First phase of West Palm’s waterfront art parks starts Tuesday



The November show, set to fill downtown and Northwood Village with murals, outdoor sculptures and an array of interactive works by internationally known artists, plans as a more lasting feature to transform under-used land along North Flagler Drive into an aesthetic treat open to visitors year-‘round at no cost.

West Palm Beach officials and art fans are scheduled to gather for the groundbreaking at 10 a.m. in Jose Marti Park, 401 N. Flagler Drive.

The first phase of the parks project will include a Kids Art Park, Chamber Park, Installation Park and murals painted on stacked shipping containers. The area stretches south from the chamber of commerce headquarters and “Darth Vader” building to Banyan Boulevard, where a section of the art park will rise near the site of the old city hall, which is slated for demolition in December.
