Art Synergy is the unique countywide movement of artists, businesses, and civic leaders committed to unifying and promoting the diverse culture of Palm Beach County’s and South Florida’s vibrant arts community.
We strive to broaden the education and culture of our children and youth through the arts via joint parent/child experiences.
In early 2013 a group of artists got together and created a think tank. Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the think tank was a forum for local artists of all kinds to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.
The first initiative was to tackle was a program of events to coincide with Art Palm Beach; in hopes that the local scene could benefit from the popular art event much like Miami has benefitted from Art Basel. Soon it was named ART SYNERGY and took shape.
ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, and initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County (to name a few), ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward.
Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President, and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community. Volunteers and board members are always welcome. To volunteer click here.
