The James Royal Palm is thrilled to be working in partnership with YoungArts, which identifies and supports emerging artists in the visual, literary and performing arts.  In celebration of the hotel opening in October of 2012, The James worked with local artist Lucia Sanchez, who is a 2011 alumnae of the YoungArts program, and her father Oliver Sanchez to create a one-of-a-kind preview piece. “Untitled,” inspired by “An Ocean Apart,” the vision of the hotel’s art curator, is a piece that expresses the certainty of rebirth, the lure of the resort mind-set, and the artistry of travel. The piece was installed in front of the hotel’s iconic fountain and driveway as a preview to what guests and locals can expect to experience at The James Royal Palm.

The James and YoungArts will collaborate on specialty projects and events throughout the year.
