Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts,
Located in West Palm Beach, Florida, is one of the premier
performing arts centers in the Southeast with a growing national
and international reputation. True to the spirit in which it was
created, the Center is expanding programming by initiating projects
on local, national and international levels. The world-class Kravis
Center opened fully funded, with a total construction cost of $68
million, of which a remarkable $49 million came from private
individuals and corporations. The Kravis Center is a success story
that provides communities worldwide with an example of a
thriving performing arts center and a major community and
economic catalyst. Set on 10.6 acres of property at the highest
point in the city, the Kravis Center includes three venues -- the
2,193-seat Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall, the flexible
300-seat Rinker Playhouse and the outdoor Michael and Andrew
Gosman Amphitheatre with a capacity for 1,400 patrons.
Additionally, the Kravis Center facilities include the Cohen
Pavilion, which houses the Weiner Banquet Center meeting and
banquet facility and The Picower Foundation Arts Education
Center, along with a five-level parking garage.
Fall 2008 marks the Center's 17th Anniversary season and the
number of events hosted annually has grown to more than 800,
with attendance of more than 500,000 patrons. Many regionally
based arts organizations call the Kravis Center their home including
Ballet Florida, Miami City Ballet, Palm Beach Opera, and the Palm
Beach Pops. During the 2008-2009 season, the Kravis Center itself
will present more than 350 performances featuring acclaimed
artists from every discipline. Established as a leading force in the
social fabric of the community, its many outreach programs are as
broad and varied as the community itself. To date, the Center has
opened the door to the performing arts for more than 1.1 million
school children as well as thousands of economically disadvantaged
senior citizens, minorities and community groups.
Founded In 1894, West Palm Is Oldest City
In Palm Beach County
On Nov. 5, 1894, 87 of the town's 500 or so
residents, gathered "atop the calaboose" (the
jailhouse) at Poinsettia (now Dixie) and
Banyan streets and voted 77-1 to incorporate
"West Palm Beach." The area had originally
been called Westpalmbeach, a single word,
then split into three words.
The historic buildings, structures, and sites
within the boundaries of the City are listed
by "neighborhoods." The concept of historic
neighborhoods was developed as a means of
organizing areas within the community that
have unique characteristics which set them
apart from other areas. The boundaries of
historic neighborhoods were established based
on geography, topography, historic use, and
types of buildings within the area.

Palm Beach Maritime Museum
Education is our passion ... Our first
exhibit was a fascinating collection of
artifacts from the Battleship Maine, which
sank after a mysterious explosion in
Havana Harbor ... The rest is history. It's
an eerie feeling to see the bugle that blew
taps for the Army contingent on board on
the eve of the ship's destruction and see
salvaged uniforms in perfect condition
that were never again to be worn by the
victims. One of the permanent exhibits on
Peanut Island is John F. Kennedy's
Bunker ... Constructed by the SeaBees
under the direction of the Secret Service.
Peanut Island is very near the Kennedy
Compound in Palm Beach and the bunker
was a nuclear war contingency facility
during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It is a
stark reminder of the Cold War at its peak,
and our military past is certainly relevant
Our living reef system is only one of
nature's treasures to be studied here.
Here in the Palm Beach area, we have an
intensive mix of residential development,
historical cultural resources, commercial
ship traffic, agriculture and recreational
use of our waterways. We have
crystal-clear saltwater at our docks and
part of our mission is to help keep it that
way. We plan to collect data for use by
graduate and high school programs ...
and for use by environmental engineers,
both commercial and jurisdictional.
Currently under construction is an
innovative "Virtual Port" which will include
automated data collection from in situ
sensors [e.g. salinity, turbidity, pH, tides,
current] as well as real-time television
both above and underwater.We'll keep you
posted as we progress.
