Party cycle: Boynton Beach residents see art on wheels


Boynton Beach offered a new way of touring the city’s art work last weekend. The city offered free cycle party tours.

About 20 cyclists toured the Albert on the Avenue exhibit. Even the artist, Albert Paley, came along for a ride.

Tours were offered between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday in conjunction with the grand opening of Boynton’s new apartment and retail complex 500 Ocean at Federal Highway and Ocean Avenue.

The tour covered five blocks along East Ocean Avenue and showcased five of Paley’s metal sculptures, plus his 40-foot permanent sculpture at 500 Ocean called “Cavalcade.”

The city requires all new developments have a piece of public art paid for by the developer. Cavalcade is valued at about $300,000, said Debby Coles-Dobay, the city’s public arts manager.

It is the tallest piece of public art in Palm Beach County, she said.

Cyclists were picked up at the Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center and at the intersection of East Ocean Avenue and Southeast Fourth Avenue. They sipped Jalapeño Honey Blonde from Boynton Beach-based brewery NOBO Brewing Company , according to a news release.
