The mission of the Dunedin Fine Art Center is to offer creative educational experiences in the visual arts.
Our goal is to stimulate awareness and appreciation of the arts through changing exhibitions, lectures, studio classes and workshops that can strengthen interpretive ability and interactive creativity for both children and adults.
The vision of the Dunedin Fine Art Center is to be the premier art center in Florida, providing unparalleled educational, cultural and creative experiences thought the arts.
The original idea for an art center in Dunedin dates back to 1969 whenthe Dunedin Junior Service League, in recognition of the importance of the arts to everyday life, resolved to work toward the creation of a cultural climate, and the eventual building of a fine arts and cultural center. Both the League and the City agreed that an art center would be a wonderful heritage for the City of Dunedin.
The vision and commitment of the City, its citizens and members of the League were realized in 1974 when ground was broken on The Dunedin Fine Arts Center. That vision and commitment was, and remains, to create and grow a "Fine Arts and Cultural Center, a Public Arts School and Library, open at all times to the general public, not restricted to any group or groups."
Over the years the Dunedin Fine Art Center continues to strive to implement that vision and commitment through its educational and cultural programming. The Dunedin Fine Art Center is committed to preserving the educational and cultural programming through reaffirming the following values:
Importance of the cultural "quality of life" benefits provided by the Dunedin Fine Art Center's mission and programs.
Commitment to the continuation of the facility and funding partnership between the Center and the Citizens of North Pinellas County to outstanding art education and exhibitions.
Support for community commitment to the ongoing fund-raising and development goal of a 5 million dollar endowment which would provide financial security to support the work of the Dunedin Fine Art Center.
