Important Artist Survey




We are reaching out to share some exciting news for our local cultural sector. The Cultural Council for Palm Beach County invites local creative professionals across all disciplines and representatives of cultural organizations to participate in its new Cultural Sector Needs Assessment survey, which opens online on March 15, 2022. The anonymous survey will be conducted by Decision Support Partners and supported by Mosaic Group.

The timing of the survey is critical, as our county’s cultural sector emerges from a $360 million loss in economic activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Results from the survey will help the Cultural Council understand the sectors current needs and create future plans that support its continued recovery. Respondents must live or work in Palm Beach County.

The survey is open only until April 1, takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and is available in Spanish and Creole. I invite you to join The No More Starving Artists Foundation and let your voice be heard. Please visit https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/6744836/CCPartner to begin the survey.

Thank you for your continued support of our cultural community.

Tracy Guiteau Selected as The 37th Artigras Fine Arts Festival Commemorative Poster Artist



 WEST PALM BEACH ARTIST TRACY GUITEAU SELECTED AS

THE 37th ARTIGRAS FINE ARTS FESTIVAL
COMMEMORATIVE POSTER ARTIST


 
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida – With her passion for art guiding her, this year’s ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival commemorative poster artist Tracy Guiteau has forged an impressive collection of work which includes being hand-picked by top tennis player Naomi Osaka and iconic athlete LeBron James’ digital media company for an art collaboration during Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
 
“I'm grateful and honored to be chosen as the ArtiGras poster artist this year,” said Guiteau, who lives in West Palm Beach and has been showing her artwork at shows for a few years, but this will be the first time she has been selected as the official poster artist for an event. “This will expand my artistic perspective with new experiences as well as to offer important representation that will encourage artists within our community to pursue their artistic vision.”
 
The commemorative poster is based on her colorful-acrylic painting title “Blossoming You” which was born from Guiteau experiences during the last two years.
 
“The idea for the poster came from experiencing the pandemic alone,” said Guiteau, who has many geographical and cultural influences in her work from her own Haitian heritage as well as her experiences studying art across the country and abroad. “The journey of " Blossoming You" into who you are is embedded with obstacles and hardship, but overcoming each struggle reveals new growth.”
 
Guiteau didn’t always think being an artist was going to be her profession, until one day a math teacher recommended that she follow her artist spirit after noticing her schoolbooks brimming with drawings. After graduating from the New World School of the Arts High School in Miami, she pursued a degree from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her passion for art has led her to many adventures including being exhibited internationally and at Miami Art Basel.
 
Patrons of ArtiGras will be able to meet Tracy Guiteau and buy the official poster at the 37th ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival presented by Hanley Foundation and produced by Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce. The festival will run from February 19-20 at the Gardens North County District Park in Palm Beach Gardens. The outdoor arts event showcases a juried exhibition of outstanding fine art along with activities which include artist and chef demonstrations, the Baptist Heath Youth Art Competition Gallery and the Amazon ArtiKids Zone. Tickets are only $11 per day with advance purchase and children 12 and under are free. More information can be found at artigras.org.
