In the beginning, a group of Fort Myers Beach citizens decided the Island needed an art organization that would support and promote ALL kinds of art, whether it be theater, fine arts, or the many musicians that live on the Island, on and in the area around Fort Myers Beach. Founded November of 2011, The Greater Fort Myers Beach Friends of the Arts is a 501 C (3) tax deductible charitable organization. Its mission is to facilitate and fund arts presentations in the greater Fort Myers Beach area; enhancing economic conditions and the quality of life.
Since our inception we have supported Paint the Beach – a Plein Air Festival, Fort Myers Beach Film Festival, Beach Elementary School Art Programs, Beach Art Co-Op, Beach Haus Productions and Cypress Lake High School of the Arts and much more.
