When it’s 20 degrees in the Northeast, daily flights from Boston, N ew York, Philadelphia and dozens of other frost-bitten cities are packed with people – more than a million of them – heading to the Palm Beaches. What’s the attraction? Great weather, great beaches, gorgeous golf courses… and sophisticated arts and culture. Academy Award-winner Estelle Parsons caught a flight out of New York this winter – so that she could appear in Palm Beach Dramaworks’ production of My Old Lady. Tommy Tune has a ticket booked; he’ll be wowing the crowd at the Royal Room in Palm Beach, one of the country’s top cabarets. Sir James Galway and his flute are returning to perform in the open air at the Festival of the Arts BOCA. And that’s just the beginning. Our opera will mount a world premiere this season. Our museums are reporting record attendance. Theatrical productions in the county are reviewed in the Wall Street Journal. With events tailored to the tastes of a diverse audience ranging from sophisticated urbanites to children craving the adventure of a day at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, the appeal of the Palm Beaches can be felt across the miles and the generations. A trio of 3,000-year-old mummies is on display at the South Florida Science Center & Aquarium. Down the street, the N orton Museum of Art has organized a groundbreaking exhibition showcasing the collection of Beth Rudin

As Palm Beach County’s officially designated agency for cultural development, the Council leads the way in nurturing, promoting and celebrating the artistic and cultural community in one of Florida’s largest and most diverse counties. So after the beach or the golf course – or even before – check out Florida’s most robust cultural calendar at PalmBeachCulture.com. You’ll find a wealth of art-infused ideas, whether you’re planning a winter vacation, a night on the town or a weekend outing with the kids. Culture has found its place in the sun® – and that place is Palm Beach County, Florida.

A WEALTH OF POSSIBILITIES

This issue of art&culture is a testament to the vibrant character of Palm Beach County’s cultural scene – and to the intriguing and talented characters that have shaped it. If, as the Spanish author and adventurer Miguel de Cervantes claimed, we are known by the company we keep, then we are indeed fortunate. Palm Beach County attracts more than two million visitors each year. It also attracts exhibitions brimming with art and artifacts from around the world. In “A Moving Experience” on page 46, we’ll give you an idea of the work involved in bringing the world’s treasures to our shores. There are plenty of homegrown treasures to discover, too!

Palm Beach Opera is garnering attention in the opera world with its innovative approach to programming, dynamic outreach efforts and world premiere production of Enemies: A Love Story. You’ll see how it’s all coming together in “Making Friends and Raising the Curtain on Enemies” on page 50.

New life is also blooming at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. On page 40, meet Lord Norman Foster, the internationally renowned architect chosen to give shape to the museum’s vision of the future. In “Spouting Off” on page 64, we give teapots their artistic due. art&culture Managing Editor Christina Wood takes us to the Everglades on page 35. And, on page 37, our “Most Wanted” department pays homage to the Kennedy mystique. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or have been calling the Palm Beaches home for decades, you might be surprised by the depth and breadth of the area’s cultural offerings. We’ve compiled a handy reference full of information on the county’s resources to guide you. To begin your journey of discovery, turn to page 77. We all have a role to play in the life of our cultural community – whether as artists, adventurers, patrons or, perhaps, purveyors. By developing our own gifts and appreciating those of others, we can ensure the continued vitality of our arts organizations and inspire the dreams that will fuel their future growth. Thank you for your company on the journey we share. I hope you will enjoy getting to know some of the Palm Beach County citizens that make our world more colorful as you wander through the pages of this issue of art&culture.

A group of wide-eyed schoolchildren will give you a fresh perspective on the Gilded Age glories of the Flagler Museum in “Beauty Is in the Eyes of Second-Grade Beholders” on page 68. Legendary photographer Harry Benson and society writer Hilary Geary Ross will introduce you to “Palm Beach People” on page 52.

Enjoy!

The arts are filling the streets of Lake Worth with energy. In “Creative Genius” on page 72, you’ll meet a trio of artists who are contributing to the revitalized economic and cultural life of the city.

Sometimes it’s all about how others see you.

art&culture’s managing editor, Christina Wood, is not afraid to get her hands dirty in pursuit of a good story. Although you’re more likely to find her at the theater or enjoying a concert, the award-winning freelance writer and editor has been known to roll up her sleeves (and, on occasion, her pant legs) to wade through swamps, explore the world of animal behavior or go head-to-head with military leaders. Scottish-born photojournalist Harry Benson arrived in America with the Beatles in 1964 and went on to become the most published photographer in LIFE magazine. He continues to photograph for major magazines worldwide and to win awards. Harry has had 40 one-man exhibitions of his work in the U.S. and Europe and is the author of 16 books. In 2009, Queen Elizabeth named him a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Well-known society writer Hilary Geary Ross has been an important part of the Palm Beach, N ew York and Southampton social circuit her entire life and maintains houses in each of those locations. She has been featured in Architectural Digest, Town & Country, W and House & Garden, among other magazines. Hilary is currently the president of The Blenheim Foundation Board and is on the board of The Palm Beach Preservation Foundation. Marilyn Bauer is an award-winning critic, writer and two-time N ational Endowment for the Arts fellow in arts journalism. She has written for most major newspapers and numerous magazines, including Art & Antiques, ARTnews, Art in America, National Geographic Traveler, Self and Harper’s Bazaar. She is the director of marketing and government affairs for the Cultural County of Palm Beach County.

Once again, in the annual U.S.News & World Report survey on America’s Best Hospitals, ophthalmologists from around the country ranked Bascom Palmer Eye Institute the best eye hospital in the United States. This honor is a great testimony to our experience and technology. More importantly, if any member of their families needed a procedure, the best eye doctors in the world would tell them to travel long distances to get here. And that makes you very lucky. Because you don’t have to.

Before launching her freelance career, Amy Woods worked as the society editor of Palm 2 Jupiter and as the editor of Notables at The Palm Beach Post, a position she held for 11 years. An experienced editor, columnist, writer and reporter, Amy’s goal is to use her experience as a journalist and skills in public relations for the benefit of our local nonprofit community. Freelance writer Joann Plockova specializes in design, architecture and culture writing – often with a social or environmental focus. Her curious nature and broad list of interests always has her on the hunt for new and important topics to cover. Among other publications, she’s written for American Craft Magazine, Conde Nast Traveller UK, The Christian Science Monitor and Green Building & Design. She has one foot in South Florida and the other in Prague. Allegra N agler’s father was an artist. From an early age, she was exposed to working artists and the creative process growing up in N ew York and developed what would become a lifelong appreciation for the arts. Today, Allegra uses her writing skills to connect with artists and the art world and is delighted to live in a region with an abundance of creative energy. Jenifer Mangione Vogt is a writer and publicist who specializes in art, finance and Italian culture. She has more than 20 years of experience in corporate and nonprofit marketing, serving art organizations such as the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Christie’s as well as Fortune 500 companies, including MasterCard International and The Bank of New York. Robert Holland is a nationally recognized advertising and magazine photographer. He also works with private clients to create realistic lifestyle imagery for private display. His work is known for its “slice of life” or “captured moment” look. His clients include South Florida families as well as some of the most recognized brands in the world.

Jacek Gancarz is a freelance and fine art photographer based in South Florida. Plucked from the confines of the Iron Curtain at an early age, he found himself in the U.S. poring over the pages of N ational Geographic and Life magazines, which fueled his passion for photography. His father presented him his first camera at the age 12. Many travels – and a B.S. from FAU – later, he went to work as a photojournalist, spending seven years with the Palm Beach Daily News. Andrea Richard is a multimedia journalist based in Fort Lauderdale. She often writes stories about quirky people, the South Florida arts scene and fun listicles meant to inform and entertain. Her previous contributions to art&culture include a story about the talented puppet master who sent an array of characters flying across the stage in a production of The Wiz at The Maltz Jupiter Theatre.

BY THE NUMBERS: 30 Never Looked So Good

The ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival in Jupiter will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in February. N amed one of the top festivals in the country by Sunshine Artist Magazine, the outdoor arts event will once again flood the Presidents’ Day weekend (Feb. 14-16) with color and creativity. More than 300 artists – and 100,000 guests – are expected to be on hand for three days of live entertainment, artist demonstrations and interactive art activities, as well as a juried exhibition of fine art and a youth art competition.

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ArtiGras.org

What do Bela Fleck and Beethoven have in common? They’ll both be featured in this year’s Festival of the Arts BOCA. For nine days beginning March 6, the Mizner Park Amphitheater and Cultural Arts Center will bask in the glow of the stars. Sir James Galway on flute and Conrad Tao on piano will come together in a celebration of Mozart. Fleck, who has won 15 Grammy Awards, will be joined by his wife, fellow banjo player Abigail Washburn. The Academy Award-winning film West Side Story will be seen as never before with a live orchestra. Stars of International Ballet, featuring principal dancers from American Ballet Theatre, National Ballet of Canada and other leading companies, will put their best feet forward. The festival’s Authors & Ideas program offers what might be its most compelling lineup yet, with a screening of the documentary Girl Rising from Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins and appearances by a number of notable authors, including Richard Ford (Let Me Be Frank With You), Pulitzer Prize-winner Thomas Friedman and Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee (The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer) to name but a few. And what could be more appropriate for the ninth annual edition of this entertaining cultural smorgasbord than a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony featuring Festival Orchestra BOCA, led by Constantine Kitsopoulos, and the Master Chorale of South Florida?

NOW SHOWING: Take 20

Over the years, the Palm Beach International Film Festival has hosted a bevy of celebrities and filmmakers, including Academy Award-winners Adrien Brody, Anthony Hopkins and Faye Dunaway, as well as Oscar-nominees Salma Hayek, Woody Harrelson and Burt Reynolds to name just a few. The brightest stars, however, may be the young filmmakers who are given opportunities, encouragement and exposure thanks to the annual event. Thousands of students enrolled in Palm Beach County’s acclaimed film and production programs have benefited from scholarships and year-round programs funded by the festival, including seminars, workshops and other opportunities to interact with working filmmakers and professionals from all areas of the industry. Many more careers and dreams may be inspired March 26 through April 2 as the festival celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Video vignettes will also present firstperson accounts that reveal the photographers’ individual styles, passions and approaches to their craft. “The exhibition underscores N ational Geographic’s history of documenting the world through photography and its ongoing commitment to supporting photographers as important and innovative storytellers who can make a difference with their work,” says Fatima N eJame, president and chief executive officer of the Palm Beach Photographic Centre. Women of Vision opens at the center in conjunction with the start of FOTOfusion, a renowned five-day festival for amateur and professional photographers that is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

SPOTLIGHT ON: Play Time

It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Mike Price Photography

Over the years, Palm Beach Dramaworks has flirted with new plays. Now in its 15th season, the West Palm Beach theater is ready for a steady relationship. The Dramaworkshop, envisioned as a lab where scripts can be developed, is the company’s new baby. “From the time Palm Beach Dramaworks was conceived, we believed that part of our responsibility was to cultivate new plays,” says PBD Producing Artistic Director William Hayes. He and his colleagues – including a number of the area’s talented actors – will fulfill that responsibility by working with both new and established playwrights on all phases of a play’s evolution – from first read-throughs to table readings, workshops and on to developmental productions in a studio-theater setting.

Good fences may make good neighbors in a Robert Frost poem. In West Palm Beach’s new Arts & Entertainment District, a free trolley does the trick. The newly formed district encompasses an inspiring collection of arts and entertainment venues, ranging from art studios and history museums to cutting-edge galleries and prestigious performing arts centers. This distinctive neighborhood is populated by at least 20 intriguing destinations – including two that are over the bridge on the island of Palm Beach. The unprecedented alliance makes it easy not only to explore the area’s rich cultural life but also to take advantage of special offers.

Born to be To see the animal kingdom through the eyes of artists living and working in Palm Beach County, head over to the Lake Worth headquarters of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, where Paws & Claws: Animals in Art is on display through Feb. 21. If sculpted birds, papier-mâché puppies and formal portraits emulating Dutch masters aren’t enough for you, consider a visit to the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, where you can see an abstract by a North American river otter or a minimalist canvas created by a gopher tortoise. The zoo’s staff work to enrich the lives of the animals in their care by ensuring that interesting activities are part of the daily routine. “We have found that many of our animals enjoy painting with canvases, non-toxic paints and positive reinforcement from their keepers to create their very own masterpieces,” says Angela Ledford, the zoo’s media relations manager. “Each painting is unique and each artist has his or her very different and unique techniques.” Mexican spider monkeys tend to work in bold strokes. The raw energy of a Malayan tiger is barely contained on the canvas. Juvenile American alligators, as any University of Florida fan can testify, prefer working in a palette of blue and orange. Animal artwork is on display and available for purchase at the zoo’s gift shop. You can also select a masterpiece from the zoo’s online gallery or “commission” a painting by selecting the animal artist, colors and size you would like.

“Sometimes, you forget that wild places are so necessary,” says Tim Wride, the William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. He sent a handful of photographers into the Everglades to remind us. Imaging Eden: Photographers Discover the Everglades will be on display March 5 through the summer of 2015. Wride is the driving force behind the exhibition. “I have a huge respect for artists because they tend to ask and answer those questions that a) we didn’t know we wanted to ask and b) we didn’t know we wanted to know the answer to,” he says with a laugh. “I’m hoping that the art becomes the nucleus around which other things can spin; those other things being conversation, understanding, dialogue, knowledge.” It’s not necessarily about saving the planet – although artists have done more than their fair share of that. In the 19th century, for example, Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Edwin Church and other artists helped inspire the conservation movement and, in turn, the creation of the national park system. “We tend to go about our lives consumed by day-to-day struggles and routines, oblivious to the marvels that abound,” Bill Chameides, dean of Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, wrote for Artful Planet, a blog highlighting the connection between the arts and sciences. “Then an artist comes along and interprets this very same world – through images, music, a story, a performance – and suddenly we are moved. Engaged.”

While painted canvases helped to spark the nation’s passion for the rugged vistas of the American west, it is photography that has introduced the public to the allure of the Everglades, serving at times as silent witness and at others as fervent advocate. “The Everglades is a subtle landscape. It’s not a Hudson River School landscape; it’s not like going to Yellowstone or going to Yosemite. There’s nothing bombastic about the place. It’s eerily haunting,” Wride says. “This is a landscape that mandates that you look at it in a way that you’ve never looked at a landscape before.” For Imaging Eden, he asked four contemporary artists (Jungjin Lee, Korea; Jim Goldberg, San Francisco; Gerald Slota, Patterson, N.J.; and Bert Tuenissen, the Netherlands) to venture into the Everglades – the only national park that Ansel Adams never photographed – with cameras in hand. “The exhibition is about art. Are there tangential benefits to be gained? Certainly,” Wride says. In fact, organizers at the Norton hope the exhibition will provide fertile ground for future conversations about what is one of the most unique, contested and vital landscapes on the planet. While geologists, botanists and a host of other scientists can tell us the hows and whys of a landscape, it is artists who shed light on its worth, leading us down paths we may never otherwise explore. “I’m a firm believer,” Chameides says, “in the power of art to slice its way into our collective unconscious and compel us to see the world as it really is and to come together to preserve and steward that which is irreplaceable and beyond value.”

MOST WANTED: THE KENNEDYS Follow in the footsteps FAMILY TIME Joseph Kennedy purchased a vacation home for his family on the island of Palm Beach in 1933 – the same year that Franklin D. Roosevelt was sworn in as the 32nd President of the United States, the 21st Amendment, ending Prohibition, was ratified and Palm Beach Junior College (now Palm Beach State College) was founded. Kennedy paid $120,000 for the home at 1095 N. Ocean Boulevard, which was designed by Addison Mizner, the famed society architect whose Mediterranean Revival Style designs left an indelible mark not only on Palm Beach but also on Boca Raton. In 1995, the family sold the oceanfront home for $5 million. In 2014, the 11-bedroom estate where JFK once held press conferences was listed for $38.5 million.

of the Kennedy clan, who have been visiting our sunny shores since Rose Kennedy first discovered the delights of a winter escape to Palm Beach County in 1911.

A REAL SCOOP JFK had something of a sweet tooth. Rumor has it that he once managed to shake off his Secret Service detail and slip away to a favorite childhood haunt, Green’s Pharmacy at 151 N. County Rd. in Palm Beach. Apparently, he never outgrew his taste for the chocolate malts that are still served at the wonderfully old-school drugstore-diner.

SHELTER FROM THE STORM The Kennedy family home on Palm Beach provided a warm escape from the stress and strain of the Cold War for President John F. Kennedy. Peanut Island – a manmade island in the Intracoastal located approximately 10 minutes from the Winter White House, as the Kennedy compound was known – is home to a once-secret bunker constructed in 1961 to shelter the president and his closest family and advisors in the event of the unthinkable. Since 1999, the site has been operated by the Palm Beach Maritime Museum. Built in an era when schoolchildren were taught to hide under their desks if a nuclear bomb was headed their way, the compact bunker, made of corrugated steel shielded by 25 feet of soil, concrete and rebar, is a thought-provoking reminder of a not-so-distant past.

And by the way… The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts honored the School Board of Palm Beach County with the 24th annual Kennedy Center Alliance for Arts Education Network and National School Boards Association Award. Palm Beach County was chosen from nominees around the country for its outstanding support of high-quality arts education.

NORMANFOSTER By Joann Plockova

Has Designs on the Norton Museum of Art

On opening day of Art Basel 2013 in Miami Beach, a striking man with a whisper of close-cropped white hair, sporting a smart creamcolored blazer, revealed an architectural plan that will double the gallery space at the N orton Museum of Art, add new indoor and outdoor amenities and reconfigure the West Palm Beach landmark to reflect its original 1941 design. Norman Foster – founder of London-based Foster + Partners, the international architecture and design firm behind the plan – needed no introduction. With buildings to his credit on six continents, offices around the world and a plethora of awards (including the acme of architecture awards, the Pritzker Prize), Lord Foster, as he’s often addressed since being honored with a life peerage in the Queen’s Birthday Honors List of 1999, is one of the world’s most renowned architects. “I do what I do for its own sake – hopefully to bring some light and joy to those who encounter and use the buildings,” Foster says. From the Hearst Tower in New York, the Reichstag in Berlin and the Viaduc de Millau – said to be the world’s tallest bridge – to London’s striking 30 St Mary Axe, aka The Gerkin, Foster is behind some of the world’s most iconic buildings. His firm, with its experience in working with museums, was the top choice for the Norton transformation. Foster + Partners had begun exploring the possibilities of a museum in a garden setting with the U.K.’s Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and continued the adventure with work on the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. “With its symmetrical layout and circulation planned around a central courtyard, [the Norton] was conceived as a gallery in a park,” says Michael Wurzel, a partner at Foster + Partners and the lead

architect on the West Palm Beach project, which will allow visitors to once again enjoy views of the Intracoastal Waterway. “The quality of the Florida light, the wonderful lush landscape and tropical plants, the extraordinary evergreen hedges that tower above you, the relationship with the water and the warmth of the people – these qualities set Palm Beach apart from the rest of the world and make this a very special project to be involved in,” says Spencer de Grey, co-head of design at Foster + Partners. “We want to capitalize on these attributes to strengthen the Norton as a stimulating and dynamic cultural focus for the community.” Three new double-height pavilions will house the education center, a 200-seat auditorium, event space, a museum shop and restaurant with garden seating. All will be unified under a metal roof canopy, which will offer shading and cast diffuse patterns of light in the courtyard below. Water will flow through a series of linear pools with fountains. A carved opening in the roof will allow the branches of a mature ficus tree to comfortably push through. “Our starting point has been to understand the local context. This has led us to discover the richness of Florida’s varieties of flora, as well as local architectural influences. The collection has also been an important influence,” says Wurzel. “Learning about the different works of art has been a fascinating process.” The time Foster spends wandering through museum galleries, contemplating the treasures they house, isn’t all work related. Art plays an important role in his life. He visits museums, art galleries and artists’ studios wherever his travels take him. “Sometimes these visits are related to projects where I am trying to link a building owner to an artist. Other times they are for their own sake – to engage with the artists directly and

to understand more about their works,” he says. Foster is also an art collector. “The works that we acquire have a resonance with our interests and passions. They are by relatively unknown younger artists, as well as more established and familiar names.” His tastes are definitely diverse. He appreciates art in its many forms, along with furniture of different ages and styles. A fascination with “the design of machines that move – aircraft, helicopters, cars, trucks, locomotives” has had a strong influence on his work (the Sainsbury Center, for example, has been described as hangar-like) and his life (he’s a licensed pilot). He is also an avid cross-country skier and a cycler. Of his spare time Foster says, “[It’s] spent sketching or reading several books at a time but the ultimate luxury is a family holiday.” The opportunity to play a part in South Florida’s continuing growth fits well with the philosophy Foster has developed during his career. “Designing and building well is less about how much you spend and more about an attitude of mind. Let me rephrase that. Quality is an attitude of mind,” he says. “It is important to invest in infrastructure – public spaces and parks, mobility and communication. Private developments should give something back to the local community.” The first phase of the Norton transformation is set to break ground in 2016 and to be completed sometime in 2018. “Florida, like anywhere else in the world that is privileged to enjoy an economic boom, should, I suggest, be investing in developments which will also benefit the generations still to come. In other words, it should be looking far into the future,” Foster says. “As a magnet for visitors, Florida should also encourage existing and new institutions for the arts.”

amoving experience By Allegra Nagler

“I

t’s wonderful to hear that someone is moved by a work of art or an exhibition,” says Irvin Lippman, executive director of the Boca Raton Museum of Art. But how do you move a work of art?

Behind the scenes of every major touring exhibition lies a nerve-wracking array of logistical entanglements that crowds gazing at art and artifacts may never consider. From mummy curses and customs snafus to runaway delivery trucks and earthquake-induced power outages, safely transporting a major exhibition from point A to point B requires patience and passion. Ancient Egyptian mummies, painted masks, coffins, jewelry, funerary items and amulets dating back centuries recently found their way to the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach. The blockbuster exhibit Afterlife:

Tombs and Treasures of Ancient Egypt, which originated at the Bolton Museum in Manchester, England, and is making its North American debut in West Palm Beach, was traveling from Asia. The majority of the 278 artifacts in the show, which had been seen by 4.5 million people worldwide, spent a month at sea on their journey from Hong Kong; the mummies and a few other rarities flew in a climate-controlled environment.

Palm Beach

P e op l e Photographs by Harry Benson Text by Hilary Geary Ross

Let’s travel to the most idyllic of places, Palm Beach, Florida. On this grand and private tour, seen through the eyes of the legendary photographer and gifted artist, Harry Benson, CBE, we have captured the very essence of this exquisite island. Harry’s quiet manners and relaxed demeanor disarm his subjects and present images of the lives and personalities that inhabit the island. His enormous creativity and vast experience draw the reader behind the scenes of this tropical paradise. The fairy tale setting, a barrier island on the Atlantic Ocean – 16 miles long with white beaches, turquoise water, dazzling private residences, immaculate golf courses, pristine tennis courts, museums, cultural centers, sophisticated clubs and  Mollie Wilmot restaurants and sunny weather – provides the glorious and glamorous backdrop for Harry’s portraits of the fascinating people who live here and truly make Palm Beach unique.

So how did this fairy tale start? Well, once upon a time, in early winter of 1878, a 158-ton Spanish barque, Providencia, sailed the storm-darkened waters off the southern coast of Florida. Her captain, perhaps giddy with Madeira wine, stood at the helm en route from the West Indies to Barcelona carrying a heavy load of hides, logwood, wine, cigars and, most importantly, 20,000 coconuts. At some point that night, the ill-fated vessel foundered on the barrier island we now call Palm Beach. It was those thousands of coconuts – or so the legend goes – that were either sold by the surviving sailors to the natives or, more romantically, scattered and sprouted into palm trees of such a density they gave rise to the island’s current name.

In time this oasis caught the eye of Standard Oil-magnate Henry Flagler, who decided it was the most perfect spot in the world to realize his dream to build a grand resort. The tycoon expanded his Florida East Coast Railway further south to ferry guests to his newly built and very grand Royal Poinciana Hotel. Opening in 1894, it was the largest and most glamorous of its type on the Lake Worth Lagoon. He also built the Palm Beach Inn that was later reborn as the Breakers Hotel, a world-class resort which sits on a vast acreage still privately owned by the Kenan family. The

quote “build it and they will come” certainly could be applied to Palm Beach, as they came in droves. It was the beginning of the island’s definition as a resort. Over the years, Palm Beach became synonymous with a heavenly climate, beautiful beaches and fascinating people. It did not take long for this sparkling little oasis to attract Colonel Edward Bradley, a businessman and philanthropist of Irish descent who opened up a storied beach club where members would not only dine royally but gamble too.

F. Scott Fitzgerald dubbed the casino “Bradley’s House of Chance.” His popular casino, with tables of chemin de fer, roulette, and blackjack added glamour and sophistication on a par with any international resort to the evening hours. The Colonel loved horses and developed a thoroughbred-racing stable, “Idle Hours Farm,” in Kentucky with a barn filled with champions: five Kentucky Derby winners, three Preakness winners and two Belmont winners! All his horses’ names started with “B.” I have deep roots in this wonderful resort, as my grandfather, the novelist Arthur Somers Roche, penned his mysteries in his Maurice Fatiodesigned house on Via Bellaria.

In fact, the Colonel named two thoroughbreds after my mother and her sister: “Browneyed Pat” for my mother and “Beanie M” for her sister, Jeanne Vanderbilt. My mother would often head down to where you could find them racing at Hialeah, where Bradley had partnered with George Widener to develop a track just a tad south of Palm Beach. In time, travelers from all over the world have found their way to settle in this sophisticated environment with its easy way of life, bright

Spouting Off Teapots get their artistic due By Andrea Richard

For more than a millennium, the influence of tea has seeped its way into cultures all across the world, with a variety of short, stout, sterling, porcelain, earthenware, elegant, awkward, elaborate and pedestrian teapots serving as the centerpiece in social gatherings.

In all that time and in all those places, tea and the object in which it is brewed and served – the teapot – have done more than simply please people’s palates and forge social bonds. They have also deeply influenced art, culture and the bottom line. The tea trade flowed from China, reaching English shores in the 17th century, where drinking it would become an event. Fortunes were made on the cultivation, production and transportation of tea. Attire worthy of the social ritual that developed around tea was soon required. Rooms were designed where tea could be sipped and served. And, of course, artisans were called on to create increasingly exquisite objects to serve the leafy brew.

“Every artistic movement grabs onto a teapot,” say James Hall, deputy director of the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. “It’s like anything else that artists can get their hands on. How can I make this more interesting, this basic pot, cup, and turn it into a beautiful creation?” In 1785, patriot Paul Revere crafted a fabulous silver teapot. Charles Frederick Worth, the designer who dominated Parisian fashion in the latter half of the 19th century, designed elaborate gowns to be worn for the purpose of drinking tea. American impressionist Mary Cassatt captured tea time in paintings, including The Tea (1880) and Afternoon Tea Party (1891). Since the 1990s, Boca Raton-resident Bonnie Seeman has been the mad hatter of teapot making in South Florida. She draws on botany and the human form to create teapots that are functional and whimsical. Her handmade glass and ceramic creations sell for $6,000 and up. Tangible art fascinates her, especially objects that can be used for a specific purpose. “I am very interested in the utilitarian object and how it can be used as a means of narration,” she says. “My work blends the macabre with the beautiful, which acts as a metaphor for the fragility and resiliency of life. By joining my interests in morphology and anatomy, I present the viewer with a detailed examination of living structures of the natural world.” All of Seeman’s creations begin life on the potter’s wheel. From there, she often stacks or alters the thrown porcelain forms. She is intrigued by surface textures and often draws on the clay with a dull pencil. Variations and embellishments to the forms are achieved by carving, stamping or adding clay or slip. “The juxtaposition of the botanical and anatomical elements can simultaneously be jarring, disquieting and beautiful,” she says. “This dichotomy also enhances the tactile quality of these works while engaging a personal interaction with the viewer.” The teapot will get its artistic due at the Norton when High Tea: Glorious

Manifestations East and West opens on Feb. 19. The exhibition, which will be on display through May 24, extensively examines tea’s influence on art and culture across the world. High Tea focuses on eight cultures – China, Korea, Japan, England, Germany, France, Russia, and the United States. Teapots – including those made by Fabergé, Meissen, the Lenox Ceramic Art Company and the Sèvres Porcelain Manufactory – are only the beginning.

Sipping tea was often regarded as a high-brow pastime, perhaps because the brew was originally sipped at religious rituals and aristocratic ceremonies. The wild rise in popularity of coffeehouses in recent times, especially in the United States, has helped to transform tea’s image into something more accessible. In Palm Beach County, you can enjoy a delightful array of tea experiences as well as a variety of tea blends.

Beauty in the Eyes of Second-Grade

Beholders By Marilyn Bauer Photos by Robert Holland

Whitehall, Henry Morrison Flagler’s glorious Gilded Age mansion on the island of Palm Beach, has had people talking since 1902, when the iconic industrialist – a key figure in Florida’s development – built the sprawling 55-room “cottage” for his third wife. Among those awed by the opulence of the estate was a writer at the New York Herald, who gushed that it was “more wonderful than any palace in Europe, grander and more magnificent than any other private dwelling in the world.”

art&culture

When a group of second graders from Palm Beach Day Academy, the oldest independent school in Florida, visited Whitehall, which is now listed on the N ational Register of Historic Places and serves as the home of the Flagler Museum, they had something to say, too. “This place is bigger than the president’s house,” one student remarked. The kids, who are among the more than 80,000 visitors who roam the halls of the Beaux Arts beauty each year, wondered at the massive marble columns, gasped at the grand double staircase and snagged selfies in Flagler’s private railcar. Railcar No. 91, built in 1886, no longer sits along the tracks built by Flagler, the founder of Standard Oil and of what would become the Florida East Coast Railway. Today it is housed in a sun-filled glass addition to the estate known as the Flagler Kenan Pavilion. With its historically restored interior and exterior, the railcar looks ready to whisk Flagler and his esteemed guests along the Over-Sea Railroad to the Florida Keys. When the Palm Beach Day Academy kids were asked how Flagler may have passed the time on a long railroad journey, one student suggested he may have listened to the radio. While it was equipped with every luxury available to the turn-of-thelast century traveler, Railcar No. 91 did not have a radio. If it did, another student was quite sure that Flagler’s program of choice would have been “Bloomberg.”

CREATIVE GENIUS

Lake Worth Redevelopment:Layout 1

The City of Lake Worth taps the power of the arts to fuel economic redevelopment and forge a unique identity. By Amy Woods Photos by Jacek Gancarz The allure of Lake Worth lies in its beautiful beaches, dynamic downtown and old-Florida feel – a tantalizing trifecta. Another enticing element is emerging as the area undergoes a renaissance-like redevelopment: in the city’s sunny patch of Palm Beach County, an authentic arts scene is blooming. Yury Darashkevich, Gareth Johnson and Annette Rawlings, pictured outside the Armory Art Center Annex, are among the artists and performers contributing to the creative energy that is fueling redevelopment efforts in Lake Worth.

“The arts are celebrated here, whether it be music or sculpture or painting,” says Joan Oliva, executive director of the Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency. “It’s amazing how many people are actually interested in and/or do art. We really have a lot of talent in the area.” Artists paint, perform, photograph, sculpt and woodwork their way around Lake Worth, sharing their creations with the community. Galleries abound throughout the city. The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County showcases the area’s dynamic cultural assets as well as the work of local artists at its historic Lake Avenue headquarters. The Lake Worth Playhouse and Stonzek Theatre offer eclectic stage shows and engaging films. The Armory Art Center Annex has a full calendar of classes, as well as exhibitions, and serves as studio space for several local artists.

The city welcomes it all.

“We’re going to invest in and support projects that involve arts and culture,” Oliva says. “Our strengths are the people in the community, many of whom are artists. Our intention is to just build upon what our strengths are and help bring more business into the city. We’re starting to see the fruits of our labor.” In 2013, the city used a portion of a $23 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to build the Urban Arts Lofts – a development featuring 12 affordable live/work units reserved exclusively for artists. The project has proven so successful that more lofts are scheduled to debut in the summer of 2016. “Most of the artists have studios on the ground floor, which they use for galleries or work space,” Oliva says. At times, these creative spaces are opened to the public. “They currently have an art walk the last Sunday of every month from 12 to 6 pm.” Violinist and composer Gareth Johnson bought one of the original units and is among those who use the ground-floor studio space to play for the public. The 29-year-old founded The Parlor Series, a concert program featuring highly accomplished musicians who not only entertain but also educate. “We let [our audiences] know about the composer and play the piece and let them ask questions,” Johnson says. “It’s kind of a close, intimate setting. It’s just a little something I started to see where it can go and what we can do with it.” About 40 audience members purchase $25 tickets a couple of times each month to enjoy a drink, nibble hors d’oeuvres and listen to professionally pedigreed players. “There’s nothing else like it,” says Johnson, a former child prodigy who now travels the world as a strings soloist. “I don’t think people are quite aware of the quality that’s going on here. I think that people from New York City and Boston and different areas, if they knew about this, they would say, ‘We’ll go to Lake Worth.’ It’s that unique.”

Worth, they’ll go to restaurants, have dinner,” he says. “One way or another, it’s a contribution to the city. It’s an advertisement of Lake Worth.” Annette Rawlings, a mixed-media specialist who has lived in Lake Worth for almost five years, says the emergence of an authentic arts scene has the potential to put the city on the map. “I know the idea is catching on,” she says. “When I go places…they’re very aware of Lake Worth and the fact that they want to attract artists here.” Artists, in turn, bring in a well-educated and well-read demographic interested in the finer things in life. Such a population wants to browse the shops, buy local art, eat, drink and more than likely return in the future. “That’s a good population to bring to any city,” says Rawlings, a veteran of visuals. “I think it helps Lake Worth grow in a positive direction and keeps it vibrant.” “When we support the arts, we not only enhance our quality of life, but we also invest in Palm Beach County’s economic well-being,” a 2012 report published by Americans for the Arts concluded. The study of the economic impact the arts have in the county backed up the belief with numbers: locally, the arts are responsible for nearly 5,800 full-time jobs generating $136 million in household income as well as $24 million in local and state taxes. If Lake Worth turns into the next SoHo, those numbers could skyrocket, Mayor Pam Triolo predicts. “The arts have proven to be economic-development tools for communities,” she says. “I like to say West Palm Beach and Palm Beach may be where fine art is sold, but Lake Worth is where it’s created.”

GARETH JOHNSON in front of the Urban Arts Lofts

Yury Darashkevich, a painter and sculptor who also lives in the Urban Art Lofts, believes Lake Worth can become a hip hub of art and culture. “When artists are settling in someplace in the beginning, it attracts businesses,” he says. “It’s kind of like a spirit, like a soul, brought to the area. It’s not only money. Art is something different. It’s communication between people.” Darashkevich is working with the Community Redevelopment Agency to organize a stroll-through-the-studios event aimed at attracting visitors to the city and introducing them to its array of artists. “If somebody comes for this artist walk and decides to spend a few hours in downtown Lake

Photo: Keith Lovett

With its outstanding climate and seemingly endless array of family-friendly attractions, Palm Beach County is the perfect place for families to have fun with arts and culture. To find the child-friendly experience that speaks to you, start by logging onto the Cultural Council’s searchable arts calendar, which provides up-to-the-minute listings of every type of event. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Palm Beach Zoo, West Palm Beach

GREAT FOR KIDS 5 AND UNDER:

GREAT FOR KIDS 6 TO 12:

Puppetry Arts Center Delray Beach Located in the Pineapple Grove/Old School Square cultural hub, the Center offers shows all year long featuring hand puppets, marionettes, music, magic and audience participation.

South Florida Science Center and Aquarium West Palm Beach With more than 50 hands-on educational exhibits, a 4,000-gallon fresh and saltwater aquarium and a digital planetarium, the SFSCA opens every mind to science.

Boca Raton Children’s Museum Boca Raton Housed in several historic buildings, the museum offers interactive centers including a bank, a post office and a replica of Boca Raton’s first grocery that will occupy a child’s attention for hours.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center Juno Beach The Center offers a Junior Veterinary Learning Lab program on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays that teaches kids about the plight of endangered sea turtles with the help of “Dr. Logger.”

Schoolhouse Children’s Museum & Learning Center Boynton Beach Spend quality time together with a variety of hands-on, interactive learning activities in the town’s historic former elementary school building. Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society West Palm Beach Kids will love the more than 1,400 animals, as well as the zoo’s colorful carousel, interactive play fountain and acclaimed bird show, “Wings Over Water.”

Children’s Science Explorium Boca Raton The hands-on science center in Sugar Sand Park brings the physical sciences – from rockets to molecules – to life for kids through permanent exhibits and ongoing special programs. Norton Museum of Art West Palm Beach Children and their parents explore themes in art in the galleries, then create their own artworks on select Saturdays in the Family Studio – or kids can drop in on Thursday nights for DIY art projects during Art After Dark..

Beth Rudin DeWoody, The Triumph of Love: Beth Rudin DeWoody Collects will be on display at the Norton Museum of Art Feb. 8 through May 3. Photo by Harry Benson

Beth Rudin DeWoody is a distinguished and distinctive art collector and generous patron of the arts. The part-time West Palm Beach resident is internationally recognized for her knowledgeable choices and awareness of the new and emerging genres of art and artists. “I look to the past as much as the future and just collect what speaks to me,” she says. “I don't worry about trends or genres.” Her advice to collectors is simple:

“ Look, look, look. Join a museum group and get to know the curators and go with them to galleries. Trust your eye and remember your tastes will change as you refine your eye. Get to know the artists! And most of all have fun!
