WPBF: Lake Worth unveils arts hub plan

The arts initiative is a collaborative effort with the Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

“We like to think that here is where the artists live and work. I kind of like to call it where Key West meets SoHo,” said Mayor Pam Triolo.

The arts and culture master plan was funded by a grant from the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin counties.

For 18 months, they have researched how to best promote and support local artists and encourage cultural growth downtown.
