This month, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County debuts “Made in Delray Beach,” an installation featuring masterpieces by 17 artists who either live or work (or both) in this vibrant locale. Founded in the late-nineteenth century, Delray Beach became an official city in 1927 and evolved to be one of Palm Beach County’s most eclectic and artistic municipalities. Opening September 11, “Made in Delray Beach” will feature two- and three-dimensional works, including sculptures by Abbey Funk and Jeff Whyman and paintings by Roxene Sloate and Ralph Papa, to name a few. All artwork will be available for purchase, meaning guests have the opportunity to imbue their own homes with a piece of Delray Beach.
- On Thursday, September 10, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County will host an opening reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Guests will be treated to live entertainment by Delray Beach-based Lina and the Blue Collective, shop the wares from Trunk Show Artists’ LizKat Designs and Smoothing Remedies, and refreshments. Admission to the preview party costs $20—free for members. To reserve a spot, click here.
- “Made in Delray Beach” will be on display September 11 through October 31. For more information, visit palmbeachculture.com.
