This is happening: 3 reasons to check out ArtPalmBeach


Today, ArtPalmBeach opens its annual modern and contemporary art fair, and if you didn’t get to check out Miami’s Art Basel then here are a few reasons not to make the same mistake twice.

1. A perfect night out

With a location in the middle of downtown West Palm Beach, there are plenty of things to do before or after visiting the art show. CityPlace often has live music and a visit to the new RH Rooftop Restaurant wouldn’t hurt.


2. It costs less than Art Basel

You get to enjoy art at a fraction of the price: Art Basel tickets cost $60, while ArtPalmBeach will only set you back $15.  Plus, you don’t have to worry about driving, parking or the expenses (and headache) that come along with going to the 305.


3. It’s not just pictures in frames

In today’s day and age, technology follows us everywhere, even in emerging art trends. So expect to see art that explores new video formats, virtual reality, lighting techniques and emerging technologies.
