For more than 70 years, The Society of the Four Arts has been the cultural destination of Palm Beach, providing concerts, lectures, films, art exhibitions and more to the community. Through the support of our donors, members, and volunteers we are able to continue our mission of sharing the finest art and cultural programming with our community and are looking forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come. We ask you to be a part of our mission by taking advantage of one or more of  the following offerings.

Thank you for your interest in The Society of the Four Arts! Our programs are open to the public and membership is not required to attend our world-class cultural and educational programs. That being said, we have two options for membership.

1Library members receive borrowing and laptop computer privileges. Membership in the King Library costs $20 for Palm Beach residents and $25 for all others.  In addition, membership to the Children’s Library is free for all families with children.  Upon visiting the Children’s Library, you will have an opportunity to fill out a library card at no charge.  This card allows you to check out materials from the Children’s Library and your information can be added to the Children’s Library mailing list for future newsletter mailings.

Join the Four Arts King Library

2The second type of membership is more of a tradition. Four Arts memberships are open to everyone and the number is limited to match the number of seats in the auditorium. As a result, there is a two to three year wait to join. A current member may pick up an application on your behalf and two members must sponsor your application. Members can pick up an application from the Rovensky Administration building Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The Society of the Four Arts is proud to be a community serving cultural institution and all of our programs are open to the public. We hope to see you at the Four Arts often this season!


Four Arts Contemporaries

Who Are We?

The Four Arts Contemporaries is composed of the young supporter of the Four Arts, with most members being in their 20s, 30s and  40s.  During the season, November through April, these young supporters hold events encouraging the appreciation of art, drama, music and literature — the “four arts” represented by The Society.

Special Events

Four Arts Contemporaries members receive multiple benefits at The Society of the Four Arts, as well as invitations to exclusive arts-related events.  Past events have included private gallery tours, wine tastings, and trips to Art Basel in Miami.
