There’s always something to do in the Palm Beaches! That’s why every week, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County helps you with three ideas — one that’s free, one that’s affordable and one that’s a splurge. Your events curator is the Cultural Concierge, a free service that provides customized cultural recommendations and more at palmbeachculture.com/concierge.
Smithsonian exhibition in West Palm
From the invention of the photograph in the late 1800s to the modern fascination of sharing photos online via social media, the art of photography has evolved significantly. However, how many times do you get to see the complexity of planet Earth from the perspective of space? The Center for Creative Education in West Palm Beach is currently hosting the traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, “Earth from Space,” in its Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery. The show features an array of satellite images, collected over the past four decades, which display our world in a decidedly different light — a humbling experience for the shutterbug or scientist in your family.
“Earth from Space”: On display from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays through January 2019. Sallie & Berton Korman Gallery at the Center for Creative Education, 425 24th St., West Palm Beach. Info: 561-805-9927 or www.cceflorida.org

Start your autumn right — with the arts!

Beauty in black-and-white in Palm Beach
Imagine photographing some of the most iconic celebrities of the 20th century — Amelia Earhart, Fred Astaire, George Gershwin, Shirley Temple, Walt Disney — and making a significant dent in the history of the art form, as well. That’s the story of Edward Steichen, the late portrait and art photographer who captured the spirit of these icons on celluloid during the 1920s and ’30s. An exhibition of his work, “Star Power,” opens Tuesday at the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum in Palm Beach.
“Star Power: Edward Steichen’s Glamour Photography”: Runs Tuesday through Jan. 6. Adults $18, children 13 to 17 $10, children 6 to 12 $3 and children under 6 free. Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, 1 Whitehall Way, Palm Beach. Info: 561-655-2833 or www.flaglermuseum.us
