You might think of a mosaic as something beautiful created from many small parts.
But in Palm Beach County, MOSAIC stands for the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County’s annual “Month of Shows, Art, Ideas and Culture” celebration, held each May.
Now in its fifth year, the monthlong promotion showcases The Palm Beaches’ cultural organizations, many of which will host unique programming and provide special offers next month.
Visitors and residents alike can take advantage of these offers — whether visiting museums, theaters, science centers, botanical gardens, or other arts adventures, and enjoy local hotel packages.
Below is a sampling of institutions that are participating in this year’s MOSAIC program with special offers. For a full list of offers, as well as upcoming activities and events to enjoy during MOSAIC, visit www.MOSAICPBC.com.
