Campus & Facilities
Located in the heart of West Palm Beach's historic neighborhoods with Howard Park, the Palm Beach County Convention Center, CityPlace and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts to the north, the Armory Art Center campus is an architectural and educational treasure. The campus is composed of three facilities including the historic Palm Beach County National Guard Armory Building, the Muriel S. Kaplan Building and the Young Artists Studio Facility. The original Armory building is an Art Deco gem, built by William Manly King in 1939 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. Greeted by the Morris & Rose Kraft Sculpture Gardens and The Junior League of the Palm Beaches Festival Arts Plaza, one steps through the Seymore and Gladys Ziv Courtyard, enters the Robert & Mary Montgomery Historic Building and steps in the East Gallery which hosts regional and national juried and international exhibitions. Studios for printmaking, digital imaging, jewelry making, metalsmithing, glass fusing and photography surround the 4,000 square foot multipurpose hall which hosts lectures, exhibits and special events. Rental of this facility can be arranged. The Historic Robert & Mary Montgomery Armory Buiding opens onto the Rose Kraft Plaza surrounded by exotic and rare palms.
The Muriel S. Kaplan Building is located just off the courtyard and adjacent to the 2,000 square foot Ansin Kiln Complex. These buildings house ceramics, figure sculpture, bronze casting and 3D design studios.
The newest addition to the campus is the 11,000 square foot Young Artists Studio Facility. Beautiful, spacious studios with the truest of natural northern exposure lighting host the painting, drawing and youth programs.
