World-famous artist in Lake Worth

Outside of its aesthetic beauty, high-quality art is meant to communicate ideas and give perspective to the audience. Cuban-born artist and illustrator Edel Rodriguez, who immigrated to South Florida in the 1980s and became an art director at Time magazine in the 1990s, doesn’t shy away from telling people his ideas on politics, art and advertising. Rodriguez travels to Lake Worth on Saturday for “BiblioArte: Bridging Art & Literacy,” where artists can meet the illustrator, enjoy live mural-painting and more to celebrate arts, culture and literature.

BiblioArte: Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lake Worth Art Center, 1121 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth. Info: 561-533-7354.

Hippity hop in the gardens

Orchids, pastels and the eye-widening prospect of not having to hide dozens of eggs around the yard? It may sound like a dream, but you can experience all three this Saturday at Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens while your young ones explore more than 2 acres of trails searching for Easter eggs. Parents and grandparents can also visit the gardens and sculptures that make this organization a hidden gem.

Easter Egg Hunt: Saturday at 10 a.m. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7 for children of all ages. Advanced reservations are required by calling 561-832-5328. Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, 2051 S. Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach. Info: www.ansg.org.

SPLURGE

Russian Fire

When it comes to classical music in history, Russia really came into its own during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was during this era that names such as Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky rose to national prominence. Today, those composers are considered masters of their craft, and their music rings throughout the world’s largest concert halls. Palm Beach Symphony will pay tribute to each master in a performance titled “Russian Fire,” the company’s final concert of the season, tonight at the Kravis Center.

“Russian Fire:” Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $35. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. Info: 561-832-7469 or www.palmbeachsymphony.org.
