Welcome to The Society of the Four Arts! The Four Arts was originally founded in 1934 as the Civic Arts Association. In 1936, the organization changed its name to ‘The Society of the Four Arts’ and incorporated as a nonprofit with a mission to promote art, literature, music, and drama. The Four Arts has grown immensely over the years and is now Palm Beach’s preeminent cultural institution, offering a diverse array of programming such as concerts, films, art exhibitions, notable speakers, workshops, classes, and children’s programs.
