New 10-Day Arts And Cultural Series To Be Held In Downtown West Palm Beach

Inspired by World Art Day on April 15, CityPlace in West Palm Beach will host its inaugural Art Affair from April 6 to 15.

Art Affair will take place in West Palm Beach and is a 10-day series of arts and cultural events, including the eighth annual Downtown West Palm Beach Arts Festival on Rosemary Avenue, as well as live demonstrations, tenant events and artist talks.

The event will also honor Steed Taylor’s mile-long street tattoo called Genii Loci, the launch of an art tour and the unveiling of ASSEMBLAGE: An Organically Grown Exhibtion on the first floor of Culture Lab.

From April 7 to 8, Rosemary Avenue will host an outdoor art showcase, featuring more than 100 artists’ tents, arranged like a gallery with all mediums of fine art. The free, outdoor event takes places from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.

Art Affair will also offer guests a 90-minute walking art tour of downtown West Palm Beach, featuring installations and murals created by global artists. The tour begins and ends at Hilton West Palm Beach and although it is being launched during Art Affair, more dates are to be added throughout the year.

Other events include a Q&A with artist Carole Feuerman; two live painting projects and a workshop by Frankie Cihi; meet-and-greets with Ioanna Pantazopoulou and Stephen Vitiello; the opening of Armory Art Center Experience; “Conduct Us” performance by the Palm Beach Symphony; and a Dreyfoos School of the Arts open mic night.
