At Art After Dark on December 17th, the documentary about the restoration of La Claridad by filmmaker Dave Simonds will premiere to the general public surrounded by programming related to the architect Marion Sims Wyeth.

Golfview Road was ground zero for the 1920s explosion of Mediterranean architecture on the island of Palm Beach. The 1924 Marion Sims Wyeth house La Claridad received a major restoration (2018 - 2020) which was documented by filmmaker Dave Simonds. As we follow this extensive restoration project we meet an ensemble of historians, architects, builders, former residents, and neighbors who bring to life this iconic house. The history of the grand house on the corner guides us toward a deeper understanding of who we were, where we are today, and where we're heading.
