Dear Four Arts Members and Friends,
We wish to extend our deepest appreciation to our community for their continued patience, understanding, and unwavering support during the Covid-19 pandemic. As always, the staff here at the Society of the Four Arts sends our best wishes for the health and well being of everyone during these difficult times.
The Four Arts Gardens are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting. Please note that restrictions are in place. Click here for more info.
While in the gardens, please stop by the Pannill Pavilion to see our newest exhibition, Philip Haas’ Four Seasons! These four sculptures will be on display until December 31, and are inspired by the paintings of Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526/1527-1593). We hope these works offer our members and visitors a signal of joy and optimism as we reopen and recover from the Coronavirus pandemic.
