CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show | November 8-22, 2015

WEST PALM BEACH, FL
NOVEMBER 8-22, 2015

CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show will come to West Palm Beach on a scale of which the city has never seen. The two week event will begin on Nov. 8 and offer 14 days of interactive art experiences as a prelude to Art Basel as the art world comes to South Florida in early December. CANVAS will lengthen that stay. There’s nothing like this concept anywhere in the world. CANVAS will showcase over 20 artists from around the world with with big name recognition and a few ultra-talented ones who are emerging onto the art scene. They will each paint enormous murals on public and private buildings, constructing public sculptures in parks, and creating installations – all in a walking distance within the Downtown District.
