O'Keeffe Building

Esther B. O’Keeffe Buildinga private nightclub modeled on the elite New York and London Embassy Clubs,

In 1947, the Four Arts purchased the Embassy Club (now the Esther B. O’Keeffe Gallery Building), which was also designed by famed architect Addison Mizner (1872-1933). Architect John Volk (1901-1984) transformed the Club’s open-air courtyard into a 719-seat auditorium and renovated other spaces to serve as art galleries and staff offices. Today, the auditorium features state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems for concerts, lectures, films, and live-streaming events. The galleries continue to feature a diverse selection of art exhibitions. In 1995, the building was renamed for Four Arts’ member Esther B. O’Keeffe as a tribute to her work as an artist. Her husband, Dr. Arthur O’Keeffe, was a cousin of the American painter Georgia O’Keeffe. The top image is the building's main entrance on The Four Arts' campus and the one below is the back entrance on Royal Palm Way.

NOTE: This building is closed to the public May-September.
