Patrons of the Arts

How it works

The Patron program was created to provide committed support to the participating fine artists of the Orange Beach Festival of Art through dedicated funds which are used to purchase artwork during our annual show.  This demonstrates to the artists our community’s commitment to the Festival and its artists, and in turn works to recruit both new and returning talent.

You select your level of participation and donate those funds to Friends of the Arts.  You receive two “Art Dollars” vouchers for use at the art festival to select your favorite piece(s). It’s a win-win-win:  You are able to spend the majority of your dollars on original fine art; the fine artists are guaranteed committed interest in the festival and their work; and the portion retained by the Friends of the Arts directly funds our other show artists including performing artists and demonstrating artists.
