The Hibel Museum of Art was opened in Palm Beach in 1977 with
the Clayton and Ethelbelle Bion Craig collection of Edna Hibel paintings (180)
and original stone lithographs (200) and personal antiques, paperweights, Asian
artifacts and furniture from the Craig household. Shortly afterwards a wonderful
collection of Asian snuff bottles was donated by the Caldwell Family. Over
the years the Museum received numerous donations of Edna Hibel work, paintings,
lithographs, drawings, dolls and sculpture along with many non-Hibel art works.
The Museum remained in Palm Beach until 1999 when it was temporarily relocated
to Lake Worth, FL until their new facility on the John D. MacArthur Campus of Florida
Atlantic University at Abacoa Town Center in Jupiter, FL was completed..
The Edna Hibel Art Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit organization,
operates the Hibel Museum of Art through a Board of Trustees.
The Museum continues to offers a Concert Series inside the Hibel Museum on the
second Sunday of each month from
December through March at 2. A "Tea" series, lectures,
children's art camp and other special exhibits
are offered throughout the year. Call (561) 622-5560 for further information.
