Adirondack Community Chair Project
Over the summer, staff put out a public call for local creatives, artists, illustrators and designers to turn a collection of 12 Adirondack chairs into works of art. The project asks participants to bring their creative flair through decorating an Adirondack chair highlighting one of Lake Worth Beach’s unique destinations or distinctive attributes of the quaint beach-side community.
Once painted, each Adirondack chair will be positioned at strategic points throughout Lake Worth Beach making the urban setting more beautiful and more inspiring for local residents, artists and visitors alike. The fully functioning Adirondack chairs will also provide relaxation points to take in the many sights and sounds of the city.
The Adirondack Community Art Project is being sponsored by long-time Lake Worth Beach residents and local realtors, The Allen Team (Bo, Erin and Jon Allen) as part of their annual community outreach project. Below are images of some of the chairs.
Yarn Bomb Installation at "the hideout"
Art Installation: Soul Talks with Palms
Artist: Milena Arrango
The Lake Worth Beach Community Redevelopment Agency and LULA Lake Worth Arts have added a splash of color this fall with a yarn bomb installation located in the heart of Downtown. This installation was created to give visitors and residents a space where they feel peace. A revered place to stop, breathe, listen and appreciate. Residents and visitors can find this new temporary art installation located within the tropical landscape at 509 Lake Avenue.
Vacant Storefront Initiative
Has your commercial property been cited by Code? Is your vacancy making the block look unsightly? If yes, we encourage you to participate in this new program. The Lake Worth Beach CRA, in partnership with the City of Lake Worth Beach, is excited to announce the Vacant Storefront Initiative. The purpose of this program is to add an artistic flair to vacant storefront windows in our downtown in an effort to enhance the consumers shopping experience. Simply adding vibrant clings to your windows could activate the street and benefit the downtown as a whole.
Each design has been created to enrich, celebrate and promote the uniqueness of Lake Worth Beach. Commercial property owners can download the graphical designs to place on their vacant windows here.
Lake Worth Street Banner Project
LULA Lake Worth Arts, in coordination with the CRA, is the sole agency responsible for placing street banners on a majority of our thoroughfares. LULA created the Street Banner Program to prominently welcome our visitors, celebrate special events/holidays and to be used as a means of wayfinding. These banners are located along the City’s Gateways (6th Avenue South & 10th Avenue North) and Dixie Highway from 7th Avenue South to 11th Avenue North. LULA is currently in talks with the City to eventually install decorative street banners along Lake & Lucene Avenues west of Dixie Highway.

Artists Kim Rizio and Isabel Gouveia of Lake Worth are the creative geniuses that have spearheaded this multiyear planter beautification project.
