Morikami needs your help to preserve the culturally-rich programming we provide year-round! 

As the programs and events at Morikami are sustained heavily by grants acquired by state partnership, Morikami could be gravely affected by budget cuts come June 30th, being one of 469 qualified 2015-2016 Division of Cultural Affairs (DCA) grant applicants in limbo during this legislative period.

Take action TODAY and reach out to your Florida Senator and Representative to remind them of the importance of the arts and cultural programs that impact our community. Encourage them to raise their voice and help secure appropriations to protect the well-established state-grants programs.


Since we first opened our doors in 1977, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens has been dedicated to engaging a diverse audience by presenting Japanese cultural experiences that educate and inspire.

Through our fascinating and ever-changing exhibitions, our unique annual festivals and special events, the serene gardens and our diverse educational programs, Morikami has become a platform for enhancing the lives of both our visitors and the greater community.

According to the Florida Cultural Alliance, Florida’s not-for-profit arts and culture industry is worth over $3.1 billion in economic activity, supports over 88,326 full-time jobs, and returns over $446 million to local and state government treasuries each year.

We hope that you see value in experiencing transformative growth through arts and culture, and recognize the economic prosperity that Morikami provides throughout Palm Beach County and the entire State of Florida.

Morikami is at risk of losing necessary resources for keeping Florida’s arts and culture industry moving forward.
