Abundant outdoor experiences
Ready to get down in the great outdoors? The temperate breezes of Palm Beach County welcome you in May, along with an incredible assortment of gardens and public art installations that make our destination. In West Palm Beach, environmentally-minded MOSAIC guests will enjoy 50 percent off admission to Mounts Botanical Garden and its “Washed Ashore: Art to Save the Sea” exhibit, which features large-scale, colorful animal sculptures all created with recycled trash found in the ocean.
Looking for something bigger? CityPlace will be hosting a Walking Art Tour highlighting all of the incredible murals that decorate Downtown West Palm Beach, and are offering $5 off admission for MOSAIC guests. Just a few miles south, the City of Boynton Beach Art in Public Places program will be hosting a free tour of “Albert on the Avenue,” an outdoor exhibition featuring the work of celebrated sculptor, Albert Paley. MOSAIC guests will receive a free Paley plein air print at the end of the tour—how cool is that?
Animals and science, oh my!
Did you know that two of the most-visited locations in The Palm Beaches happen to be right next to each other? For a day (or an entire weekend) of family fun, MOSAIC is appropriate for everyone! Take your Culture Coupons to the Palm Beach Zoo, which saves you $5 off regular admission*, and see an incredible array of exotic animals, grab a bite to eat and take part in a show. Then, head to the nearby South Florida Science Center & Aquarium for educational (and exciting!) experiences for the whole family, including the center’s 10,000-gallon Aquariums of the Atlantic, the Marvin Dekelboum Planetarium and a newly-renovated observatory for stargazers young and old. Your Culture Coupons are good for free child admission with the purchase of adult admission, so parents can enjoy science and save at the same time!
Pitch-perfect performances aplenty
For those who prefer show over tell, the month of May is positively packed with performances that’ll leave you speechless. The world-class Kravis Center for the Performing Arts is offering discounts to MOSAIC guests that purchase tickets online for “Always and Forever: An Evening of Luther Vandross Starring Ruben Studdard” on May 13 or comedian Terry Fator on May 12. You can also hear the next generation of voices during the “Why We Sing” performance from Young Singers of the Palm Beaches on May 20, and receive a free gift with your Culture Coupon when you arrive.
Fans of groundbreaking theatre can purchase 2-for-1 tickets to the Palm Beach Dramaworks production of “Equus” from May 18 to 31 with a Culture Coupon, and enjoy a night on Clematis Street, one of Palm Beach County’s most famous downtown destinations. Or, head down to Delray Beach’s Arts Garage for 2-for-1 MOSAIC tickets to concerts all throughout the month of May, right in the heart of the city’s Pineapple Grove arts district.
Art all around you
Visual art-lovers, rejoice! There’s no place in the world quite like The Palm Beaches when it comes to sophisticated arts and culture, and MOSAIC offers you to explore it all at a fraction of the cost. The incredible Cornell Museum of Art at Old School Square in Delray Beach is letting Culture Coupon-holders (and a guest!) into the building for free throughout the month of May, so take a friend with you and enjoy exhibitions, a gift shop and more. Palm Beach Photographic Centre in West Palm Beach invites MOSAIC guests to participate in select photography workshops, at half-price, and a free poster for those who visit their museum in May.
Travel to Downtown Lake Worth to visit the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to view our galleries, featuring rotating exhibitions highlighting the work of local artists, browse the Roe Green Uniquely Palm Beach Store, and show your Culture Coupon for a complimentary gift bag. Admission is free, as always, so come by and say hello!
