We love a new cultural experience! Discover the collection of art installations, murals, galleries, artist studios, and cultural centers in Delray Beach through the Delray Beach Art Trail. The diverse and exquisite artwork seeks to stir the public imagination and shed light on the city’s history.
“The purpose of Delray Beach Art Trail is to prominently share the breadth and depth of artwork and culture that Delray Beach offers, inviting the community and visitors from around the world to discover hidden gems that secure the city’s place as a dynamic arts destination in South Florida,” said Laura Simon, Executive Director, Delray Beach DDA. Delray Beach is exploding with cultural adventures, now is the time to explore the art scene.”
