a warm welcome

It’s so wonderful to meet you, art&culture readers! My name is Dave Lawrence, and I’m excited to join you as the new president and CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. It’s been just two months since I’ve made the long trek from my former home in Indianapolis, and already I’m impressed with the passion this community has for its arts and culture. In fact, that’s exactly why I decided to take this position. I do have a bit of a confession to make: This issue of art&culture magazine is my “cheat sheet” for the upcoming season—and I am so, so thankful for it. To have a full calendar of cultural things to do, in-depth interviews to read, and stunning photography to enjoy is an invaluable resource as I learn…

mastering their craft

Delray Beach’s new Arts Warehouse was created to help fledgling artists’ dreams come true—and manager Jill Brown is like the incubator’s mother hen. “We want this building to shine and for the artists here to shine,” says Brown, who joined Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency in June 2017 after launching many education-based arts programs in North Carolina. The 15,000-square-foot complex, which opened in February, includes a gallery and studio space for 26 painters, collage-makers, photographers, sculptors, and filmmakers. It also offers workshops to help the artists hone skills like budgeting, self-branding, and marketing. Here, Brown talks about the new cultural hub. What is the primary goal of the Arts Warehouse in Delray Beach? JB: We want to help emerging to mid-level artists acquire the business skills they will need for long, successful…

supporting the arts

At first glance, $2.6 million is a solid chunk of change—and then the confetti settles. This is the statewide budget proposed by the State of Florida for the nearly 500 arts and cultural organizations recommended for funding by the Division of Cultural Affairs. A supposed lifeline for many of these organizations, the sum offers few options beyond canceling free programs for children and the underserved, cutting jobs, and, in some cases, even closing permanently. “For anyone to say they don’t value [art and culture] is to say you don’t value Mom and apple pie,” says Bill Parmelee, CFO at Oxbow and vice-chair of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. So the question naturally lends itself: Does Florida value art and culture? Of its $88.7 billion state budget for 2019, only $2.6…
