Palm Beach’s Art Wave

The pandemic has brought event cancellations around the globe, and major art fairs like Art Basel in Miami are no exception. But just 70 miles north in Palm Beach, art galleries with clientele from Manhattan and the Hamptons have migrated with their buyers to the island, as northerners have flocked to Florida in droves. Tighter knit and less spread out than its neighbor to the south, dealers and collectors alike have found the island to be the perfect art destination. New transplants such as Acquavella along with old faithfuls like Findlay Galleries have now established Palm Beach as a major new player in the art world. Already famous for its high-end shopping, renowned dining, and year-round beach life, Palm Beach’s new art wave only adds to the island’s appeal for younger families and businesses looking to relocate.
