Portrait of a Community is a project that captures life in Arcadia through painting, sculpture, photography, and words. Artists will capture people going about their everyday lives at our community partners—businesses, organizations, public offices, city and county departments and more from July 2018 through January 2019. This project is underway now and will culminate in an art show at South Florida State College – DeSoto Campus on February 22 and 23, 2019.

The Second Annual All Florida Cowboy Art Championship will be held on March 6, 2019, in conjunction with the Arcadia All Florida Rodeo. Watch our website for more information.
