Naples cultural lights have shined bright for decades and attracted arts patrons and artists for decades. The visual and performing arts scene is thriving. The arts are just as alive within the Bonita Bay community. The coastal setting and tropical light inspire creative expression in art, crafts, theatre and music. Organized by the community association, clubs and guest artists and performers fill a lively calendar.
Naples Arts & Culture
Theater, music, dance and the visual arts thrive in Southwest Florida. The area boasts a variety of entertainment venues, from performing arts halls that showcase Broadway productions to community theater in intimate settings.
Home to more than 500 resident artists and musicians, 100 galleries and studios, and 37 arts and cultural organizations, Naples was named the #1 Small Art Town in America by author and art critic John Villani in 2005, and listed among the Top 25 Cities for Art in the June 2008 issue of American Style Magazine.
