Friends of the Arts

The Friends of the Arts is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the arts in our Gulf Coast region. Being a part of this dynamic group is both fun and rewarding through the numerous activities and events that the Friends help support at the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach, including:

  • The Festival of Art the second full weekend in March.
  • Summer Art Camp in June.
  • After School Arts Program, September through April.
  • Arts Afire fall festival in October.
  • Frank Brown Int'l Songwriter's Festival in November
  • Light Up The Arts in December.
  • Artist Receptions throughout the year.
