About the Museum
Founded in 1936 to offer quality cultural programming to the growing resort town of Palm Beach, the Society of the Four Arts hosts a variety of activities for the local community, including concerts, films, educational programs, art exhibitions, and notable speakers. Its campus is home to the Esther B. O'Keeffe Gallery, which hosts rotating art exhibitions and includes a 700-seat auditorium; the Palm Beach County King Library; the Mary Alice Fortin Children's Art Gallery and children's library; as well as an administration building and gardens.
The Four Arts Botanical Garden includes fruit trees, a rose garden, a jungle garden, a Chinese garden, and a variety of plant species suitable for a sub-tropical climate. The adjacent Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden displays bronze figurative sculptures; its centerpiece is a paved quartzite plaza with an octagonal fountain. The sculpture and botanical gardens are open 7 days a week.
