Schedule your season — with our help


It’s almost the weekend — time for the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to share with you the best of what our community has to offer. Each week, you get three ideas — one that’s free, one that’s affordable and one that’s a splurge.

Your “3 to See” cultural curator is Rena Blades, president and CEO of the Cultural Council.

Celebrities and photography intersect

Nowadays, people often associate celebrity photography with the act of trying to score a selfie with a movie star, but that endeavor pales in comparison to the art itself. Shutterbugs such as Harry Benson, Clive Arrowsmith, Roy Schatt, Arthur Elgort, Gered Mankowitz and more changed the world with their photographs, painting personalities through framed form. This week, you can see some of the most famous of these photos (including prints of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Sammy Davis, Jr.) on display at Holden Luntz Gallery as part of the “All The World Is A Stage” exhibition.

“All The World Is A Stage”: On display through Jan. 20. Holden Luntz Gallery, 332 Worth Ave., Palm Beach. Info: 561-805-9550 or www.holdenluntz.com

Say ‘Good grief’ with Charlie Brown

Time to do the Snoopy dance and head to Kravis Center for the Performing Arts this weekend, because the Peanuts gang is comin’ to town! “A Charlie Brown Christmas Live On Stage” is the official adaptation of Charles Schulz’s 1965 animated TV special, complete with the tiny tree and Vince Guaraldi’s jazz score. Instead of sitting through commercials, bring the little ones to see Charlie Brown and the rest discover the true meaning of Christmas right in front of their eyes.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage”: 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday. Tickets start at $18. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. Info: 561-832-7469 or www.kravis.org

SPLURGE

Jazz for the holidays

For those hepcats who prefer the Duke Ellington version of “The Nutcracker” over a full symphony, there’s a special treat in store for you Friday and Saturday night. Jazz recording artist Nicole Henry hits the Arts Garage stage with her ensemble for a holiday-themed performance entitled Set for the Season. This show, coupled with Arts Garage’s BYOW (bring your own whatever) policy, makes a perfect excuse for date night just in time for Christmas.

Set for the Season: 8 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets start at $30. Arts Garage, 94 NE Second Ave., Delray Beach. Info: 561-450-6357 or www.artsgarage.org/jazz/
