Society of the Four Arts

Society of the Four Arts Review

Despite widespread misconceptions of its members-only exclusivity, this privately endowed institution—founded in 1936 to encourage appreciation of art, music, drama, and literature—is funded for public enjoyment. Members do have special privileges like free admission, but anyone can enjoy the special programming that goes on here throughout the year. The Esther B. O'Keeffe gallery building artfully melds an exhibition hall that houses traveling exhibits with a 700-seat theater. A library designed by prominent Mizner-peer Maurice Fatio, a children's library, a botanical garden, and the Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden, round out the facilities and are open daily. In addition to the winter art shows, the organization offers films, lectures, workshops, and concerts; a complete schedule is available on the society's website.
