Starting August 26, visitors to the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County will get the first look at new and unseen work by 42 talented artists from the Armory Art Center. All artists in this show, Selections from the Armory Art Center, are current faculty members at the Center.
“The Armory Art Center is a special place for Palm Beach County artists and for the Cultural Council,” said Nichole M. Hickey, manager of artist services at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. “After a group of inspired citizens saved the historic art deco Armory building in West Palm Beach’s Flamingo Park neighborhood, the Cultural Council assisted in creating the Armory Art Center, which opened to the public in 1986. The Armory Art Center continues to inspire the creation and experience of art in our community.”
