Performing Arts Center

Adjoining The Society for the Four Art's Fitz Eugene Dixon Education Building is Four Arts Hall, a transformation of a 1920’s gymnatorium into an elegant, multi-purpose space which supports the Four Art’s educational, community and social programs. The 10,000 sf Center, like the Dixon Building, was built in the classic Palm Beach Spanish Mediterranean re-vival style. And like the Dixon Building, it has been given a classic modern update that refers to its Spanish Mediterranean, Addison Mizner roots.

The theater’s interior has an extensive stage area for musical and theatrical performances as well as readings and lectures. However, its lighting, flat floor and movable seating allow it to easily change into an event and banquet hall that accommodates 350 people. Its acoustics are also flexible, being amenable to both performances and the sound level of a lively party.

The interior is warm and celebratory, with all of the theater's walls and ceiling paneled in white oak. Giving it a bolt of energy are the bright red accents of the upholstered chairs, curtains, and the lobby's built-in seating. And like the Center, the bronze wall fixtures and chandeliers which we designed are contemporary interpretations of those used in the 1920’s. Special entrances for the disabled and elderly make the hall available to all.
