We believe the visual, literary, and performing arts have the power to heal and bring us together. All donations are 100% tax deductible and impact artists from around the world and our community.
Atlantic Center for the Arts has a rich cultural legacy since its founding by Doris Leeper in 1977. It brings together the world’s greatest painters, composers, writers and choreographers to live and work during a residency on our 68-acre campus in New Smyrna Beach.
Community is valued: we provide over 250 free public programs yearly. Our Arts & Wellness programs nurture children, help caregivers create new memories with their loved ones, and provide a safe place for Veterans in writing workshops.
Atlantic Center for the Arts is a place that gives all artists the opportunity to thrive. It supports
40 Florida artists at Arts on Douglas Gallery, and presents IMAGES: A Festival of the Arts, ranked one of the top 100 outdoor art festivals in the U.S.
Your contribution will make a difference to the more than 70,000 people that we inspire each year. Thank you.
Atlantic Center for the Arts has achieved the 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency on GuideStar! Visit our profile
