Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture

Programs: Artistic programming consists of art exhibitions, concerts, films, metropolitan opera, and lectures. Each year the society of the four arts presents a full season of notable program in each of its four designated mission areas: music, drama, literature and the visual arts (painting, sculpture, and architecture). Concerts, usually presented on wednesday evenings, and sunday afternoons, attract enthusiastic audiences to programs by the world's leading musicians in diverse performances of classical, jazz, blue grass, and more. Recent art exhibitions in the society's esther b. O'keeffe gallery explored impressionism, japanese art deco, maritime art, photography to name a few. Art films and memorable hollywood movies are shown on friday afternoon and evenings; each season's full schedule of live hdtv broadcasts from the metropolitan opera are offered on saturdays. Many exhibitions and concerts are accompanied by lectures and gallery talks, and the society's multi-acre gardens - botanical display gardens and a two-acre sculpture garden - are open to the public year-round, free of charge. Attendance for the events was 47,380. For the fiscal year ending june 30, 2015, the following events were provided:exhibits (2)o'keffe speaker series (14)concerts (18)metropolitan opera (15)bolshoi & nutcracker (5)ntl (6)films (17)

since the town of palm beach has no public libraries, the society's two libraries - the king library for adults and a separate, superbly equipped children's library, serve, in effect, as the town's "official" libraries. Both are open to the public at no charge (adults pay a small fee for borrowing privileges); both present a full season's schedule of events: story hours for children, plus celebrations of special events like national fire prevention week, when palm beach's fire trucks and firefighters visit the children's library; author visits, book signings, poetry readings, lectures, book discussions and other events for adults. Attendance for the year was 56,067. The following events and activities were provided:children's library (214)exhibits (1)king library (91)

The presentations range widely in subject matter: ongoing classes on classical music, opera, literature, art, watercolor painting, sculpture, cookery and flower arranging; one time lectures on a wide variety of subjects. Designed to attract a broad audience, the campus on the lake has won wide praise for the variety and depth of its programs. Attendance for the year was 8,942.
