Palm Beach County is home to 38 municipalities, all of which have robust arts activities going on every day. This semi-annual exhibition focuses on just one of these culturally diverse, vibrant cities. Settlement began in the late 19th century in Delray Beach which became an official city in 1927. Delray houses many of the county’s historic places such as the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum, The Delray Center for the Arts at Old School Square, Sandoway House, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens and many others of note. Artists in this exhibition capture the beauty of their home town and exemplify their own unique talents as artists of Delray Beach.

The Milagro Center is collaborating with the Cultural Council on an exhibition presenting the artwork of teens, showcasing their talents to the community. At the Cultural Council, arts education is a priority. Through the continued work of its Cultural Education Committee (CEdC), the Council is committed to ensuring that our county’s young people have the best possible opportunities to reap the proven benefits that arts and culture bring to the educational experience. As an active CEdC member and partner, the Milagro Center embodies and shares in this community work and vision for arts accessibility and equity. Viewers can expect to see artwork that represents the individual voices and experiences of Delray teens, supported through the guidance of a professional art educator from the education department of the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

The Milagro Center offers unique arts-integrated educational and cultural programs that serve as a catalyst for community collaboration, individual transformation and social change. The arts foster a spirit of entrepreneurship in teens; teaching them skills and fostering a temperament for creative success. The Milagro Center is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure the social and academic success of children through cultural arts, living values, mentoring and academic support
