This awards ceremony, co-chaired by Jean Sharf and Elizabeth Neuhoff, and produced by Andrew Kato, honors outstanding individuals and organizations for their contributions to arts and culture throughout Palm Beach County.

The Muse Awards helps hundreds of students enjoy cultural field trips which they possibly would not have the opportunity to participate in. Past field trips have included students from Diamond View Elementary school students who took a second to stop and strike a pose before entering the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum. Proceeds from the Muse Awards covered travel expenses for students from underserved communities to learn something their textbooks alone could not give them–the chance to see the history of Palm Beach County come to life right in front of them.
