ELECTED OFFICIALS, CULTURAL EXECUTIVES AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS CELEBRATE THE IMPACT OF ART & CULTURE IN PALM BEACH COUNTY WITH NETWORKING, LOCAL ARTS PERFORMANCES
Nearly 50 local elected officials, cultural executives and community members gathered at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s headquarters in downtown Lake Worth Beach for a special reception during the second annual MOSAIC (Month of Shows, Art, Ideas & Culture), a month-long celebration of the arts in Palm Beach County featuring 20 cultural deals and dozens of hotel offers throughout the region.
The mixer included pop-up performances by Elizabeth Dashiell of the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival and local musician Ben Krieger, a fashion show featuring hand-crafted, upcycled designs from Resource Depot students, and a live mural painting by Glenda Green and Carl Young with the Armory Art Center that visually illustrated the economic impact of Palm Beach County’s cultural sector.
“The Palm Beaches’ cultural sector creates over 14,000 full-time jobs and contributes more than $633 million in annual economic impact,” said Dave Lawrence, president & CEO. “The arts matter – they build a stronger economy and drive tourism, unite and engage communities and enhance education at every level.”
