Member’s Preview and Annual Meeting
Thursday, September 21, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The concept behind this biannual exhibition is a focus on cities in Palm Beach County. Before development, the land that became Palm Beach Gardens was primarily cattle ranches and pine forests, as well as swampland further west. In 1959, wealthy landowner and insurance magnate John D. MacArthur announced plans to develop 4,000 acres and build homes for 55,000 people. He chose the name Palm Beach Gardens after his initial choice, Palm Beach City, was denied by the Florida Legislature, because its name was too similar to the nearby Palm Beach. A total of 14 artists will represent Palm Beach Gardens.
