Two women, one a philanthropist and the other a socialite, got together for an open house which resulted in the birth of the Art Guild of Boca Raton and later the Boca Raton Museum of Art. In 2005, this museum was named "The Official Fine Arts Museum for the City of Boca Raton." This museum holds a vast collection of contemporary art, prints, drawings, sculptures, photographs and decorative art as well as an outdoor sculpture garden. The gift shop at this museum has also been hailed as the "Best Gift Shop of Boca Raton" for its unique selection of gifts. The museum boasts an art school and also hosts annual events like auctions, galas and outdoor art festivals.
