Navigating through art is one thing, but navigating to art shouldn’t have to be as intricate.

During the 13th annual Palm Beach Fine Craft Show, Uber will be giving first-time users a free ride to or from the exhibit at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

To receive a complimentary ride of up to $20, users should enter the code “FINECRAFT” after downloading the app.

With more than 10,000 guests expected to attend the show Feb. 26 through Feb. 28, one can understand why the collaboration is necessary. After all, who wants to fight for a parking spot or wait for valet? 

"Our aim is to come up with ‘an easy parking option’ for our client's patrons and special guests, one that would cater to those who don't have a chauffeur and prefer not to deal with valet parking or self-parking. Uber was a natural complement," said Maribel Alvarez, founder of Altima Palm Beach, the public relations firm that initiated this partnership.

Moreover, Uber will offer a concierge service at the event to assist inquiring guests and create a more hands-on experience.

“It's important to us that the chairs, committee members, their guests, as well as our show patrons have a seamless experience. The ease and the convenience of knowing they can walk out when they are ready and have a car waiting for them is important to us," said Elizabeth Kubie, director of the Palm Beach Fine Craft Show. 

Featuring everything from sculptures to ceramics to mixed media, the Palm Beach Fine Crafts Show spotlights our modern Michelangelos and Rodins. The event presents a broad range of pieces that can be enjoyed by both connoisseurs and amateurs. 

“Head to Toes,” an invitation-only ceremony, will kick off the exhibit on Friday, Feb. 26. The reception will benefit the Glades Academy Foundation, the Center for Creative Education and Shuzz Foundation—three local foundations whose works centers on expanding the arts and education.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $14 for senior citizens. Children under 12 are free.
