Since 1970, the Marco Island Center for the Arts has been the perfect social hub where culture and community shine.

Marco Island Center for the Arts

Formerly known as the Art League of Marco Island, the Marco Island Center for the Arts is proud to bring our community events and exhibits that feature a wide variety of styles of “art”. From visual arts and literature, to concerts and live theatre, their calendar is always filled with a diversity of events that cater to every age to foster an appreciation of the arts. To achieve this goal, the Center also provides arts education programs geared for children all the way to the elderly.

Marco Island entertainment


Every year, the Center blends the visual with performance to provide the community with a quintessential slate of Marco Island entertainment. The 2018-2019 Season is no different and includes a vast array of concerts, film screenings (Artflicks), and artist talks. Their monthly concert series “Musical Interludes” includes events honoring jazz, pop, and world music, spotlighting both local talent and artists from across the globe.


This is where the Center truly shines, bringing an eclectic mix of varying styles throughout the entire year. New shows premiere every month, prompting the return of another patron favorite - Second Tuesday! As the name designates, this official reception on the second Tuesday of every month (5:30PM - 7:00PM) opens the new monthly exhibit. Not only do you get to see the newest work that has come to the Center, but the artists themselves are on hand to share their inspiration, techniques, and own personal love of the arts. Standouts for this season include artwork spotlighting “Comic Relief” (January) and works from the “Southwest Florida Pastel Society” (March).


Since their “Art League” days, the Center has offered a variety of annual educational programs catering to every age group. All of the classes and workshops are taught by accomplished artists in their prospective field.
