The carefully selected presentation will feature all forms of contemporary art including painting, sculpture, photography, design, fine art glass, video and installations from modern art to new cutting-edge artists. Art Palm Beach will offer the community an extensive lecture and panel series from some of the art world's leading experts. To enhance collector's art fair experience, Art Palm Beach will continue its commitment to support major art installations by conceptual artists and introduce a curatorial exhibition program by elected curators.
