Art Show and Sale Encore 2017

Jan 13 – Feb 11, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. in the Nature Center

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park will host Florida Hall of Fame Artist, James Hutchinson, and eight sculptors from the Society of Animal Artists for an art show and sale. Some of the sculptors include Florida natives Renee Bemis, Martin Gates and Geoffrey Smith and world famous, Kent Ullberg.  A portion of the sales will benefit the Natural Science Education Fund.



At a time when natural areas along south Florida’s coast are almost nonexistent, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park stands out as an “island in time”.  It preserves the natural heritage of subtropical coastal habitat that once covered southeast Florida.

Nestled on an Atlantic Ocean front barrier island, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is the only state park in Palm Beach County.  It is an environmental treasure which has been preserved for present and future generations to discover and experience.

Exploring almost two miles of pristine beach and swimming, snorkeling and fishing in the clear blue waters of the Atlantic are only the beginning of the fun you can have at the Park.

Other amenities include the Nature & Welcome Center, Beach Outfitters Gift Shop, Kayak Rentals, a children’s playground, nature trails, and picnicking facilities.

You might want to take advantage of the many Special Events offered in the Park throughout the year: children’s programs, guided adventures, recreational skills lessons, MacArthur Under Moonlight concerts, Summer Camps, and Blue Grass concerts.

Open daily, we offer something for everyone!
