Annual Appeal

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE ARTS

We’ve all experienced a time like no other. That’s why we’re especially thankful for your friendship and support, because your generosity ensures an enduring, safe and thriving arts community on Marco and throughout the surrounding areas.  Always remember that you are part of our Art Family and Marco Island Center for the Arts is your Art Home.

Your Art Home here on Marco Island began as The Art League founded by a small group of passionate artists and individuals. That small group has grown over the last 50+ years into the Art Center of today.

Demonstrate your commitment to the work of the Art Center by giving generously to this year’s Annual Fund. The success of this fund – which remains the lifeblood of our exhibitions, classes and workshops and programming – can take this institution to a new level of innovation and community service. Your tax-deductible gift will help to enrich the cultural life of the entire community and region.
