Through intentional programming, we are expanding access to the arts for all who seek it. The Alliance for the Arts is a creative hub that spurs and supports self-expression, imagination, and equity. It is the place to gather, meet new people, start conversations, bring attention to, and, ultimately, solve the challenges our community faces.
Your creativity, laughter and support make the Alliance what it is – a strong community of cultural supporters that truly believe in the power of the arts. Support the Alliance and the future of arts through membership, donations or come volunteer with us.
Connect with each other and the arts with onsite art classes for all ages and abilities, our monthly Night Market, outdoor events and entertainment, engaging exhibitions or simply come explore our ArtsPark.

The juried entries come together for an award-winning and exciting exhibition representing today’s contemporary Florida artists.
