Palm Beach’s Visual Arts History

Palm Beach’s Visual Arts History

It’s easy to see that the vibrant colors of Palm Beach Island, with its beautiful tropical plants, mature trees, and the sparkling waters of the Atlantic ocean, must appeal to artists. We are excited to hear that local resident Deborah Pollack’s book “ Palm Beach Visual Arts”,  has been released. “The first book to concentrate on the town’s visual arts history. Packed with 204 color images, the  book covers the 1880s to 2015 and encompasses the artists, society photographers, collectors, galleries and cultural organizations that shaped the town”, writes Jan Sjostrom in her article in the Palm Beach Daily News Sunday January 29, 2017. Quoting Deborah Pollack from her statement in the article, “We have a lot to be proud of” and “Our visual arts heritage is stunning.” We couldn’t agree more. It is truly remarkable how many areas, ranging from the fine arts, to fashion and architecture, Palm Beach’s history has had an impact on. We are very fortunate to call this beautiful, tropical oasis our home.
