Theater and Performing Arts

Art in Public Places

Art complements public buildings, parks, and plazas and creates a sense of place. Art in public places stimulates cultural interaction, education, and economic development. Funded through a one-percent public art fee, public art is integrated into the architecture, infrastructure, landscape, and greenways throughout Boynton Beach and Palm Beach County.

Experience these unique places in person or through a virtual tour on the Art in Public Places site.

Kinetic Art in Boynton Beach

Boynton Beach is home to the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium. The event comes every 2 years, but the art stays here for all to enjoy. Stroll through our little downtown to enjoy these outdoor art installations.

Murals

All over the state, from small towns to big cities, blank walls are doubling as artists’ canvases, sprouting scenes of Florida’s agricultural and pioneer heritage and serving as giant art canvasses.

The art of the mural is booming in the Sunshine State. A new tourism industry of guided walking and biking tours are offered to explain the meaning and the movement. Murals are powerful ways to tell the story of a community or to simply explore an artist’s vision. Murals are accessible to everyone. No museum ticket is required.
