Named for the wild rosemary that grew in abundance on the property when it was founded, Rosemary Beach was established in 1995 beside the white sand and sparkling water of the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. This quintessential New Urbanism town comprises 107 acres and 2500 feet of beach along scenic highway 30A.
In keeping with the tenets of New Urbanism, Rosemary Beach was designed to be walkable, with pedestrian boardwalks and footpaths that meander throughout and to the vibrant town center with restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, bookstore, day spa, design services and other businesses.
A Stage for Public Art
Greens, pocket gardens and squares shape the town and set the stage for outdoor sculpture and public art to become a part of the town’s design. Against this backdrop, we are pleased to debut our first sculpture exhibition. The purpose of this event is to enhance the quality and excellence of Rosemary Beach through complementing its architectural heritage and natural beauty with outdoor sculpture.
Late last year, experienced sculptors were invited to submit work for consideration and 11 pieces were selected for inclusion. The featured artists have extensive resumes and together their work is included in numerous public, corporate, private and museum collections both here in the states as well as abroad. We are excited to be able to offer works of such high caliber.
In addition to sculptures by our featured artists, the exhibition also includes Colors of My Mind by the late George Rodrigue, whose depiction of a blue dog dominates his art and is widely recognized. This sculpture is being provided by special arrangement with the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts that was formed by Mr. Rodrigue and continues to support a variety of art educational programs.
