CULTURAL COUNCIL BIENNIAL 2015

Cultural Council Manager of Artist Services, Nichole M. Hickey, says “The works of 62 artists were chosen because they represent what is happening in the art scene right now. The diversity of talent in The Palm Beaches is remarkable and the juried process allows the Council to cast a wider net and exhibit artists who have not yet been shown here.” The Biennial show is free and open to the public.
