An Invitation to Participate in the Great Give, and Support the ARTS

Now that I have settled into my role as chair of the Arts Council, I find that with this role requires my attention to many facets regarding the challenges our board faces. We have many a task ahead of us.

As we embark on our next decade, we are moving forward in creating a vibrant art and cultural community, our goal is to build an endowment that will not only provide for our future financial needs but also fund an art center on the historic 1923 Stuart High School campus.

This is where you come in, April 24th is the annual “Great Give”. The “Great Give” is Palm Beach & Martin Counties 24-hour online giving event led by United Way of Palm Beach and Martin County designed to raise as much money as possible for local non-profits like us in one day.

Please consider going online between midnight to midnight on April 24th and giving as much as you can. With your help we can foster the arts in Martin County for future generations.

Thank you,

Neil Capozzi, Chairman

Between now and May 1, you have the opportunity to leave your permanent imprint on the Martin County arts scene by submitting your own idea for the name that will become the official designation for the ever-evolving Stuart arts and entertainment district.

The district is bordered by Colorado to the west, extents north the SE 6th, down Delaware, east along MLK Blvd, around Bruner Pond to connect with Kindred and Johnson.
