The Society of the Four Arts was founded in 1936 and the main goal of the society was to offer quality cultural programming to the growing community of Palm Beach.
Every year, the Society of the Four Arts features cultural programs, art exhibits, concerts, notable speakers, films and much more. The Four Arts is located on Royal Palm Way and has beautiful sculptures, two libraries, a state-of-the-art educational facility, a botanical garden and plenty of calendar events throughout the property’s four buildings.
Each of the four buildings houses different things. The Esther B. O’Keeffe Gallery Building was designed by the famous architect Addison Mizner and is home to the art exhibits and top of the line auditorium used for guest speakers, concerts and films.
The King Library features a collection of more than 70,000 publications, DVD’s and other media. The library serves as the town library of Palm Beach. There is also a children’s library located on the fourth floor of the John E. Rovensky building and features children’s activities and story time throughout the year.
The Dixon Education Building is the newest building on the property and is home to the cultural education programs. The final building is the Four Arts Botanical Gardens which showcases seven demonstration gardens to show all the different styles of landscaping and plants in South Florida. The Sculpture Garden is located next to the Botanical Gardens and has become the top destination for locals and visitors on Palm Beach. The garden is open seven days a week and is free to visit.
