ll need it for all the events in Florida’s Cultural Capital.  

In this issue, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County—the Palm Beaches’ official arts agency—recommends several must-see cultural destinations: Downton Abbey: The Exhibition in West Palm Beach, The Satellite (also in West Palm Beach), the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum and the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

If you enjoy the popular television show, Downton Abbey, head for CityPlace in West Palm Beach before Monday, April 22. This vibrant urban residential/shopping/dining hub is hosting Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, where you can experience the painstakingly recreated house in post-Edwardian England where characters and memorable moments come alive right before your eyes.

Also at CityPlace until late-spring is The Satellite, a pop-up gallery and event space produced by the Council. It currently features Reimagine, a special exhibition of current and past exhibitions from the Council’s headquarters, along with programming from local cultural organizations. Exhibition selections include “Project Space,”  “Foundations,” “The Florida Room,” “Monochrome,” “Paws & Claws: Animals in Art,” and paintings from local artist Debra Yates.  

Through May 18, the Cultural Council is also hosting Modern Love, an exploration of this phenomenon through the eyes of 21 Palm Beach County artists. You may never think about love the same way again.

Perhaps The Palm Beaches’ most cherished historical site is the red-brick Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, a local landmark that has lit the way for mariners since 1860, making it the oldest structure in the county. Climb 105 stairs for a stunning view of the Atlantic Ocean and surrounding greenery (especially at sunset). Guests are sure to love the museum, which captures how local folks lived 159 years ago.

The world-class Boca Raton Museum of Art is running an exhibition called Imagining Florida: History and Myth in the Sunshine State through March 24. Transporting you through three centuries, from when the Seminole Nation were the only inhabitants to modern times when almost 22 million residents call Florida home, the exhibition takes you on a trip through the eyes of immortal artists and photographers such as John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Bunny Yeager, Doris Lee, Frederic Remington, Thomas Moran and Sally Michel.
