If you've had enough of the beach or pool, tired of playing tennis or golf, and don't want or can't afford anything on Worth Avenue, then make time for a trip to the Society of the Four Arts. The stunning Sculpture Gardens alone will destress you for weeks. From the Chinese Garden to the Rose Garden to the Moonlight Garden... More

Our concert was so wonderful ......moderately priced...free parking...and then this incredible garden ....orchids growing in the trees....beautiful art....just breathtaking. An oasis to which we shall return many times. Pure escapism from the current insanity.

It was a very sunny warm day and we needed a great outing. The Garden has a Moon Gate which had a wrought iron 'fence' preventing you from getting through. Like a Chinese garde there wwere many windows to view the formal gardens further away. A relaxing hour, including the pleasant seating before exitiing.

The Four Arts Gardens are stunning. & I cannot believe there is Free entry. In my area we have to pay admission for everything everywhere. As a Master Gardener, I've toured many gardens in many places ~ & this one is truly unique & memorable. Seven society ladies & one gentleman designed the original gardens in the 1930s. The exquisite... More

My wife coaxed me into visiting the park operated by the Society of Four Arts - Music, Art, Literature and Drama, open to the public, in downtown Palm Beach. There is a reading library, meeting hall and a series of gardens meticulously maintained. Plenty of places with comfortable seating to relax and reflect. The library building is closing soon for...

Multi-faceted living museum. Talks, Art shows, Music, Gardens. Every time we go we learn something new. Always something on the docket. .Easy parking, a true Palm Beach Gem. The Gardens alone are worth checking out. .

PROS: These sculptures exceeded my expectations. Many were truly stunning and extraordinary. (no entrance fee/free) CONS: The signage was off, only one or two of the sculptures had info about the artist. We didn't know whose work it was, which is not a horrendous crime, except us Culture Vultures like to know these things.

The Society of the Four Arts has a lovely expanse of gardens that are close to both the Intercoastal Waterway and the ocean. There is an eclectic collection of sculpture that fits into a series of garden rooms, along with water features, and a Japanese garden. It is a serene place to visit, to sit and be contemplative, or simply... More

Enjoyed the Neuberger Art Collection 'When Modern was Contemporary'. They have a good staff, and the facility shows well. The statues I like almost as much as the gardens. I am looking forward to future exhibits.
