Michael Singer: West Palm’s Most Popular Artist

Two artists in competition for West Palm’s most popular artist:  environmental artist Michael Singer and muralist Eduardo Mendieta.   I think that Singer has the lead with two works at the Palm Beach Courthouse, the Downtown Waterfront promenade and piers, the new Intracoastal mangrove islands, the Commons Park fountains and shade structures and Howard Park landscape.   In the next couple of years, his shoreline mango planters will appear in the Intracoastal and his design elements for the energy regeneration facility on the edge of Fresh Waters.    His design for the wall between Howard Park and the Convention Center is still possible.

Michael Singer maintains design studios in Delray Beach and Burlington, Vermont.  His associate, Jason Bregman, participated in the Public Art Think Tank for West Palm Beach in December.

  1. Couldn’t help but notice the design for the wall on the convention center western facade. While that would be an improvement, it’s a shame that the County threw away Joe Minicozzi’s excellent idea to have the convention center face Howard Park and engage it, rather than turn its back to it. What a wasted chance and a poor urban design outcome.

    The County should be ashamed. We ended up with a despotic blank wall to greet guests into our city and convention center instead.
