Life of architect Marion Sims Wyeth exploredArchitecture is an intricate art form that is both studied and celebrated — especially here in South Florida, where many 20th century masters practiced their craft. You can  explore the work of one of those masters, Marion Sims Wyeth, at the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach’s exhibition “MSW: Architect & Artist.” There, you can view Wyeth’s watercolors drawn during his travels as a young architect, and see how his form evolved to create some of the most famous buildings in Palm Beach and across the U.S. Don’t miss out!
