Great communities create great organizations – not the other way around. In 1979, BIG ARTS was created, by, and for the community, and owes its rich history to a small band of dedicated artists who drew inspiration from each other and from the breathtaking island beauty that infused their work with grace and authenticity. They
set out to create a special gathering place where artistic and educational experiences were accessible to all. Today that vision is alive and well. With the help of our loyal donors and supporters, BIG ARTS will carry that vision forward – providing joy, inspiration and a sense of community for generations to come.

BIG ARTS hosts a wide variety of events across its 1.5-acre, state-of-the-art campus. BIG ARTS yearly offerings feature live music and performances, exhibits by world class artists, film series, lecture series as well as workshops and classes.
