we love art so much, we built a hotel around it 

From the lobby to the corridors, to the guestrooms, suites and even powder rooms, our hotel is unique, boutique and a true work of art. White Elephant Palm Beach was designed with this 120- piece art collection in mind, including our 7ft installation of a White Elephant sculpture by Frederick Prescott who welcomes each guest with a nod at the front door. 
Below is a sampling of some of the wonderful artists and special pieces, with more information on the entire collection available at the front desk.

Artist 3

Bernhard Buhmann

These surreal paintings conjure alternate realities, complete with jesters, buskers, and flying machines. Buhmann works from his imagination, fusing elements from art history and science fiction to create images that are uniquely dream-like in their inherent formal familiarity, but are in fact complete surrealist fantasy.

Artist 5

Joe Whale aka "Doodle Boy"

When 10-year-old Joe Whale of Shrewsbury, England found it difficult to concentrate, he turned his attention to doodling. Using the front of his notebooks, extra scrap paper, and any other surface he could get his hands on, Whale doodled the day away, creating imaginative creatures, elaborate worlds, and wild storylines.

WEPB commissioned Joe to make 36 unique works for each guest bathroom throughout the hotel…look closely and you will spot a "white elephant" hidden in each of the works.
