Open to Public
The inaugural year of the Polly Jessup Design Series will include a historically important exhibition on Polly Jessup (1899–1988), who was bestowed the title “Grande Dame of Palm Beach Decorators” in a 1987 New York Times editorial. Jessup was a nationally renowned interior designer whose designs were integral to the gracious lifestyle for which Palm Beach is known. The exhibit will tell the mostly unknown story of Jessup’s life and career through her interior design work and recollections from clients and colleagues.
The Preservation Foundation is delighted to be given the opportunity to pay homage to someone so important to the history of the island and is grateful to the Society of the Four Arts for the use of the images from its Jessup Collection.
This exhibition is generously underwritten by the Daniel Family.
